Portable hammock (that conveniently zips shut): check. Paperback book: check. Very pleasant, comfortably warm afternoon at Piedmont Park (this past Sunday): check. This is how you relax on a nice fall day in Atlanta.
“We rise in glory as we sink in pride.” ~ Andrew Young
Big Heart Park sits between Centennial Olympic Park and the hotel district (one block west of the Westin Peachtree Plaza). Andrew Young’s words above are inscribed in large letters along the wall that surrounds this metal obelisk.
“Who knew there was a hidden gem of a waterfall at Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve? I didn’t. In fact, it might not have been there at all except for all the rain we’ve had recently. So, in addition to a nice day hike around the nature preserve, I was treated to this very pleasant surprise. In case you’re wondering, the waterfall’s on the south end of Arabia Lake.”
Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Live Performances: Saira Raza with 10th Letter, Sanam Studio Dancers & Becky Katz performed live at the BeltLine Reynoldstown stage on Saturday September 19. Their performance of Dandelion’s Voyage was an experimental cinematic and musical experience, inspired by Bollywood, folk music, and science fiction.

From John: “Every Tuesday evening at 7 PM (weather permitting) hundreds of yoga enthusiasts gather in the multi-use field next to the skate park on the Eastside BeltLine Trail for outdoor yoga, sponsored by King of Pops. As you can see, it’s quite a sight to behold!”
