The steps of the New York Public Library. I was walking to the subway after a very emotional couples therapy session where I learned my still-husband was moving into the same building as this woman he had been seeing. I wasn't just sad, I felt hopeless. I turned the corner to see the steps of the NYPL lit up with what seemed like hundreds of little stars and the facade glowing a warm and welcoming red. I was flooded with the same feeling of wonder and excitement you have when you are still young enough to believe in magic.

Libraries have an exquisite magic all their own, don't they? Especially this one, and especially in this photo, all lit up. I'm so glad the magic was there for you when you needed it. You are a strong soul, to see such beauty even through your pain. Kudos & blessings.
