A Mini-Escape

Today a couple of us bloggers bailed out of a school candidates' forum to visit Green Brook Park and exhilarate for a few moments in signs of spring.

Besides a few hundred all-year-round Canada geese, we saw dozens of newly-arrived robins, some very showing-off Red-Winged Blackbirds flashing their red epaulets, and a few young deer.

It was a lovely afternoon and made us forget all the human troubles of the city.

Thanks to Mother Nature for a reminder that life goes on regardless of the machinations of politicians and others who would impose temporal concerns on us.

We are very fortunate to have two well-designed county parks that allow such escapes and we hope all will make time to enjoy both Green Brook Park and Cedar Brook Park as spring approaches.
