"From a distance...


"Life is like a landscape.
You live in the midst of it,
but can describe it only from a distance."

-Charles Lindbergh



"Philly From a Distance"
Belmont Plateau
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


From a distance, I love the beauty of the name "Philadelphia".  But truth is, in the heart of it...we are "Philly".






Here's where I "link up" today.

Next Tuesday's Song-ography title suggestion is "Shut Up and Dance" by Walk the Moon.
Come back and link up!  (blog, Instagram, Flickr photos welcome).

    Will be coming up that way to visit family in Ambler soon. Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to go to the city. It's been a long time.
