A few days ago I was in Riverside Park and down by the river looking for spring. I didn’t find it but I did find these.

“One swallow does not make a summer,
neither does one fine day;
similarly one day or brief time of happiness does not make a person entirely happy.”
It was a beautiful summer day. True it is only April but I don’t know what else you could call a sunny day with temps in the mid/high 80′s. So as the day’s work ended I headed down to South Ferry and Battery Park.
“Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself”
So, spring arrived today. Lovely, warm and sunny. I am down to 6 pictures to represent the day…3 of which are interiors, 2 are in shade and 1 is full of brightness. H’mm.
Oh well, let’s cut it down to…well let’s see which two Abigail picks…
“In a literature class in Dublin some years back, students were given an assignment to write a short story involving all the important literary ingredients — Nobility, Emotion, Sex, Religion and Mystery. The winner was:”My God!’ cried the Duchess. ‘I’m pregnant. Who did it?” – Unknown
Ah yes, it is the little things that make a difference is it not?
“The spring has sprung, the grass is rizz.
I wonder where them birdies is?”

Yesterday evening on my way to The Astor Center for: The Home Baker’s Meet Up and Grain-to-Glass Pop–Up Bar, (put together by GrowNYC) I decided to walk down to 72nd from the apartment and then hop the subway. Nothing too special along the river. Just a typical early May day
“If I had my life to live over, I would start barefooted a little earlier in the spring and stay that way a little later in the fall. I would play hooky more. I would shoot more paper wads at my teachers. I would have more dogs. I would keep later hours. I’d have more sweethearts. I would fish more. I would go to more circuses. I would go to more dances. I would ride on more merry-go-rounds. I would be carefree as long as I could, or at least until I got some care- instead of having my cares in advance.”
Talk about starting barefoot a little earlier in the spring. March 7 seems early to me but I hope this is the start of Pop Up Piano 2012!
So many people were out on the river today. Mom’s/Dad’s jogging their babies, people jogging their dogs, couples looking new/old and enraptured, groups of friends walking, many people gathered around the hawk’s nest, lots of people at the Boat Basin working on their boats, and a lot of people playing their instruments. I have pictures of all of them but this young guy was the most interesting to me because of his focus He was writing a song and nothing was going to interrupt him.
Warmth! While it was not sunny – today was the second warm day in a row! I had an appointment downtown and so decided to walk from home to 42nd Street and then take the x-town bus. These next thumbnails detail my walk in approximately 10 block increments…Remember that a click on the image will give you the full size shot!
