Morgan Park on the north shore of Long Island Sound in Glen Cove is abusy place this sunny Sunday
afternoon. From my position, I can see the distant foggy shore of New Rochelle andthe white sails of
boats in the harbor. The sun makes millions of tiny stars in thegrayish waters of the sound.
As I look around, I can see people of different ages: young, middle-aged, and old. In many of the

tendto prefer the shady areas under the trees, while the younger ones splash in andout of the water.
Nextto us, two men play chess. My husband islooking at them curiously because he likes to play
chess, too. I know he wants to join them. Infact, after a little while, he walks over to talk to them. Now
heis taking one of their seats and joining in the game. Meanwhile, I am finding a comfortable position
in my beach chair. To my right, a large family occupies spaceunder a big old tree. They broughtenough
foodand drinks to spend a whole weekend here! The men are playing cards, the women are reading
newspapers and magazines, and the childrenare chasing a ball. In front of me,there are two women
wearing long black dresses. The only thing they bring is a big radio, butto my relief, it remains silent.
Suddenly, gray hazy clouds cover thesun. It is getting darker and mighteven rain. People quickly
pick up their belongings—blankets, beachtowels, chairs, portable coolers. Thepath leading to the
parking lot is suddenly crowded. The only people that don’t know what is goingon are two chess
players: my husband and the other man. I’m going to have to stop writing and tellthem to move.
