“Each day is a journey, and the journey itself home”
“Tiny Pond” was photographed in “The Botanical Garden”, a New York City community run garden on east 6th Street and Avenue C. We always visit this beautiful, luscious garden after we pick up our weekly C.S.A., or Community Supported Agriculture at the Sixth Street Community Center.
The Sixth Street Community Center was founded by neighbours who saw an abandoned building in the eighties and worked together to put it to right. It is now a community center that supports our East Village community. There are sliding scale yoga classes, an award winning C.S.A, a delightful Soul Cafe serving healthy food, and of course, really cool people.
I like to stop in the Botanical Garden on my way home with my lovely daughter, Miss Lo. She runs around smelling the flowers while I steal a few leaves of mint. Together we listen to the birds chirp, contemplate the koi pond, and watch adorable teens in love.
