The Gates in Central Park

Originally uploaded by lools.

I have to shamefully admit that I did not make the effort to go see the art on display in Central Park even though I had sixteen days to do so. I can easily blame on it on my travel schedule or the freezing cold. But it was just lack of intiative and I really regret not having made the effort, especially now that the gates have been taken down.

That Christo and Jean-Claude's artistic ambition was realized after 26 years is testimony to the old proverb on perseverance and its role in success. When you read about all the obstacles this couple overcame in order to see thier dream come true, you really understand the power of staying true to your cause without wavering.

Here are a few links if you feel like reading more about this amazing endeavour:
