I did go to the gym to exercise. On the way back I walked through the park.

It's an almost perfect summer day. There are a few high, thin clouds, but the sky is mostly blue. It's warm in the sunlight, coolish in the shade. There's a light breeze. I walked along the artificial stream in the park. It's rushing and bubbling and burbling over its tiny rapids. Grackles are hopping on the stones that line it. (I like grackles. They are not invasive.) A park volunteer is watering the flowers planted along the street, all in bloom now -- hot, mid-summer colors.
