Giant red ornaments. 6th Avenue. Midtown holiday decorations. New York City 

Every single year, my love of New York City holiday decorations is hard to hide. I eagerly wait for December because I know that Rockefeller Center and surrounding areas of midtown Manhattan will be dolled up in their holiday finest. Tree branches are entirely ensconced with holiday lights, giant ornaments sit stop golden fountains and even street food vendors go out of their way to accessorize their food stands with holiday decorations.

This display close to Rockefeller Center is one of my favorites. It’s a New York City holiday decoration extravaganza. It sits across from Radio City Music Hall (home of the Rockettes and Radio City Christmas Spectacular) on 6th Avenue and is absolutely gorgeous at night. Giant red ornament balls sit on a fountain which is surrounded by trees ensconced in holiday lights.

Happy holidays everyone!!

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and angels at night. Midtown, New York City.

Rockefeller Center during this time of year is a feast for the eyes.The warmth of the lights prompts all faces to turn upwards as if each light is its own burning star in the sky: each face soaking in the interstellar glow of the night.

I have been pondering a few things lately regarding consumption and creation of art in its many forms. I wrote some of my thoughts out at my twitter but I suppose I will post the initial thoughts here as well:

I wonder if others need emotional attachment to art/writing/music as much as I do/crave.

The tug on the heart strings is what motivates my own art/writing. It’s hard for me to relate to art that is devoid of that tug: of ache.

Art devoid of it in any medium is flat, lifeless: as if no one has breathed life and memory into it. It rests in its own coffin.

 There are some pieces of music, writing and different art mediums that are so sacred to me that I get an overwhelming feeling that trying to convey my love for all of it is always inadequate in some way.

 I get a rush of adrenaline when I try to do such a task as if I am translating an ancient unearthed language.

It’s a feeling I want to put my arms around and embrace tightly…
