Relaxing on Two Feet and Four Paws
Tonight I took a stroll with my dog around the block. The humid, hot day had left us with a surprisingly pleasant evening, with a gentle nighttime breeze and charcoal clouds visible in the dark blue sky. The fuschia blossoms decorating the corner of the street looked much different than they do in sunlight; I missed seeing their vibrant sunlit color. But, I enjoyed the tranquility of the dark windows in the houses around me. My dog sniffed the grass, the plants, the telephone poles. We relaxed.
