Madison Square Park, 8:00 PM
New York City
An evening walk in New York City to see the Flatiron Building led us to Madison Square Park. We decided to take a break and sit on one of the many benches.
The park was bustling with people. Everyone was taking advantage of the beautiful evening with a treat from the Shake Shack. Since the line-up was too long, we abstained to what would have been a memorable ice cream sundae.
In the midst of the crowds, sat a young man who was completely oblivious to his surroundings. I watched him in the same pose for a lengthy period of time and wondered what he was doing. Was it some sort of meditation or was he was getting prepared for some yoga? I admired the fellow’s trust in his surroundings and how he could zone out whatever was happening around him.
