On a clear, calm morning, the Reservoir in Central Park is a beautiful place to reflect.

It's always darkest before the dawn, and I love the reflection of the lights of midtown on the calm surface of the water just before the sun begins to rise.


Now, we do not make a habit of going to Central Park in the middle of the night, but at the hour this was taken - about 5 a.m. - it is not uncommon to find runners and walkers already making their way around the track. On this particular morning, Scott and I were "sleep training" for an overseas flight - that is, getting up half an hour earlier every morning for a week to ensure we could sleep on our redeye flight to Europe later that week.

Have a beautiful - and peaceful - Wednesday.
