Beautiful day in Central Park, March 23, 2012

Mid-seventies, cool breeze, slightly overcast, and just enough humidity to make those masochistic mad bikers and joggers sweat furiously - just a perfect day in Central Park. Trees are in bloom, the elm archways are intact, and the sheep meadow and other major fields are still protected and fenced off, building their strength for the summer season.

Wandering around it was easy to put my mind into that of a tourist, thinking what an amazing place the park is in the middle of such a massively intense urban center. My mind did not need to wander far to coalesce with others, as tourists from how many countries, 20 or 30 or 40 or 50, who knows, wandered around as well. All were snapping photos and looking both baffled and content. Is this New York City?

With major fields still getting ready for summer, the major rock formations were the gathering places for those not inclined to sit on benches. I joined others on a large multi-faceted rock with room for my own space, read a book at times, and at other times just observed the scene and listened to the different accents and languages, from deep South U.S. to Eastern Europe, China, and Brazil.

Call it occupy Central Park, a place of world peace, today, March 23, 2012.
