Positively 4th Street -

"Kate Visits the Village"
digital collage by Mick Mather
From the blurred and fuzzy background of a found photograph came a flood of memories. One of a trip two years ago, another of a friend who has moved away and yet a third memory of walking the best parts of Bleecker Street on ice cold mornings and afternoons. Happy hour hot dogs and a glass of wine at The Art Bar on 8th Avenue north of Jane come to mind as well as the liquor store and the little bodega clustered along that part of the walk near my room. Judging from the weather, if I were there right now, everything would be the same as it was then.

I hope it wasn't a hit and run scene as I can still se the trace of the tyres. Or are they footprints? Big boots?

You really need to keep your wits about you when crossing the street down there! :)

Me too! Plus, I spent quite a bit of time in that same area in the late 1960's when the world was a'buzz with other music in addition to that! :)
