"Head of Parks & Recreation"

Today I loosened up with a fun piece - and continuing on with my series ATL to NYC & Back, we left the High Line, made our way through the chaos of a parade and headed to Madison Square Park for some peace. I love that park. It's filled with happy dogs and a great people-watching stop. I had read about this new installation, commissioned for Madison Square Park, by the Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa titled 'Echo' - in person, it's just delightful.

Karen, what a nice integration of reality and whimsy. I am often attracted to scenes like this that seem rather surreal in nature. It sounds like you are having a wonderful journey!
Enjoy, Eileen

Not only is the title PERFECT! but you really captured just how bizarre that sculpture is in that park! So unexpected and awe inspiring, and yet folks just sit next to it, like it is supposed to be there!
