Just As I Thought

Sidewalk memories

I have many vivid memories of San Jose from when I was a kid, and one of them revisted me this morning while Diego and I were out for a walk. A few doors down, we encountered this guy on the sidewalk.
He was just enjoying the sun the same way Diego does, until the dog decided to sniff him — then off went the lizard, faster than I would have expected, toward the flower beds.
When I was a kid, my grandparent’s backyard was a playground of lizards and frogs, and now I am waiting for them to arrive in my own San Jose backyard along with the hummingbirds.
