On a cold morning at the duck pond on E Ridgewood Ave. It was stunning looking at all things frozen in time except for people doing their walks with their pets or by themselves.With the sun shining brightly it cast a blue on the snowed in lake and gave it an ethereal look.
Going through some tough time and choices in life. I was reminded of the song from frozen. I am not someone who breaks down quickly. Once upon a time I was the most sensitive girl you would have ever met. But with passing of years( a nicer way of saying I am aging 🙂 … ) challenges have made me stronger and give me the “Do not care” attitude to life”
Here are a few lines from the frozen song “LET IT GO.. “that came to my mind…
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back
The past is in the past
Let it go, let it go
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand in the light of day
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway
With the right amount of snowfall the landscape looked so pretty with old man winter making a return. Another major storm is expected this Tuesday with blizzard like conditions which could result in snow dumps of at least 18 to 25 inches !!!
Just when we thought it was going to be springtime soon, old man winter made a surprise return. With all the advances made in science and technology this is one area which is still cloudy . But the day may not be far off when humans will “play God” with the weather.
Can you spot the star ?? My first try at macro photography. All excited.Could not stop myself from posting this picture 🙂
Located right outside a large park in the center of town in East Ridgewood-Van Neste Square is this cute sculpture of a buy with ice cream cone and a puppy. This park is the hangout spot for most teens and the town hosts most of the town events at this park. Today the park was covered in snow and looked very pretty.
“The 12 acres surrounding the stable are magnificent,” a pamphlet from the Parks & Recreation Department said, describing the area to have “the charm of yesterday, ours to enjoy in an urban community.”

I had an amazing walk around this place early sunday morning. The serene setting gives ample opportunity for the residents to relax and enjoy nature.
