Sunday in the Park

February 24, 2008

I smiled to myself as I neared the 90th St. entrance, “Thank God I’ve got another year here,” I thought, “I need to promise myself to utilize it more.” Walking through the park gives me such a sense of calm, joy, privilege and belonging, why wouldn’t I make a promise to myself to go more often.
Today, I walked paths I didn’t know about, saw secret spots with lovers cuddling on benches, sun drenched rocks occupied by someone with a book in hand, small clearings with bird watchers eagerly waiting for their favorite to come feed, I heard yells of German, French, English and Spanish as children rushed down snowy hills and parents watched on with glee. I don’t know if the pictures do it justice, I guess you have to be there, but I tried.
