My wife and I climbed the berm between the I64/Kingshighway interchange and Bowl lake next to the McDonnell Planetarium and watched the sun set. It is a noisy spot, being situated as it is beside a major street and interstate highway. If that were not enough, sirens and honking accompany each ambulance as it races to the emergency room nearby.
Birds fly up and down the berm, chirping and calling to each other. Redwing blackbirds perch on nearby saplings and threaten us. Swallows swoop and gulp, over the protests of the Insect Protection League, but we sat, sat and watched the sun go down.
