Cutting the Ribbon

Paul cut the ribbon at Nathanson Creek Park today.  He took loppers to a beautiful white bow, snipped and slashed until the strands of ribbon fell, and shook hands with Mark, restoration specialist who has worked tirelessly to manage and complete the project.  A small group of dedicated community members applauded.  Paul and Mark shook hands and thanked each other.  They remembered Paul’s former wife Christy, who envisioned the park years ago, and agreed she’d be proud. 

Cameras whirred, eyes dewed up.  A small boy retrieved the pieces of ribbon from the ground.  With the ribbon cut, Paul is free to celebrate the beauty of a vision realized.  He’s in Napa now, doing what he loves best: playing music.
