Changing seasons

March 20th marked the first day of Spring and with thoughts of sunnier days and leaves on trees I have been inspired to “bloom” myself a little this Spring.  As the seasons are in a transitional phase, I too find myself in a transition.  After 3 years of working at a busy New York City Investment Bank, I have decided to move on from the financial industry and create a new and personally more fulfilling path.  Where this all leads me to, I have no idea, but at the end of the day I want to be doing things that I love and inspire me. 

I am very fortunate to live in New York City overlooking the amazingly beautiful Washington Square Park.  I call it my backyard, and love all of the sounds, smells and energy it creates.  One of the most interesting parts I find of the view is the constant changing of the trees.  Originally from Southern California seasons are something I never experienced, so when I look out my windows now I feel like I’m watching a science experiment.  I thought it would be really cool to document this experiment and have weekly photographs of the park and its seasonal transitions.  So here’s a couple of pictures of the park today: 

Predominately bare, however there are a few green leaves trying to poke through as if they we’re screaming “don’t worry New Yorkers, spring is coming!” 

So as corny as it is, I feel like these trees are kind of a metaphor for this whole experience.  It’s new, budding and can’t wait to grow.

    I’m similarly optimistic when looking onto Grant Park. I bet April holds green things and vitamin D for both of us.
