August 8

My soul was very heavy after harsh words were exchanged in anger at my house this morning. For my lunch break, I knew I had to go somewhere peaceful and beautiful to restore my equilibrium and sense of perspective. So I paid my first visit to the Japanese Garden built on the grounds of, and watered by, the Tillman Water Reclamation (read: "sewage treatment") Plant.

It's very very lovely there. I couldn't stay long, but I was far calmer and happier when I left, and I've decided to return often. I especially want to visit in spring, when the cherries and azaleas are in bloom.
