Sally at Smiling Sally is hosting Blue Monday. Please visit visit her for more Blue Monday posts.
On one of my recent trips to New York I came across these ceramic tiles that were displayed on a fence near Greenwich Village.
This monument, Tiles For America, is on the corner of 11th Street and 7th Avenue and you can read more about it by clicking here.
This one was especially moving to me. I remember where I was that day as I’m sure most of you do. While in New York City, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would have been like to have been there the day this horrible event occurred. Can you imagine what it must have felt like? I remember the fear that I felt, and I was a long way from NYC!
I tried to explain to Pat from Milli Fiori Favoriti where this memorial was, and she had not heard about it, or either I didn’t do too great of a job of explaining it! So, Pat, now you know. It was not far at all from where we walked that day!
The tiles were created by people from all around the world and all walks of life…children, seniors, churches, etc. To find a studio near you click here.
If you are ever in New York City, please try to see this memorial! It was a very moving experience for me!
