Last week the strawberry moon rose over D.C. while I was in town performing with the New York City Ballet. The bad news is that our performance that night got out a bit too late for me to see the moon rising on the horizon. Even worse, the next night when we DID get out earlier I didn’t have my camera with me – you’ll just have to believe me when I tell you the moon that night WAS a fabulous salmon shade and looked ginormous!)
So that you can see I tried, here I am trying to capture the strawberry moon…
And here it is framed by the leaves of a tree.
“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
With so much work on my plate this spring, there were almost no opportunities for outings with my camera. So I welcomed having a free afternoon today to walk over to the Conservatory Garden to see what’s blooming. Needless to say, it was a feast for my eyes and for my camera.
“Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it.”
“Time itself comes in drops.”
Spring comes without fail every year, yet I still find myself always amazed when the trees burst into flower and Central Park becomes a riot of colors.
Even though the skies were grey yesterday, here’s what I saw when I took my afternoon stroll in the park…
“Sooner or later comes a crisis in our affairs, and how we meet it determines our future happiness and success. Since the beginning of time, every form of life has been called upon to meet such crisis.”
“The human heart likes a little disorder in its geometry.”
