I don’t pretend to be a tour guide or advocate for any particular destination.  Thus, I have no idea who the artist of this particular sculpture is or even what it depicts.  Guess that leaves more for the imagination.  I see two young, innocent, angelic cupids resting and hiding in the leaves.  They’re ready to give their blessings as you walk by.  Maybe you’ll even stop and rest, sit on a bench nearby.  They’ll pierce you in the heart.  Your love of life and other will deepen.  What do you see?

Two posts in a row of a music theme.  Guess you can tell I like music.  Here, we were walking around in Copenhagen, exploring the various sights when I began to hear music.  I moved towards it, opened up the church door and much to my delight a beautiful little orchestra was in the middle of its rehearsal.  What an impressive venue to go along with precision in music.  I could have stayed all night, but we went back to our wandering.

Clean, elegant Copenhagen, Denmark.  Friendly too.  We ended up staying in a hotel above this iconic canal with its colorful shops.  During the day it’s buzzing with people, street musicians, expensive lunches.  Also an easy place from which to explore the rest of the city, so easy to walk around in.  Here, the crowds are starting to wind down as the sun begins it descent; the colorful shops soaking in their last bits of light for the day.  I, in my hotel room happily watching the scene and getting ready to explore the city at night.

Copenhagen is clean and elegant and easy to get around in.  On this bright sunny morning I went wandering off by myself, taking in the ambiance and shooting photos.  I love wandering, going where my legs take me, the catching something out of the corner of my eye and following that.  Here, I spotted the King, Frederik VII, in front of the palace.  I wonder how easy it was to wander in his day.  There were no streets made for cars.  Was I standing where the horses used to graze?  Where he addressed his court?  Ah, the imaginings of another time.

Not being from Europe I find these little enclaves quite charming.  I know they aren’t around for their charm.  It’s just that they’re so hard to find here in the States when needed.  Maybe this kind of phenomena belongs to the “absence makes the heart grow fonder” line.  Charming, right?  Well, certainly the utmost in foresight and practicality.  Now that seems British.  Yet it was the French who popularized them first.  This one just happens to be in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Have you ever used a street-side pissoir?
