What a wonderful day in New York City it was to take a walk through the Harlem Meer (dutch word for lake) and the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center, an art and nature visitor's hub, viewing the birdfest of life waddling across the frozen lake - slipping and sliding across the ice while scavenging for food!
As you enter Central Park through the Conservatory Gardens, I'm always awe struck by the intricate designs in the stately entrance gate.
The beautiful fountain sits quietly- without the spring time spraying water flowing freely with flowers blooming colors everywhere. Now, there is a beautiful peaceful calm, with simple delicate lines throughout the winter foliage.
The flowers are now skeletal structures- beautiful, strong, wild, with a royal presence all their own!
The park corridors were empty, void of sounds with the exception of hidden birds chirping.
And the loud yet peaceful sounds of the park echos throughout its noble paths.
Love when the geese display such a beautiful line up.
The standout white swan painstakingly takes each step slowly across the ice.
And is there anything that can rival this pure simplistic beauty of swans joined together?
Happy New Year and all the very best for peace, joy, happiness and the ability to find bliss in each and every day!
