This is the wonderful space behind the main branch
of the public library, and I'm so lucky that it's
near my office. Went over there one day
last week at lunchtime—and it was all goin' on.
Lots of folks were just hanging out
(eating food from several concession stands,
reading magazines from the racks set under the
trees, or logging on to the Internet on
their laptops with the free wi-fi), and many of them
were taking advantage of the pétanque courts,
ping-pong tables, and chess sets.
