In a quiet brick courtyard off The Green uptown, birds gossip in the trees and sunlight plays on manicured shrubs and flowers. An ivy-covered wall adorned with two mirrors reflects the tree branches. Sit on a bench and close your eyes for a moment. It’s safe. The church, the wall, and some trick of symmetry muffle the clatter of uptown life. Breathe in the sun, the shade, and the silence.
