I had the privilege of selecting this month's theme, and I chose "What Would You Miss Most?" if you had to leave the city you usually post from.
I would definitely miss the Romi or Gypsy population here, for many reasons: their resourcefulness, their spontaneity, and their overall joie de vivre, despite many prejudices and hardships. I'm in Seattle now, and haven't seen a-one.
I've posted about them many times before, and you may remember this photo.
Today I'm posting several photos together, but hey, it's my meme and tomorrow is my birthday.
See other photos for this meme on City Daily Photo Theme Day.
NOTE: The other day I took one of those dumb quizzes everyone posts on Facebook. This one queried, "What were you in a former life?" Guess what I was: a gypsy!

No, didn't fly back to Serbia, but as you all know, we are all connected in cyberspace. The other day I received an email from a Serbian composer in NYC, who is trying to bring several monks from the Kovilj Monastery in Serbia to the US to sing their chants in Carnegie Hall.
If you click right here, you can read all about this project and, she hopes, donate something toward their journey.
Please have a look.

I get a big kick out of toy stores. I go in all the time, and today I was actually accompanied by a child, my grandson, who loves wind-up toys.
I bought him these four here and bought myself the sand mold in the shape of the Taj Mahal...you know I love India. I don't plan on making sand Taj Mahals, but I think it would do Jello nicely and maybe some puddings.....
