25 july 2017 a cloudless evening

the air is still... long shadows on the lawn... a pleasure to react to all this... the height of summer after several days of cloud and falling temperature... and dull sky... this evening all is still and bright... half a dozen adults, children, dogs move slowly across the open space... and a young woman walks by with a newspaper in her hand... as shadows stretch and shrink they call me to walk some more before the sunlight fades... the battery is at 88%...
