There’s a bench on Mission Bay where one can find joy. It’s located on the mostly quiet pathway of South Shores Park, by a small beach directly south of Fiesta Island.
There is water and sky, sunshine, a pleasant breeze. And a plaque…
IN JOY WITH
JOAN E. HELLER
MAY 29,1936 – SHE’S STILL HERE
SIT DOWN, RELAX & LOOK AT THE VIEW
Sit a while on this bench, resume your journey down the path, and you will still be here.
That joy will remain with you.
