Marta 365: Senor Pika

Somewhere I saw someone posting a picture a day from their life. I am camera-shy so don't expect to see any actual pictures of me. And I may not get around to posting every day, but I'd like to try to do this as much as I can, because I love my city and I like the idea of sharing it. Plus, I finally have a functioning phone for the moment which means a functioning camera.

So without further adieu:

I call this little fellow "Señor Pika." When I first moved into the neighborhood I was trying to explore my neighborhood and was hopelessly lost getting home. I had blisters, it was heat like you can only get in July in the Bronx, I had no internet at home and hadn't even found the garbage room and knew no one or where to go to relax - typically moving-in stress, I'm sure all college students have experienced it, but I was about reduced to tears. And I was lost and didn't even know how to explain where I lived to ask for directions. Then I saw Señor Pika smiling down at me with his absurdly bright yellow color, and I laughed.

Things got better almost immediately and I did learn my way around. Not just the neighborhood but the city and beyond; for a Southern girl I've taken to public transit and pedestrian adventuring remarkably well. But when I've had a particularly stressful day I walk by Señor Pika - down Kazimiroff Blvd past the botanical gardens, across the bridge and up Southern Blvd. It's a little out of my way but is a lovely walk, and is worth it to see my first real friend in New York.

love it
Good to know there's always someone to greet you, even though you can now zip around the city. Just hope Senor doesn't move or go into the other room.
