Wandering around the parks near where I live is a favourite pass time of mine. This pass time is now under attack, as New York State will close many parks this year, and curb spending on a lot of other amenities at these parks. For lack of more eloquent words, this sucks big time. I wonder how much money it costs to keep some of these open, and whether they really will save that much. These parks were like a good friend to me, allowing me to chill and have fun, and cheering me up when I was sad. I haven't been following the discussions really, but variousnews and blog sources have hinted at the notion that it's really more an issue of budget mismanagement and disorganization. I lean towards this thought process more, given the current grade of politicians in office today. But on a hopeful note, they MAY open at some point again, so it's not forever.
This picture is a result of my wandering around one these parks - The Caumsett State Park. I had posted a picture before about the stuff people leave behind - continuing that thought process, this above is a shoe. The left shoe, to be exact. Or - a 'keds' to be even more exact. Also, the shoe is near a well-like structure, with a hole on the top, but a very shallow bottom, and the bottom is cemented off. Letting my imagination run wild, I concocted a million theories about how the shoe got there....care to share some of yours?
