Another Walk in the Park!

Another walk in the park? Do you remember how hard our work at Marvin Gaye Park was last time? We were digging holes through asphalt for a guardrail around the stage. Here's a pictorial reminder and some reflections on the ayat [signs] in the hardscape.

We'll be out at Marvin Gaye Park again soon (October, insha'Allah). See you then!
