Picture Postcard Perfect

Today's absolutely perfect Richmond moment was a first for me, despite years living in this city.

Driving down Monument Avenue I saw two mounted officers trotting down the wide median, verdant trees on either side of them and the sky a blue that no crayon could capture.

The cops looked mighty content, but my first thought was that the horses must be loving their grassy stroll.

As always, I marvel at being in the right place at the right time.

This town never ceases to delight me.


  1. you made me smile.

    The late great Bud used to say "The sky was so blue it hurt."

  2. I know EXACTLY what he meant!
