Exploring Central Park

Funny, we go to one of the biggest, bustling cities in the world to hang out in the parks! I guess that’s what I love: civilization, but never being too far from the wonder of God’s nature.

While I stand back to admire the work of people who have designed and built these amazing structures in our cities, we need God’s creation to bring balance to our lives.

There are also gardens and fountains where you can enjoy the aesthetics of well-kept gardens with not a flower out of place.

    Dear God, dear Carmen, with my trip to Greece, I forgot this post, what horror! A post in which you look absolutely wonderful with your white camisole and the set in black and white. I love the dress (I would love to see it without your capris underneath it), with perhaps some subtle garment that would avoid absolute transparency. The design of the sweater dress with the long leotard is a real treat, and so is the delicate fabric. The game of the look with the red touches is so yours, so beautiful, so Carmen … I love this look and you, always always, absolutely precious!

      Very nice of you to take time to comment on posts you missed while you were in Greece. I’m happy for you that you could enjoy a vacation there, a place I would love to visit someday. Ever since I was 12 years old I dreamed of Greece. My favourite movie was The Moonspinners with Hayley Mills. It made a lasting impression on me. I have the DVD and have watched it many times. It takes place on the island of Crete.

    I went to NY once, and I also went to Central Park. I did not see the beautiful gardens though. Sorry I missed that. Gorgeous outfit!
