Monday Morning Reds

Posted on June 20, 2005

If it’s not the blues, it’s the reds, right? It is absolutely gorgeous today. It’s the kind of day that would make even the least imaginative person want to escape to the park to lie beneath a big, leafy tree and stare up at the blue sky, calling out with delight the different shapes made by the wispy clouds floating by.
