I stopped by a friend’s house to drop something off this evening after church. We got to talking and wound up going out for a walk at Reed Park, which is close to her house.

We picked a good night for it.

The weather was cool but not cold enough to be uncomfortable, and the sky was so clear that the stars looked very close as they glittered through the treetops. Best of all, we felt very safe, because a couple of laps into our walk, a half-dozen police cars descended on the Head Start building next to the park, and a group of officers spent the next hour or so going in and out of the building, doing some training with their big, beautiful police dogs.

Hope you had a good evening.
