Just back from a great trip to New York, several posts worth here I think, but I'm going to start with a story of Central Park. Looking at the map I discovered there was an area named strawberry Fields with a memorial to John Lennon.
it was clearly a place of pilgrimage so we sat for a while and watched as people came and went.
There were people of all ages and nationalities, families, individuals, groups, all coming to pay their respects.
Then there was the music - all Beatles / Lennon songs of course
and the garland makers who worked diligently until they at finished their task,
Then sat and reflected together for a while,
before laying their garland carefully
and making the final adjustments
until it was perfect
