Magic on the Streets Tonight

I love New York.

Today I was walking home after work and I saw a woman approaching wrapped in her coat, her backpack straps trailing in the air about her.  “Hm,” I thought, “her coat is blowing so, it looks like she has wings.”

And then she passed, and I saw she was in fact wearing sheer black butterfly wings.  Who knows what event demanded them; perhaps she was simply in a singularly butterflyish mood.

I love New York 🙂

  1. Sounds like something out of a De Lint Novel. 🙂

    Or a reborn Winged Hussar? I miss NYC. Not a place I would live in, I think London is the city for me, but you can’t beat a wild night in New York City. 😀

    What a great image! Both the photograph and seeing the woman wearing fairy wings.
