On a Sunday in New York

Sunday morning in New York, a parade is about to happen. It seems in a city this large. That a parade could be usual daily fare.

I once lived for parades, their showy organization. The pagentry, the color traveled from town to town, only to be three or four times on the 4th of July. Parades are people celebrating and working together. Parades are a show of something that people can be when they want to make a good thing happen.

Oh how I love a parade . . . I need to remember that on a Sunday morning when I need to get to get to the airport.

I like a parade too, as long as they are not on my way.

Yes, Dsnake.
I'm home safe.

Hey Janus.
I agree. They are less fun when they're in the way. :)

Parades can be alittle scary actually. With all the chaos and volume of people, it can be a bit over whelmomg. I think it is nice to watch, and the atmosphere is usually a happy one, but I do not like to be blocked in whether it be from people or traffic. Sooooo, I stay safe and watch them periodically on TV.

Have a nice day! :)

Hi lucid!
The crush of the people can be a bit much. I know what you mean. I haven't been to a parade in years. I think maybe I saw too many when I was a kid.

I love the idea. . . the reality is less than the dream. :)
