It's a perfect evening to celebrate our 5 year house-iversary by taking a walk to our neighborhood park. The cicadas are singing and the air is full of the sweet smell of growing things. It's just the right amount of warmth and humidity, that combination that feels like a gentle hug. To my surprise, the caution tape had been removed from the playground - a sight for sore eyes. Apparently, we've met the bench marks for further reopening.
It's hard to reconcile my calm surroundings with the knowledge that there's unrest anywhere on the same planet as this playground. Stay safe, pham.
