So winter is officially over, although it still doesn't feel like it here in NYC. But spring will be here soon enough I know. But I'd like to dedicate this one last hurrah for the terrifyingly cold bubble we live in here over in this part. We will miss you when you are gone winter. Not. But still.
I didn't make it out to Central Park as much as I would have liked to this winter, but we were able to get a couple of hours of strolling the icy pathways here when my mom was in town in January. We lasted a good two hours until our feet literally couldn't be felt any longer! Central Park is literally a winter wonderland. The ice skating rink is like straight off a Christmas card. The branches are bare but look and feel totally majestic. As if they own the icy air that surrounds them, and everything else. Watching over us as we trek through the slushy crevices of its kingdom. Making sure we don't slip. Babies in parkas holding tightly onto the hands of their parents. Strollers covered in plastic to keep out the cold. The pathways more barren than usual but still lively with speckles of people taking advantage of the space. The NYC landscape of towering buildings and skyscrapers looks far more intense without the bushy leaves that usually keep Central Park cushioned in the summertime. A reminder, even in the more peaceful center of this chilled up oasis that the hustle and bustle of the city never stops.
Despite all the times we've complained about how much we hate you winter. How much we abhor you and wish to whisk you away with a magic stick hundreds and thousands of times, we'll never forget the moments that stopped and felt quite magical because of you. They cancel everything else out.
