It was a beautiful walk in Rock Creek Park (even with my ongoing limp post surgery).
Coming down the trail, I saw this amazing horse with a mounted police officer, and he was nice enough to stop and let me pet the horse and take this photo with them.
It was a truly beautiful animal and it was so cool seeing them on patrol for all the people taking advantage of the great outdoors here.
In a fantasy type of way, I thought what a dream job (not high-tech, but oh so much in tune with nature and helping people)!
Anyway, this time of year, it was really lush green in the park and pretty peaceful.
It was also interesting today visiting my dad and sitting outside on the deck with him, he looks up at the sky and says rhetorically, yet so innocently, "Who painted the sky so beautiful?"
I thought wow--what an amazing and poetic way to think of the hand of G-d and all that he has created for our benefit.
Now, I think to myself outside, how our physical reality is just a manifestation of G-d's artistry, imagination, and kindness, and it makes it all even better.
