Poor air equality in Denver, most recently brought about by drifting smoke from wildfires all over the West, obscures the mountains as seen from City Park on Wednesday, July 14, 2021.

"Germinating," by Colorado author William Henry Lewis, is about an awkward conversation between a teenager and a formidable older relative. It's a balmy day in Denver's City Park and a family reunion stirs up memories and resentments. Actor Lavour Addison, of Creede, brings the tale to life for Stories on Stage and Lighthouse Writers.
