Central Park: Sunday’s stunning explosion of autumn colors

A friend asked what site to see in New York City if she could only see one. Without hesitation I said Central Park.

Thinking about it later, I thought if an alien asked what site to see on Earth if he, she, or it could only see one. I might still say Central Park.

I’ve seen beautiful days, but none more so than Sunday, when Central Park exploded with autumn colors. Unfortunately I had only my crappy cell phone camera, but I like the pictures anyway. A nice bookend to when the explosion of spring in the park across the street from me prompted me to post pictures of it.

Here’s a tree quote, not that relevant to Central Park, but useful in life anyway.

For governing a country well
there is nothing better than moderation.

The mark of a moderate man
is freedom from his own ideas.
Tolerant like the sky,
all-pervading like sunlight,
firm like a mountain,
supple like a tree in the wind,
he has no destination in view
and makes use of anything
life happens to bring his way.

Nothing is impossible for him.
Because he has let go,
he can care for the people’s welfare
as a mother cares for her child.
