Oh delightful! That last young lady would be so thrilled to see how you placed her in such a magical field of flowers at the forest's edge. I'm finding myself hoping that she will have the opportunity to see her performance this way!

WOW...a sudden flashback of memories just flooded my mind Karen! We used to love to go to Fanneuil Hall and eat, watch the street artists, eat, walk, eat, shop, eat, gather with friends, eat, ride the horse and carriage, and oh, did I mention EAT? FINNEGAL A BAGEL USED to be there; they had the biggest and best bagels around! The smell of the peppers and sausage is a comforting and VERY New England aroma I will never forget. THANK YOU!!! Anita

Hi Karen,

I love to people watch too and it is so much fun seeing some of the street performers. I do not know how they can sit so still, for so long.
Thanks for sharing this fun post.
