The 4th of July in Austin

Walked down to the First Street Bridge to catch Austin’s fireworks display on Independence Day.

I don’t know what it was like in the past, but I hope that Americans manage to find and cultivate a greater sense of community and unity with each other. Maybe this feeling is an expansion of my wishes for my own life.

It was a wonderful, gentle (for a Texan summer!) night filled with friendly, open, family vibes and the sounds of the Austin Symphony Orchestra.

Never done fireworks before. This was mostly just playing around.
