"The People Shall Have a Park."

This is the same statue in this post. She looks much less miserable now that the weather is warm and the fountain is running. I tend to anthropomorphize statues. I can't help it. There's a Nathan Hale near where I live whose hands and feet are bound - actually this applies to almost all Nathan Hale statues - and every time I see him I think how sad it is he's been tied up all these years. And the Alice Cogswell statue in Hartford just disturbs me, this little girl standing in the middle of a busy intersection.

But, this post isn't about statues. It's just a little ode to Wilcox Park in Westerly, RI. And a suggestion, for anyone in need of travel advice, to go to Westerly and walk around this park while it's still nice out. Oh, and go to the bookstore Other Tiger, right off the park, while you're at it. You'll thank me.
