Play's the Thing
This playground is caught in a desolation mode. A few days before Christmas, up on Eastern Promenade, no snow, no kids, no spirit. Just a cold biting wind, that makes 10 minutes outside without a windbreak seem like a lifetime. However, there is a fabulous view up there, if you can stand it, even on a winter morning. It seems like kids today need elaborate mazes, castles or some sort of theme to tantalize them on the playground at schools and neighborhoods, that is if you can pull the away from the Xboxes and iPhones. For me, give me a chained swing, monkey bars and a teeter totter and I was a happy kid. Really, my wants still are few, my life style simple, and my aim is true. At least, I like to think so.
