The air was warm and the sun was shining. Perfect weather had filled the park. A gaggle of young children had started a game of soccer at the base of the hill I was sitting on. Beyond their game was a group of girls sunbathing; some boys hovered nearby, tossing a football around and looking for an excuse to talk to them. A brother and sister strolled along the meandering path leading through the park, their old dog hobbling behind. It was panting and in pain, but happy to be out. An older couple sat on a bench, holding hands.
