“Beauty is not caused. It is.” -Emily Dickinson


“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.”  -Edgar Allen Poe

I went for a long walk in Harlem one evening, and ended up here in Central Park. This is one of my favorite hang out spots in the park. There’s something about water that is very soothing to me. I’m an Aries,  which is a fire sign. Perhaps my love of water keeps me in balance? I don’t know what it is. I just know that I can sit and just watch the water all day and feel at ease.

This was a beautiful day in Brooklyn. I went to Prospect Park for the first time, and was pleasantly surprised. It’s beautiful, and so peaceful. I made a habit of going here to walk around the lake. It’s a long train ride from Harlem, but the trip is worth it.

I was enjoying a beautiful day at Brighton Beach in Brooklyn. Every time I spend a day here, I end up being entertained all day long. There’s always plenty of laughter, fun, music, and relaxation. And I can’t forget about the wine!

This was taken in Long Beach, while I still lived in Los Angeles. I enjoyed coming here during the week when the beach was pretty empty. I would always spend time, pretty much  in this same spot. I could stay here for hours, watching the water, and listening to the waves. This photo brings back a lot of good memories.

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.” -John Keats
