Zone Out

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.
