A Feel-Good Friday in New York City

You could tell there was something special in the air this morning when even the ConEd plant looked beautiful.

Birds of a different feather circled above…

…and Christo was perched on the church, ready to begin another day.

He let out a rousing call as he took off from the church, effortlessly gliding around the neighborhood.

Then, as has become routine over the last week, from every direction, the young hawks flew in…

image

…circling above the rooftops of 3rd St. and Ave A…

image

…flying beautifully, higher and smoother than ever before.

They eventually landed near the church, calling back to their father that they were here and ready to eat.

As Dad went off to hunt, our hearts were warmed with the thought that all three young hawks are thriving.  So far, they have overcome very tough odds (hawks have about a 20% chance of survival in their first year), but these young hawks are growing stronger every day. 

A few hours later, just 2 miles down the isle of Manhattan as the crow flies, New York City celebrated another group that defeated all odds, and broke records! The “Canyon of Heroines” erupted with sheer joy honoring the amazing 2015 World Cup Champion US Women’s Soccer team (with an historic, first-ever NYC ticker-tape parade for a women’s team).  

What a wonderful start to the weekend…
