"meet me in the park," and time stood still. the stars aligned, cardinals flew past, and the sun hung long and low, golden and perfect. all the trees swayed gently in the deep afternoon, while we spread out the wood and coals in the BBQ pit.
no worries left, no stresses or pressing matters to attend to. nothing but sheer blisses and friendship blossoming in that lovely conversational time between arrival and grilled chicken sandwich.
this was how the universe was supposed to be; spending time with loved ones, cooking food out of doors, talking, hiding beer consumption for the police, and riding the day out in a manner of our own choosing. simplicity and summer joys!
