My sister and I are in Pennsylvania for a week’s getaway. Today, in the stifling heat and humidity, we are exploring Pittsburgh’s historic business district. Distant laughter beckons us to a welcoming square surrounded by mirror-windowed office buildings. A wonderful fountain has drawn people of all ages to gather here. Swim-suited toddlers to teens, looking so refreshed and exhilarated, run and play among the water spouts! Their joy is contagious.
While we sit at a small cafe table on the sidelines, I notice a young woman who has stopped at the edge of the water park and I wonder if she, too, is wistfully thinking … “Should I?”
