I decide to search for beauty around me instead of bitching and moaning about the terrible MTA service in the Boogie-Down Bronx; and lo and behold I end up capturing unexpected beauty existing in the midst of the chaos, confusion and heaviness of my surroundings.

Who would believe that one could find such perfection at the corner of Waters Place and Eastchester Road!? This perfectly manicured lawn totally diverts my attention from the insufferable heat and humidity. Perfect beauty.

There is no shade at the next bus stop so I venture into the tiny wooded area behind it and look up at the pattern of trees against sky…so intricately woven by the Hands of Mother Nature.

Fascinating how the branches of these two trees reach out to intertwine with one another: Sisters bound in love.

Much later on; weary, hungry and very much out-of-sorts, I find myself at yet another bus stop with an unbelieveable forty minute wait for that final bus home. The magnificence of the sunset, however, soothes my jangled nerves and eases my body’s aches and pains.

Is there anything more spectacular than the show Mother Nature puts on each evening?

All I could say to this was WOW! What a show! Keeping me awed, entertained and not homicidal…

Who could experience anything other than peace upon beholding this sky?
The splendor of Nature washes away all impatience and bad temper…

And I rode home in peace.
