Living in cities wears me out. Finding solace in parks is the best I can do. Here are some photos from my favorite park (so far) in Suzhou.

I spent an afternoon writing in my journal, once again making a spectacle of myself for the Chinese.

In particular, a 12 year old boy who spent near to an hour lingering around me, making sporadic conversation and even asking me to play basketball with him the next day.

I watched the sunset from atop the city wall. It was very centering.

The only positive that has resulted from all of the typhoons/monsoons/tropical storms we've been slammed with this year is that it clears the sky of pollution for about two days... meaning we can see an outline of the sun and maybe even blue sky if we are lucky (!).
