Had a really lovely walk today in Central Park, twice around the reservoir. It was a bit muddy and still rather cool and windy, so the trail wasn't too crowded. The view of the skyline when looking south from the trail's topmost curve is truly amazing. All too often lately, I've found that my disgust for the carelessness, rudeness and general lack of consideration exhibited by other people has led me to make every effort to shut out my immediate surroundings, thereby missing out on a lot. But, I'm not sure how much more of the aggravation I can stomach.
