Park Without Green
A day in Washington Park.
Cenotaph: A monument erected in honor of a dead person whose remains lie elsewhere -- for others, besides myself, who didn't know the meaning. Right off the Confederate Mound where the remains of 6000 Confederate dead lie -- the largest Confederate burial ground in the North -- is this monument. It's in the shadows of a Confederate cannon and the base of the memorial with the names of the Confederate dead written on it. The Cenotaph has no names on it, but the inscription tells a very interesting -- and maybe not widely known -- story of strong and true patriotism. Oak Woods Cemetery on the south side of Chicago.

Time in Springtime
Most of the early day and midday was overcast. As it happens sometimes, sunrays gloriously broke through the clouds. And the evening was like a canvas a master artist was saturating with colors. I rode by an old friend that seemed pale and nearly colorless during the sometimes lonely, long and snowy Winter. But now that parade of souls, enmeshed with sunlight, had taken on the colors of the colorful Spring evening.The Fountain of Time in Washington Park.
