“I’m sick and tired of hearing things/From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites/All I want is the truth…” (”Gimme Some Truth” by John Lennon)  Truth from all world leaders can be just as difficult to imagine as peace!  I visited Central Park following a nine inch snowfall.  The term “snow job” refers to “a strong effort to make someone believe something by saying things that are not true or sincere.”  When listening to political leaders, it is tempting to become either totally cynical or completely naive.  I try to be somewhere in the middle.  I follow a simple, but wise, proverb: “It is too much to believe everything, and it is too little to believe nothing.”  (Photo taken on February 10, 2017)

“Mary had a little lamb/Its fleece was white as snow…” (Nursery Rhyme)  Snowfall often causes closures.  But, it had the opposite effect in Central Park.  Usually closed for the winter, the Sheep Meadow was open.  The footprints are evidence that the young, and the young at heart, had been enjoying the winter wonderland:)  (Photo taken on February 10, 2017)
