Reunited once Again with the keyboard, my morning coffee and thoughts to ponder. It feels good to be back. Its been way too long. A special thank you goes out to a new acquaintance in my life, who has given me the inspiration.
So, what to say on this beautiful summer morning? The day after the Summer Solstice. The sun is shining, illuminating the lush green of the maple trees, the choir of birds sing with joy and the quietness of the morning is refreshing.
Wouldn't it be nice if the weather was like this all year round? But then again, would we appreciate it as much? Probably not.
I love the summer time in Buffalo. There is so much to do and we really pack "it" in within a short three months. There are several major festivals that happen starting in June with the Allentown Art Festival and Helenic Festival, July rolls in with the Taste of Buffalo and starting this year, the Italian Festival will be held in August. Live music can be seen and heard nearly every day of the week at some outdoor venue.
I ate at a new restaurant last night that I have wanted to try for quite awhile now. The BlackRock Kitchen, http://www.blackrockkitchenandbar.com, owned my Mark Goldman who also owns the Allen Street Hardware bar and restaurant , http://www.allenstreethardware.com/.
Tonight will be another new adventure as my friends and I head out to Tappo, another one of Rocco Termini's investments to bring the city back to life. Check out the write up in Buffalo Rising: http://www.buffalorising.com/2013/06/-tappo-restaurant-opened-to.html.
It feels good to put my fingers on the keyboard once again. Much has happened in my life over the last six to eight months that has distracted my writing. Sometimes when emotion is too high the words just don't come. Perhaps at some point I will share all of this with you my dedicated readers. And when I do, I want it to come from a more spiritual perspective than a physical perspective. I am still working through some of it.
Thank you my dear readers for being patient and faithful. I am off to enjoy my evening with dear friends.
With Love and Light,
