The parkway

by bethanybump

When I was young, maybe 12, I would walk around the pond in Schenectady’s Central Park repeating Psalm 23 with my father. Green pastures, quiet waters, my cup overfloweth, etc. Ten years and a lack of religious overtones later, I found myself wandering past the pond and into the park’s noted Rose Garden with my sister and nephew. I never knew it existed all these years.

The last few weeks have been busy. I’ve been writing a lot and taking photographs, sleeping too little and making meager attempts to organize my life. My walk through the Rose Garden was rejuvenating.
