Should I?



Should I?

 Pittsburgh,  Pennsylvania

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?”


“Should I?”
