The true New Yorker secretly believes that
people living anywhere else
have to be, in some sense, kidding.
This Powerful Goddess has a thing for moody portraits, yet she has that joie de vivre and a smile more sunshiny than her halo of golden hair. As a European, she had always dreamed of living like a local in New York City. What to do with the minor glitch of having a devoted husband whose career didn’t allow for an extended sabbatical?
“I want to live in New York for awhile,” she blurts over their dinner for two last year.
“Say that again?” her husband couldn’t be sure he heard her right.
But he did. And knowing that this has been a big item on her bucket list, he helped figure out how to make her Manhattan adventure possible: living on her own this side of the Atlantic, taking classes to learn new skills, and expanding her world with new friends along the way.
Now that she’s back home celebrating the next chapter of her fabulous life, these portraits count among her favorite souvenirs of how well she welcomed her golden age, thanks to her great courage and her husband’s grand gesture of love and generosity.
The happiest of birthdays to you, Powerful Goddess! You must tell your darling man he is a gem truly worth his weight in gold while I practice saying to my husband “I’d like to live in Europe for awhile.” 😉
