Central Park in Snow

One morning, just a few days into my vacation, I woke up and decided that this was my day to walk up through Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum. What I didn't know, leaving my friend Larry's apartment, was that it had snowed the night before and there was a soft blanket of white in Central Park.

I walked through the park with a huge grin on my cold and slightly numbed face, following my breath as it lead the way. I took pictures and watched kids trying out their skills on the ice rink. I walked past monuments and bronze sculptures with snow at their feet, past quiet fountains and the pond, covered in ice and snow with canoes resting on the shore of the boathouse. Quiet. Magical.

I love New York.






The color of springtime
is in the flowers,
the color of winter
is in the imagination.

If you can ...
bundle up and take a walk.
Enjoy the season.

Feel the cool air on your cheeks
and see the leafless trees as sculptures.
