I whirl to spin some sense from the chaos of my life.

Just behind my house is this entrance to a very inviting urban park which I strolled through this past Sunday. .
The lake is stocked with fish normally, but right now it is waiting to be re-stocked after a fountain was installed.
In the gazebo a concert was taking place, with what looked like impromptu dancers adding to the performance. One of the dancers had ridden into the park on a scooter (the old fashioned, foot-operated kind) with his wild costume blowing in the wind. It was quite a sight.
Next I headed to a popular eating and food shopping mecca a couple of blocks from the park.
It's always full of people.
The pedestrian nature of this urban neighborhood invites chance encounters. As I approached the park on my way home from the farmer's market, I ran into a friend from work and we spent the afternoon discussing work issues.
