mindy and i didn't go to this game, but we'll be at the ballpark on thursday for game 3. hold the rain, please. there's nothing like baseball from the stands, and i can't wait to settle in with a beer and a dog and cheer on the team i've followed since i was a kid yelling for eric davis to sign my hat. nostalgia still exists in the real world. it's called baseball.
before the game mindy and i made an impromptu visit to shades state park (another of my spring rituals). it was pretty vacant, save for a few old people walking around with cameras. it is so nice to see the little bits of green beginning to rise from the forest floor and hear the birds and squirrels dashing around foraging for food. the breeze, the creek, the mud. it was lovely, even if the sun was hiding behind the clouds.
