New York, Lake Placid, USA

Many years spent back and forth home, things have been moved around in the town I grew up in. People come and go and new things replace the old, but there are a few things that stay the same; the cold, cold weather us people of Lake Placid know too well and all the things one can do in a winter like that; the time when the snow starts to fade away and the sweet smell of maple syrup starts dancing around many parts of the atmosphere; then the warmth of the sunny summer days and its cozy nights; then the leaves start to grow into colors of passion and the lakes are so placid that they mirror everything that stares into them; the neighborhoods and its people; that is what I’d call ‘home’.

I drew this map mostly from memory, starting with where the Ski-jumps are, then revisiting the home I grew up in (still my home to this day), and ending with the Lake Placid Center for the Arts (being an artist, that center means a lot to me).

Though Lake Placid is often remembered for its winters, I carry warm feelings of it. And so this is a summer map - to share with you that warmth I feel when I think of this snowy place – marking some of the many things to look forward to every summer.
