I always have lived in great places and spaces. Even so, my current home is far and away the best. When I look out my big front window each morning, I simply ask Matisse ‘What have your created for me today?’ That view of the Twin Lakes is different every day, with beauty abounding. A couple of weeks ago, it was all the many kinds of flowering trees. This morning it is all the fresh green the trees are now wearing. Kentucky has totally disappeared, and we won’t see it and all its lights again until late fall.
People really use and love the park. There are runners and walkers, bikers, high school track teams in lafe afternoon, folks pushing strollers and walking dogs every time of day. The park has also been a great place to socially distance during the pandemic. Friends and I can take a walk, and then sit in any one of the groups of benches and catch up with each other.
The playground was closed with yellow caution tape for a long time, but now it is open, so kids’ laughter has returned, which is a great treat. Families are now back grilling out, feeding the ducks and geese, breathing the great clean air, enjoying the great view from the overlook.
Life is slowly returning to normal. And that incredible view brings me joy every day!
