Washington Square Park (Its Beauty is transparent; Characters and artists abound)

Mid-November is the time NYC gets saturated with color. As I take some of my favorite walks in the city I cannot help but admire the foliage. Just this saturday I was in Washington Square Park. A perfectly blue sky overhead and an energy of inspiration filled the four corners of the park that day. Colin Huggins was playing his baby grand. He’s known as the “Crazy Piano Guy”. Why crazy, I do not know. He’s been dragging his piano to the city’s parks for years while knocking out great tunes. Everyone just loved it. ¬†Walking past him was a pleasure.

The street performers were doing what they always do, acrobatic maneuvers with some side jokes thrown in. Here’s a fun move. My yoga teacher wouldn’t mind if I finally learned this one myself.

Now these guys are a riot. Any film students doing a Hitchock remake? Well if you need birds these guys can help.

Just looking at the skyline with the beauty of the trees below, relaxes and invigorates me at the same time. Autumn in New York is truly special and I’m beginning to think that Spring in Paris cannot compare.
