The weather is getting warmer as Spring really sets in. I finally got out and took a little walk in Central Park this past weekend. It was really relaxing. It's funny how here in this city, nature is neatly contained within a squared-off, 843 acre plot in the middle of Manhatten, surrounded by concrete, buildings, and bustling traffic. An oasis in the midst of so much chaos. Since I have so many allergies, this is probably the best scenario for me, because I always got sick on family camping trips growing up in the South. But even though I hated them at the time, I've come appreciate those nature excursions from my childhood. It's important to go out and take advantage of all that lush, organic goodness now and then. Seeing all that green really came in handy for this week's show sketches. So thanks for getting me out of the house, and into the woods every once in a while as I grew up, Dad.
