      I’m in love. Been going to the parque every night.

      It’s magical and mesmerizing. Footpaths meander. Kids are on bikes. And trikes. And scooters. Parents are teaching their kids how to ride. Everyone, and I mean everyone … is smiling. There was nothing imposingly loud … just the sound of muted laughter. Soft talking. People are playing ball. No nets or goals .. just kicking and chasing them. Lots of well behaved dogs. And a policeman on a quad watches over us.

      It is like the 1950’s. I only saw 2 cell phones. Because people were busy having fun and interacting.

      The paths are so wide that I am not an endangered species should a bike pass. It’s easy to walk … on the paths inside … or outside. There is oodles of parking on the wide surrounding road ring. And another foot path outside that. And a running trail further outside that.

      There are lawns to sit on and a lagoon with 2 fountains to just sit and enjoy. Nothing is rigid. Lines flow and seating is sprinkled. I watched as they rounded corners of concrete pavers so casual seating on edgings of the paths would be more inviting to sit on. People sit and talk and picnic and smile. So many smiles.

      And … the kiddy play area has it’s own little path. With a line in the middle so the little ones can learn … Sidewalk 101. It’s working!!!! I watched them stay in their own lane!!!

      I am not sure when it closes, but at dusk the lights begin … first one section and then another. You can see SMA proper in the distance, it, too, twinkling on.

      It’s not the same today. Today is Candelaria. And it is beautiful. You can still walk around outside and the lawns are still open. I suppose the weekend will have the parking maxed out.

      For a long time I have gotten tired in the late afternoon. So I rest and work on the computer. Wished I would move more. But nothing enticed.

      Now towards the end of the day I go to the park and do a few laps. It is refreshing … physically and spiritually and most especially seeing the happy people.
