As part of World Mental Health Day, the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy participated in an interactive exercise that saw stenciled hearts painted at three parks – Cazenovia, Delaware, and Riverside. The hearts offer visitors a peaceful spot to sit and relax while thinking about life.
Ah, yes… life. Life is a lot different these days. A lot of people are feeling the pressures brought about by the pandemic. These stenciled hearts signify a space where people can take a break from the rigors or doldrums of their new routines.
The “heart spots” are meant for sitting, practicing yoga, meditating, reading a book, listening to the birds, or simply watching a cloud… anything to clear the head and be at peace with one’s self.
