Meanwhile, Down at the Trinity Overlook ...
The Trinity River Project calls on all of us to use our imaginations. Standing before the scenic overlook, I imagine a beautiful river bordered by clever cafés and chic shops and folks of all shades cycling and kayaking. Someone is playing an accordion. I keep imagining.
Now I imagine that I am rich and no longer need a job. I imagine that I am boarding a jet for Paris. Oh, wow! I'm in Paris now, on the banks of the Seine. Now I imagine someone is slapping me sharply across the face. O.K., here I am back at this Overlook staring out at a bunch of weeds and mud. Gee. That was great. Thanks, Angela Hunt.
