I am so happy to live across the street from our city’s largest park.. it is a nature reserve, in effect. There are several colorful varieties of ducks, Canada Geese, gulls, crows, squirrels, discarded green turtles, eagles, racoons, peacocks, and herons. The only place inside the park where there are fences is around the Children’s Farm. There is no perimeter fencing whatsoever and so the various paths and bark trails invite you to come in and enjoy.
It is one of my favorite places in the city and in my neighborhood… this is the view out my window across the street to a small lake, and it makes me want to FREEZE the moment, and it encourages me to BE STILL and REFLECT.
What encourages you to take a time out and REFLECT?
