soul of a city.

Standard

many parks that i visit

are quiet and solitary experiences

and then there are others

teeming with people and life 

and noise and activities

of all kinds

both have such an important place and purpose.

“parks and playgrounds are the soul of a city.”

‘bad things do happen in the world,

like war, natural disasters, disease. 

but out of those situations always arise

stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.’

-daryn kagan

for all who suffer as a result of the disasters

and

for all who arise to do extraordinary things to help.

don’t forget.

Standard

what a lovely coincidence

that on this day

as i continue on my city parks journey

and drive through a neighborhood

i am lost

until

i come to the intersection of

pamela and patricia

the names of

my two sisters

one still with us

 one gone forever

and today –

her birthday

i look ahead to find

they’ve led me

to the beautiful park right in front of me.

“don’t forget to leave your handprints on the ones you love

and your footprints around the neighborhood.”
