Shift

I noticed a shift in the city today. My first visit to NYC was thrilling, scary, and overwhelming. The second time I fell in love with the teeming Life and the intense diverse culture, but was off balance due to a powerful impulse to see/do it all. Today the city flowed through me, and I was contentedly calm in creative chaos. We started out at the Gug.

For some reason the Men In Black movie chase scene up that spiral ramp fit perfectly with the water and poly tube art installation. Enid was the perfect intelligent and playful companion for the art we strolled here, as with the entire day we unfolded together.

We walked most of the length of Central Park, and a highlight was the explosion of color in the Shakespeare Garden. We paused at Belvedere Castle to enjoy a serene view of the tumult all around the park.

We ended at Times Square as dusk settled and the mood of this delightful beast shifted to Night.

A policewoman was bonding with her newly assigned horse and acclimating it to become a soothing presence amid all the stimulation and excitement.

A silent moon slipped out from behind a skyscraper over the din, reminding us of green grass between our toes in dreams of other times and places.
