We spent a good portion of the day at Balboa Park and it reminded me how thankful I am for beautiful public spaces! Not every place in the world has gardens and parks that just anyone can sit and read at for free. I saw families with small kids and people walking their dogs. I heard people discussing work and people speaking multiple languages. There were young people training for track and older people out for a stroll. I sat on a blanket under a tree and read for hours- HOURS! It was a beautiful day and I feel so much better after soaking up sunshine and nature for an afternoon. If you have local parks, take advantage! If you don’t, talk to your town/city and see what it would take to carve out some green space!
