THE NATURAL MUSIC OF NEW YORK'S
SIDE COMMUNITY GARDEN
Tucked away in a quiet New York Upper West Side side street is an oasis,
a tiny park that lends itself to quiet contemplation as you catch the fading
rays of the sun.
Of course, there is official music presented there from time to time, classical
and Jazz concerts, the musical verses of a Shakespeare play. But most of the
time, sitting in the lush flower-bedecked garden, there is only silence,
interrupted from to time by the buzzing of a busy bumble-bee, the fluttering
of a pair of butterflies chasing each other, the tree-hopping of a finch or
sparrow, the swooshing sound of a squirrel on an insect-hunt.
Years ago I found this retreat to study musical scores or try to memorize a
Bach Cello Suite.I recently rediscovered this community garden as a quiet
refuge where I could sit and ponder after losing my dear wife Shirley after
a long and beautiful partnership.
Other people of all ages have also discovered this oasis and spend a little
time there reading, sunning themselves, studying their phones or pads, or
doing nothing, just enjoying the natural sounds of silence!
