‘A Coney Island kinda girl’

” … I have found myself sitting on the boardwalk or walking barefoot on the wet sand, where the waves break on the shore line, and poetry just ran through my veins. The fluidity from with which the thoughts and language would run through me felt like an intravenous drip of uncut magic. I’ve never really tried to decipher the mystery of the sand at Coney Island. Instead, I’ve accepted it and embraced it as part of the reason why I’ll always be a Coney Island kinda girl.” - Nikki-Jo Grossman, Coney Island Examiner.

After the rain

I love the public bath called "Unteren Letten" where you can jump into the river Limmat. I met with Michael, we had a swim and went for the river bar to sip some beers and suddenly, there was a heavy summer rain which lasted just minutes. The evening light after the rain mixed with the falling night and it looked just gorgeous.
