After lunch today, I spent some time in the garden again. There were people lounging around enjoying the humid day, waiting for the rain. Some had books to read, others just sat in a daze.
Its very easy to enter this garden and forget that you are in New York. There are so many birds singing and chirping that you temporarily tune out all of the busy life that is here. Giant bumblebees buzz past you slowly, fat with a full days supply of nectar and pollen.
You hear the clank of the iron gate behind you and remember that at some point you have to go home to make dinner. Just one more minute.
