gatherings, holidays, picnics, barbecues and enjoyable pastimes. These could all
fall into the category and be labeled, “Rituals.”
Here is a poem on the subject:

They give us access to each other.”
~Written by Wendy M. Wright~
Canada Day will be observed on this Monday.

Here is a Thomas Kinkade quotation that seems appropriate to the beauty

(Thomas Kinkade, 2001.)
In the United States, called The Fourth of July.
This celebrates Independence from Britain, attributed to July 4, 1776.
I love the Chicago (group or band) song, which is called,

in a public park.

I am going to describe the downtown blocks that will be
closed to traffic, while you walk along our “main street”
Sandusky Street for four blocks, running North and South:
Here are the cross streets that intersect Sandusky Street,
running East and West.
From Park Street to Spring Street, closed.
From Spring Street to West William Street, closed.
From West William St. to West Winter Street, closed.
You may walk in the streets, but when there is promenading
for the cars, watch your toes! All sorts of antique, racing,
unique and well kept cars on display, you may sit on OWU’s
campus lawn and picnic, or if you are in town, let me know,
I am going to be walking and browsing, enjoying the fun
atmosphere and some live music, fair food and other sights
The last quote is one from A. A. Milne’s books:
“A little Consideration,
A little Thought for Others,
Makes all the difference.”
