And as you drive to it, you have to pass this little playground along the creek. It has been upgraded since my grands and I poked around one summer a few years ago.
An inviting trail leads from a parking lot to a picnic table by the creek. I took my Tacos there, and didn't have too many mosquitoes tickling my legs (wearing shorts...bit of a mistake).
This would have been me, about 65 years ago. But I made my dams in the gutter outside our St. Louis apartment...until my mother caught me and said how dirty the water in the streets was.
There's even a climbing wall on the playground. Let's see, that's a man-made object copying nature, put back out in nature for kids to climb on...what's wrong with that picture!
Quote for the day:
Along with faith comes the requirement for dogged persistence. At first meditation may bring you mild highs or some relief from suffering. But there may come a time — just as there does in the development of any skill — when there will be a plateau. You may be bored, discouraged, or even negative and cynical. This is when you will need not only faith, but persistence. - Ram Dass
