This past Friday E.B (seen in the photograph directly above) is a man who lives acrooss the courtyard came to visit my garden.
I guess he was so relaxed he forgot his phone which I took over to his building and he met me in the lobby. I initially came in contact with E.B. during #clapbecausewecare sessions which were something many New Yorkers participated in during the lockdowns that took place throughout the darkest evenings of the coronavirus pandemic.
One of the last sessions took place on 6-25-2021 and E.B. can be seen participating in that particular session in the next photo.
In any case, during the time of lockdowns and clap/cheeer sessions, E.B. purchased all three volumes of my Words In Our Beak hardcover book series.
It was wonderful to hear him say whenever he has had guests visit his NYC apartment he shows them my books, and then from his window he points to my garden to let his vistors know that it is the spot where my stories take place.
On another note, we have been trying to work out a time to meet together ever since E.B. took me to lunch (in November of 2020)....
... and at that time we promised each other he’d visit my garden.
I’m very thankful he could come by last night especially since he is leaving NYC for the summer but we hope to get together in the fall when he returns, and fyi, when I say E.B. has a bird's eye view of my garden, I mean it literally for his surname is Bird!
