In Massachusetts I found these places in my own yard and in nearby woods. In Texas, this spot was a path alongside the road. In Manhattan, I was shocked to find that space in The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. It has taken two years, but I have finally found a magical place in Long Island too - The Nassau County Museum of Art Sculpture Park.

Oh and then there's the art. The sculptures. You would think that I'd have a better appreciation of contemporary art after working at the CCS Museum at Bard during college. But I don't really. I didn't care for installations that included feces in cans (true story) then and turtle people with backwards heads don't do it for me now. I can say that I did like a few and some were certainly very interesting. But Nate loved each and every one.

We had the best time and plan to go back soon. Do you have a magical place?
