Earlier this week I spent the day in Denver with our daughter who is a senior at the University of Denver. I went to a downtown salon for a haircut, we went out to lunch, then went to Wash(ington) Park for a warm, sunny walk. Wash Park is the kind of park that should be in the center of every city. There are walking trails, bike trails, ponds, tennis courts, playing fields, a rec center, gorgeous flower beds, and always lots of people. The ponds were filled with Canadian Geese as well as ducks and gulls. I think the birds were enjoying the weather as much as all the people. It was a great day. I have loved having her sort of nearby for college. I could occasionally visit her. She'll be moving to San Francisco in August to start her career. I won't be seeing her as much, nor will I be going for walks in Wash Park.

What beautiful painterly work you have...I agree with everyone here...the cows and geese are really wonderful. And, better still that you get to enjoy your time in the parks with your daughter (althoug hI'm sure you'll love visiting her in S.F. too! :) )
