"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Goethe

Is It Really?

Sculpture in Love Park, Philadelphia

 We just got back from a week in Philadelphia to see Joseph and Megan graduate.  It was fun for them, and fun for us, too.  While I was there I decided to put the City of Brotherly Love to the test.  Is it really friendly?  Well, initially, it is as "loving" as any other city, but then I decided that I should be friendly and judge their reactions.  I greeted everyone I could from bus drivers to doormen to people on the street--and they get high marks.  Almost everyone responded, most people smiled, and some started up a little conversation.  It is true that you get what you give out, which means anywhere could be friendly, but I think Philadelphians made it a little easier to try. 

When I got back to Leavenworth, I discovered that I had sold my first painting at Scrivners.  You'll never guess which one--the red and yellow line painting.
