Tunes for a Monday Morning

The Chrystler Building viewed through the trees of 42nd Street

The trees of 42nd Street

"Life…we understand it differently at different stages. It’s what is interesting about getting older, you realize your relationship with the past is always negotiable. There is a lot of freedom in that, because you realize you can go back to what you did such a long time ago. You can talk with the dead, talk with your lost self, your disappeared self, and you can visit those places again, and understand it differently. That makes a huge difference." - Jeanette Winterson


The tree pictures above were taken on 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. The quote comes from an an interview with Winterson on the Lambda Literary site, which I highly recommend. (via Theodora Goss)
