11-22-13 Unexpected

For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground,

And tell sad stories of the death of kings;

Shakespeare

kennedy-assassination

When I saw that the weekly photo challenge was unexpected, I had to believe that whether consciously or subconsciously Cheri Lucas Rowland over at WordPress HQ had been influenced by the date.  To my mind the events in Dallas 50 years ago were perhaps the most unexpected event at least since Pearl Harbor and probably longer. Some people had predicted a Japanese attack. The CIA warned about 9/11 but I don’t think Kennedy’s assassination was on any radar – well except for those who planned it.

I took a walk through Central Park recently. As I came over a rise what appeared before me?
