Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 214 – A Walk In The Park

My daughter and I took a bouquet of flowers from our yard to a sick neighbor … Took a long walk in the park tonight with my kids, just like in an old movie.

Remember the old movies where people took long summer walks in the park? Me too. A kid dragged a stick along a picket fence. Couples strolled and chatted. Men and women talked of big ideas and small details. Time moved slow. Seems like an age gone by.

Tonight, I took a long walk in the park with my kids. Our experience?

  • Two boys rode a tandem bicycle.
  • Some children were petting a cat.
  • Families walked and talked together.
  • Skateboarders crossed our path.
  • A teenager jogged by.
  • Canadian geese were strutting.
  • An old friend stopped to talk with us.
  • Dogs frolicked.
  • Ducks paddled around the lake.
  • A young couple swatted a tennis ball.
  • A couple boys shot some hoops.
  • A woman sat reading on a blanket.

Just like an old movie.
