Judy ~ since the Donald tickets failed to eventuate, I experienced The Gates through my heart ~ rather than through my eyes ~ a different sort of thrill!

the energy of one man ~ the focus of his spirit! the generosity of his creativity ~ the delightful wonder of Christo.....

am sure the park itself is buzzing ~ as one grass blade said to another, trees to trees, Winter air to Winter air ~ all a buzz with Christo talk...

I know! I thought that was funny and I bet Christo and Jeanne-Claude enjoyed it if they saw it too. Wink

Did you see the other "homages" I posted?
