Just recently was the Memorial Day holiday. We walked around saying “Happy Memorial Day”, or “Have a Great Long Weekend.” Am I the only one thinking that’s odd? Memorial Day is set aside to honor the nations War dead.
I walk. Every day I take a tour of the block next to our office, and it’s not a pretty walk – just to get some exercise, clear the brain, move the old bones. My tour takes me through an alleyway turned parking lot, behind some businesses and bordering the freeway. Not pretty, but occasionally interesting – or better perhaps, perplexing.
