⪧ We left our life in New York City to make a new one in Provence ⪦

Rollers.



Magic New York City trice. It actually happens every weekend in Central Park, Saturdays and Sundays on Skate Circle. But if you haven't taken it in, it is well worth it. You will stand there gleaming from ear to ear. They jive, they boogie and bob, they do the two-step, they shimmy. They = a solid representation of every type of human who could possibly abide in this country/city - on roller-skates.

















And he was (they were) there to witness it all.

If I was there, I would be the girl in the green skirt & striped socks. In fact I have those socks - but in rainbow. I also have a similar skirt, but its pink with a rainbow belt. Don't be jealous. You can always borrow them.

I would be the one falling on his/her face. Never could roller skate! Always envied those who could so there would be a lot of envy going on if I were there watching them skate while remaining upright!

Just noticed the badly misplaced modifier. I meant that I would envy them being able to skate while "they" remained upright. I would hope that "I" would be able to remain upright without roller skates on my feet!

That looks like a great day out! Lucky new Yorkers :) I've been addicted to roller skates since Xanadu...
