Sunshine in Central Park

We are enjoying the sunshine so much, especially after a long and dreary winter!

From this...


To THIS!




















I'm reminded of a quote from Rasselas by Samuel Johnson: "Of the blessings set before you make your choice, and be content. No man can taste the fruits of autumn while he is delighting his scent with the flowers of the spring: no man can, at the same time, fill his cup from the source and from the mouth of the Nile."

The colorful leaves of fall were so nice (especially after three falls in Florida that all felt like summer!) and the hot chocolate and warm soup and cozy blankets of winter were enjoyable... but now that the flowers of spring and fresh summer fruit are here, I will do my best to enjoy these things, too. Now if only we could get that cool breeze back...
