Asa child, I would look for the coolest places I could find to sit and draw or read a book. There was one park that had very old oaks and cottonwoods. There was an arched bridge, though it was much plainer than this one. I liked to sit on the side of the water and just enjoy the coolness and shade. The birds would often fly in and out around the area. Smaller animals would come in for water. I saw a fox family occasionally. Now, we don’t allow children that same freedom like I had in those many years ago. I know my children had considerably less. My grandchildren even less that them. The news media has done a good job of educating us of the monsters in the world around us. They made us fearful of others. In some ways, I am glad. In others, I am very sad we have to be so careful now. :o)
