Street Serenade, Soho

Cello Solo, Soho, NYC
Photo by myself in Soho, around Prince and Greene Streets.

A talented cellist played Bach suites for passersby, Friday evening. The weather was finally nice enough to walk around without a heavy coat.


According to the Times, Saturday night, New York is observing Earth Hour.

Between 8:30 and 9:30pm, scores of major landmarks will be dimming their exterior lights. The list of participants includes the theater marquees on Broadway, the Empire State Building and all the major bridges out of Manhattan. Individuals are encouraged to turn off all lights and unplug devices as well.

I have to say, it's about time.

It lifts my spirits to know that so many other people all over the world feel the importance of this issue. Seventy-four countries are participating, with the target of 1 billion individuals.

The artist Shepard Fairey, who created the iconic Change poster of President Obama, created eye-catching images for the campaign.

Mark and I will be participating. I hope you'll join us!

I posted about Earth Hour too. The kids aren't going to be happy about me shutting the TV off, but I'm planning on playing a board game with them so that should make them happy. Have a great weekend!

It's lovely when the weather gets nicer and you get to wear the lighter jacket and perhaps no socks! With music on the street it gets really exciting!
