We came across these nine adorable lil city ducklings and their Mom while taking a stroll by the West 79th Street Boat Basin at Riverside Park on Manhattan’s Upper Westside. Hope you find them as cute and loveable as we did, despite their rather turbulent surroundings.
"A rich man, fond of felines, asked a famous Zen ink painter to draw him a cat. The master agreed and asked the man to come back in three months. When the man returned, he was put off, again and again, until a year had passed. Finally, at the man's request, the master drew out a brush, and, with grace and ease, in a single fluid motion, drew a picture of a cat -- the most marvelous image the man had ever seen. He was astonished then he grew angry. 'That drawing took you only thirty seconds! Why did you make me wait a year?' he demanded. Without a word, the master opened up a cabinet, and out fell thousands of drawings -- of cats." -- Zen story
