All day long whenever I turned on the radio, I heard about Washington and "THE MEMO". When I turned on the computer, I read about "THE MEMO". I heard people being angry, upset, confused and fed up. It was time to take a break. I stepped outside to take a walk along the creek close to our house. I looked around while I was walking, and I got happier with every step. I heard and saw
JOGGERS - fast and slow, well-toned and chubby,
DOG WALKERS- one trying to teach a tiny dog to sit, another keeping a slow pace with her Saint Bernard and a giant Scottish Sheep Dog,
A HOMELESS COUPLE settling in for the night on two benches,
BIKERS riding fast in formation or cruising along while talking about sports,
BIRDS: Ducks, sea gulls, crows and cranes,
Evereybody under the big blue sky. And nobody talking about a memo.
Time to breathe.
