Just sitting in a park waiting for the band days parade to start. I’m sitting on a high log bench with my feet dangling below me. It’s chilly and feels like fall now. The air is crisp and blue. There are trees all over the park. The leaves and mostly yellow and gold. I’m eating a warm slice of Casey’s pizza.
There are people walking around everywhere. Most are carrying coffee and have a folding chair slung over their shoulder. Dozens of strollers. Kids swarming over the slides and swings. Chattering and laughing.
Voices surround me. Families. So many conversations going on at once. Just heard a mom say to her kid “now the bug is crying”. Kid must have stepped on a bug.
Peaceful out here. The announcer just said the parade starts in two minutes.
My daughter plays the clarinet! Won’t be long now!
It’s a good day. Just saying.
