|Chess and Checkers House, Central Park|
At first I had settled in on the pretty hill by the bridge, then by the benches on the east side of the ball field; ideally I wanted to face the morning sun. After a while there was just too much going on. A group of dog owners started congregating there after their walks, and it also turned into tourist central. From then on, I kind of just moved around and went with the flow and at times I just practiced at home or at the river later during the day if my schedule allowed it or at night. It did not matter. I realized there was no perfect spot.
