A summer evening’s walk puts three friends together in different combinations. Late in the day, about 8 p.m. a man takes his two friends, (best friends ?) for a walk down Louise Avenue, the street on which I live in Wilton. I see these three walk every evening, a ritual that is good for all three.
Others walk in the evening, too. I drove out of my home after photographing the man and his dogs, headed to the highway on the outskirts of town to find three more friends on an evening stroll. It is one of the most pleasant and healthy rituals these people can adopt. A small town such as Wilton allows them plenty of room and safety for their ritual. No gangs, no thoroughfares, no traffic congestion, just a pleasant stroll anywhere in town.
God bless Small Town, USA.
