River Light

River Light | East Wenatchee, WA | April 2020

Thankfully “stay home” doesn’t mean stay inside. Every day we (and hundreds of others) hit the nearby river trail to walk the dog, watch the ducks and wave a “we’re alive” hello to fellow walkers. It’s a healthy affirmation of our pandemic predicament, a way to be together yet remain apart. Mostly unruffled, the ducks quack occasional warnings to keep our (social) distance.
