I See Hearts

Images of hearts abound around New York City. Something special? Or simply street art?

Diana Aydin sees hearts all over New York City.

I have a bit of a dilemma. You see, I’ve been seeing hearts, everywhere I go in New York City.

It all started a week ago on Friday evening.

I met up with a friend for dinner and we were walking through Chelsea when we spotted chalk hearts and the word “love” floating up the brick facade of a building.

It was so lovely that I just had to stop and snap a photo.

The next morning, I was walking to SoHo when I spotted messages and doodles on the sidewalk–“Jesus Loves You” and more hearts.

A few hours later, I stumbled across chalk hearts, this time on a building on Fifth Avenue near Union Square.

Was God trying to tell me something? Or was someone going around the entire city scribbling chalk hearts and love notes?

Sunday came, though, and I didn’t see any little signs of love. Must’ve been a fluke, I thought.

At church that day, I poured out my own heart to God, the chalk drawings still on my mind. Afterwards, I walked around my neighborhood, stopped to pick up some groceries and headed home.

Hearts in a doorThat’s when I saw something unusual peeking out from the glass door of a store.

Three faded red hearts. It appeared to be an old Valentine’s Day decoration, one that had gotten stuck at the bottom of the door.

The romantic in me wants to believe that all this means something special is headed my way.

The skeptic says the hearts are just charming street art, nothing else.

What do you think? Just a coincidence or something more wondrous?
