Dictation playing in my earphones + 80s & 90s hip-hop and R&B playing in the background, thanks to the park DJ= A great afternoon! [SIDEBAR: Yes, I can get every word, watch a basketball tournament, nod my head to the classics simultaneously.]
My absolute favorite park to practice in has been The Wonder Park, located in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The park is beautifully scenic. The ambience is peaceful and inspiring. Large sized inspirational words like: possible, glorious, remember, wonder, believe, passion, desire, imagine, almost, continue, becoming, another, and changing (to name a few) are scattered all around the park. One of the cool features of the park is that the words light up at night. Love it!
