Some mornings I have the chance to walk with fellow artist Dana Cooper in a local park. We meet and walk all the way around Irvine Park which takes about an hour or so, depending on how many photos we take. We see people we know and even saw a very rare sighting of a bald eagle. They are not common to our area. We later found out that he comes and visits the O.C. Zoo, which is in the park, and chats with a feathered friend of the same species that lives in captivity. We have seen the water rise and the river totally dry as the leaves come and go. Mostly it is a delight to walk and talk with a good friend ... and then stop and have some morning coffee and chat somemore. Now that's the start of a good day.
