  1. It was hot yesterday, 95 and muggy. My dog Lenny and I were trying to enjoy the water in a section of stream that gathers into stepped, man-made pools designed to control the flow. We were in the second highest pooling area, and this girl — 11, maybe 12, years old, but I’m terrible at guessing ages — was two down, wading with the slow, deliberate steps you take when you want to feel the cool of the moving water against your feet. I wasn’t looking for conversation, and neither was my dog. The girl called, “Hi.” I looked at her, and she was waving shyly.
