On a summer evening, we went to Bend for the art walk. Although the art was lovely, we chose to stop for some natural views too.


When I saw this sweet scene, I felt that deep love for where I live. It is a great place to be. The City You’ll Love to Hate


We began to cross a foot bridge and paused to listen to the water, to the distant sounds of the city celebrating, and watched the bats wing across the water.


Perhaps there are better places to live but I can’t think of any. I’m contented now.


And I’m happy to find beauty in out-of-the-way places as well as in my backyard city.
