This morning while strolling I came across the First Street Community Garden. Other than myself and the ghosts of the great women on its walls, the garden was completely empty. It was very peaceful there and I stayed a while looking at things and trying to see them. And then I took these pictures.

    I often think of this quote from Dorothy Day. I’ll have to visit the garden myself.

      You should Don. And after you do, fetch me — I live nearby — and we can have a pint or two. Or three. Or four. Or five. Or six. Or seven.
