There is a tangible energy change on the city streets. The sentiment of “I’m cranky, cold, and you’re in my way” that has been emanating, all winter long, from those I share the sidewalks with is gone. Now there’s a smile on everyone’s face, or at least a twinkle in their eye, and an overwhelming feeling of, “I’m just happy to be alive and outside!” You might think they put Paxil in the water. It’s amazing what some sunshine can do.
The city is nothing short of glorious. The weather sunny mid 70s. Everything is green, apart from the brilliant blue sky and the colorful flowers that are blooming everywhere.
Yesterday was the warmest day yet, anyone short of the undead wanted to spend as much time as possible outside. I took full advantage of my unconventional work schedule, complete with a picnic lunch and a leisurely walk through Central Park. It was a truly fantastic day. If you are sitting at a computer right now, don’t fret.
Pretend you’re walking with me through spring in Central Park!
You know it’s spring when water returns to this pond- don’t fall in!
Notice the sidewalk chalk? Not my handy work but I love it.
