my spot in the city.



this morning ruby (my 18-month-old friend) and i attempted to escape the desperate throws of a dying winter by passing our time in the american museum of natural history.

ruby's favorite bit is the giant giraffe in the gift shop.
mine is the set of windows just off the dinosaur exhibit on the fourth floor. you can sit on the benches there and see nothing but the green canopy of central park and light. oh, the light! sitting there i find it impossible not to love this city.

(ps: ruby helped me type this post. she's quite adept with the space bar.)

I never take time to do stuff like this, but love it! Lucky you :)

18 month old friends are the best, aren't they? isn't it so lovely that, from outside a window, the world looks warm & inviting---even when the weather isn't exactly balmy? i've been doing things to expedite spring here as well! i'll have to see if there is an exhibit like this in detroit!

I love those windows! So peaceful. It's also a really nice place to sit with a boy when the museum is not too crowded and noisy. Not that I would know...

Oh I so love the Museum of Natural History. It's the perfect little (or giant) sanctuary, isn't it?

Ruby is SUCH a cute name, and 18 months is the best age. Sounds like a perfect afternoon.

i love dinosaurs as well, there is just something so magnificent and mysterious about them. When you come to Utah there is a pretty cool Museum of Ancient Life you should check out. It's not as large as I am sure the American Natural History is, but it's a pretty cool place anyway.
