Here's a view across the village green. After my truck was towed (see previous post), I hoofed it here to wait for a ride home.
The next photograph should be clicked on. It takes on the quality of an impressionist painting when enlarged.
The metal of the fountain (possibly copper?) is a dark gray but reflects the blue of the pool below it.
I was not alone in my enjoyment of the fountain on this hot afternoon.
And in a small garden nearby is this message:
...a dream for most of us, a reality in this small village park.
On this Memorial Day weekend, it seems to me that the most meaningful ceremony in remembrance of the dead of wars past and present would be the this: the celebration of a world at peace.
