Sunday in Washington Park

18 x 24

Me. Arriving early to the park to play basketball, before the big guys would come and kick me off the court. I could run lay-ups, shoot around and practice without being told that girls couldn’t play.

I did and I brought along my own basketball, as they slept in late on Sundays, having partied Saturday night. They’d arrive in their cars, showered and clean and have to wait for me to finish playing.

I was clever like that and parlayed it into a scholarship to attend college 😉
