Divine Reason

Sunday morning with a dear friend at a neighborhood institution

People sit and write for hours at a time, undisturbed

The pastries try hard, the atmosphere doesn't

Two Taurus mothers of Aries daughters

Across the street, the great unfinished Cathedral

Weathered murals decorate the outside

Logos, a good metaphor for the spirit of the morning.

  1. So visually beautiful, this one. The highlight being, of course, the two beautiful women.

  3. Yes, you're both so beautiful, such strong faces. And this looks like a place near the Cathedral of St. John the Divine where I used to wander about --

    1. Elizabeth, it is indeed that place, right across the street from the Cathedral. The Hungarian Pasty Shop is one of the very few establishments that has been there since I arrived in this neighborhood almost 39 years ago now!

  5. I've not been blogging for a while (weather!) and when not blogging I tend not to read blogs either so haven't visited for a while. It's a fascinating set of photographs but having not seen the header before - that has really struck me. (And the people writing.)

    1. Susan, mornings like this one are what make New York City special. Unless we get out and do things like this, it's so easy to forget, because it can be a tough city, too. But I do still love it.

  9. Lovely post. Good to see your radiant face. I can't help but feel that cafe was place of spiritual revival. It is fitting that you were so near to a cathedral. However I pray that mine while bearing the identical name does not get the same ,moniker.

    1. Dear Bruce, I think the spiritual sustenance in that place is one of the reasons it has lasted so long. As for your Cathedral, never fear, it will be finished in its own sweet time, emphasis on the "sweet." Love to you, brother dear.
