Little Town on the Prairie Steps It Up

Jay Walljasper

It’s like a small-town scene from Norman Rockwell, updated for the 21st Century.

A Latino family strolls leisurely through the park, immersed in conversation. Coming up fast behind is a blonde woman in designer exercise gear and earplugs, intent on maintaining her power-walking pace. Bringing up the rear is a young man with his Husky, both of them staring up at a patch of sun that has appeared from behind the clouds.
