Go Hawks !

There is something about beautiful evenings…..

Walking our pet around the park with a slowly setting sun in the background,  I saw  a man  sitting and reading a book in the  slanting sunlight  across the green grass, the soccer field was empty perhaps his grandkids were playing at the park slides, he was having some time for himself, basking in the…
