If you had joined me for my walk in the park today…

Jessie and Joe
Jessie and Joe

… You would have met Jessie and Joe. Even though their health, especially Jessie’s, has declined since I first met them two years ago, they still take regular walks in the park. When I asked them for this photo opp,  Jessie stepped away from the walker she now uses and they moved closer together. One of my joys in photographing people is to engage them in conversation, so I asked, “How are you doing today?”  Jessie’s reply was, “Still kicking,” which she demonstrated by kicking out at her walker. Then she added, “But not too high!” She may be declining in health and less able to get around, but she definitely hasn’t lost her spunkiness, and neither has Joe. They are a delightful couple. As I said in yesterday’s blog post, one of the blessings I see in blogging is the connections that occur when I meet people and ask to take their picture.

Getting to know Jessie and Joe is one of those connections, and it definitely adds joy to my life. I hope it is a bright spot in their day too.

Here are a few other pictures from my walk, just to give you a sense of Chagrin River Park and what a great place it is. Small, yes, but truly lovely and filled with friendly people having fun (Click on any picture to scroll through the gallery).

That’s it for this time. Thanks for joining me on my photo walk.

  1. We met them the last time I was walking with you in the park. I love her attitude. I think it is essential at that point of one’s life. Marti
