A Morsel

I have posted a miniscule amount of my writings since starting this blog and am a little embarassed by that. Nevertheless, here, for your enjoyment, is a small morsel of a thought I wrote down yesterday on my commute. It's not much, but more than nothing.

"The architecture was reminiscent of the brownstones of New York. But the doorways were too flat. The exterior of the building did not embrace you as you climbed up the steps. It did not invite you into its history or whisper its unique personality into your senses. It was a cost-efficient clone, an effort at nostalgia that fell flat, as flat as its doorways."

Got any thoughts? Share.

I love that picture of you. And I've never seen the movie you just played a clip from. But now I'm thinkin' that Mama P is gonna get her some Coyote Ugly. (As long as it doesn't cost 250.00)

The imagery is very nice... I feel disappointed at the flatness and want to be pulled in by the NY image.

Thanks for the comment on my blog!
