Winter’s Tale Part II

Pursefixation against the Brooklyn Bridge

And he was seldom out of sight of the new bridges, which had married beautiful womanly Brooklyn to her rich uncle, Manhattan; had put the city’s hand out to the country; and were the end of the past because they spanned not only distance and deep water but dreams and time.”

Winter’s Tale, Mark Helprin

And that’s where my Winter’s Tale brought me: to the foot of Brooklyn Bridge – the colossal construction of steel with monumental columns made of limestone, granite and cement that became an imposing symbol of the power of technology and optimism of the time. Today, embodying the grandiose spirit of New York City, this transcendent architectural marvel still attracts thousands of people every day. Prodigious in the eyes of its first admirers, it transgresses the time and astounds the hearts of crowds today, and no doubt, it will still impress the ones that come after.

Winter’s Tale Part I

Blizzard in Central Park

They’re not just dreams. Not anymore, I dream more than I wake now, and, at times, I have crossed over. Can’t you see? I’ve been there.”

Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin.

Furry Tale Chapter II

Fur coordinated outfit

The story of the girl from the woods continues… (If you haven’t read Chapter I, you might wish to do so first.)

It was a promising fall day in the North Woods when the girl woke up. She opened her eyes and saw a gold light reflected on the ceiling of her room. She smiled. The eastern breeze made the ironwood trees slowly drop their golden leaves. The girl knew that if she had wanted to find the Magnificent Kingdom that day, she couldn’t waste a minute and let the sun surprise her at dusk.
