Valentine's Day 2020


My visiting Cupid figurine featured in the image atop this entry (where he is standing amongst succulents that grow within my indoor garden) joins me in saying Happy Valentine's Day from my place to your place.

He has been coming to my place annually for a number of years now, therefore, you may recognize his face from prior entries here on Blogger or from an on line HT article that I wrote for in bygone years.
 Ever since the time of the aforementioned publication, this little guy still loves to spend time in the midst of my cacti, as evidenced in a recent photo (seen directly below which is also included in my recent entry re appreciating houseplants), and was taken by my Saturday morning walking partner, CF.

She is someone whom I've mentioned in prior entries when discussing our walks in Riverside ParkCentral Park and Prospect Park.

Our most recent walk (February 2nd 2020) was to Prospect Park in order for CF to pay homage to her dearly departed friend, Claudia Ferrer.

Why Prospect Park?

Prospect Park is where trees have been planted to preserve Claudia's memory and legacy.

Readers of this blog may recall that CF and I visited "Claudia's trees" this past October during one of our Saturday walks. We returned this past February 2nd in order for CF to plant flowers (seen in the next set of pictures) as a means of commemorating the second anniversary of Claudia's death.

On another note: In addition to CF taking photos of Cupid standing in my succulent garden, CF took a photograph (seen directly below) of other figurines who were spending their time readng volume two of my book series, Words In Our Beak.

As many of you know, Words In Our Beak is a three volume book series whose goal goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden (mine) in New York City, the story is told in the voice of Cam, a female Northern cardinal, who visits it. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective.

The books include hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.

This is a photo of my three volume book series, "Words In Our Beak." Information re the books is another one of my blog  posts @

CF continues to be one of the biggest moral supporters of this three volume book endeavor, as well as of my book project, Imperfect Strangerswhich seeks to raise awareness about living with Neurofibromatosis.

"Imperfect Strangers":


I realize that I've digressed a bit from speaking about Valentine's day, dear reader, so please allow Cupid (who is striking another pose in the picture below), as well as yours truly, to once again say Happy Valentine's Day from my place to your place.
