For some reason Wednesday was extra bright.
They were painting the outside of U-Haul for the season......
had parked a silvery movie set wagon
these men( a symphony in silver in blue) were nodding to Hannukah maybe.
I'm not sure what the pink feather tree celebrates--- but it's Chelsea....
Anyway the afternoon turned cold and gray
so we set out for the Union Square craftsmarket
(under the direction of George Washington!)
where the winter greens set us up for the solstice
or just plain GREEN.
As a good American, I long to buy things.....especially things made locally.
Here super tee-shirts made in Brooklyn
and glamorous alpaca hats
but there were also the gypsy delights of India
and Paz from Spain's exquisite textile jewelry.
I like the postcard and philosophy of Hazel Village whose "animals live round a pond in the forest where they do industrious projects together and make each other presents."
I bought apples and pears.
