Children played, and parents held their new-borne. The blended fragrance of jasmine and peonies scented the air. Quality conversation flowed among a delightful mix of people.
It all worked like magic: In defiance of superstition, this Friday 13th, the AMPOD garden party had great luck.
In defiance of the weatherman, the clouds departed and the sun was bright. In defiance of urban concrete, the participants found a green oasis. People came, and the garden party was good.
