“I don’t want a mindless obedient dog the way I don’t want a mindless obedient wife.”

The above photo all began when I went out for a stroll post-lunch yesterday afternoon. I ate my lunch at my desk and longed to go outside, so I spent the lunch hour outdoors--all 60 minutes. The weather was too beautiful to give up. For my last stop, I reached this garden. Here, I found peace and tranquility. Birds were chirping. Leaves softly swayed with the light breeze.
