JOURNAL: June 15, 2006

I enjoyed two wonderful breakfasts recently. Yesterday, the early morning was clear and pleasant, so I bought coffee and a bagel and went down to the park. I sat on a bench beside the pond, sipped my coffee, read a bit of Dickens, and took in the sights as the park slowly came to life with the sunlight. (See pictures.) This morning, however, a steady rain was falling, so I took my coffee and bagel over to a parking place overlooking the river. As the windshield wipers slowly ticked back and forth and the rain fell on the trees and grass, I ate my breakfast in the comfort of the car and watched the river rapidly (after days of rain) moving its load of water and debris toward the sea. (See picture.)
