I Can Only Guess


Walking around a park in town one day, I looked into the trees and saw something.

I walked in there and found this, what I photographed in today's picture.

This park is a little bit off the beaten track and seems to be a favorite place for the local homeless folks to sleep in.

Since I don't actually know why this small memorial is here, I could only guess. My guess is that a homeless person spent the night in this private spot and died.

Someone cared enough to put a small cross, an American flag, and some silk flowers there.

This was in the trees about 10 or 15 paces from the leaning palm tree and chairs of the photo I posted two days ago.

I was thinking that perhaps it is a pets final spot too. Interesting way to get the brain thinking.
Have a good weekend John.
