Space is at a premium in the city. Houses give way to condos, parking spaces are not taken for granted, and yards are exchanged for public parks. I appreciate the effort made to make shared spaces beautiful. It serves as a reminder that life is about more than what we own or acquire. I like gifts, getting and giving. But I think I have more vivid memories of experiences I shared with loved ones than favorite toys.
Life with less can be just as meaningful. So much of what we find beautiful is meant for many to enjoy, and about the only way to take it home is to take a picture (or painting).
The northwest corner of the park has a nicely landscaped green space that is in contrast to being next to “Vue at Lake Eola,” a 35-story sought-after residence in downtown.
