A Change of Season
I started off early on a Sunday morning walk and I turned right instead of left. Being a creature of habit, I always turn left on my neighborhood walks. That morning something pulled me to the right and what a delightful change of pace and walk of discovery it turned out to be.
I found myself walking down one of my favorite streets in town. It is in a well-established neighborhood and nearly every home is unique and charming. The flower gardens were put away until Spring, and all of the yards were neat and tidy.
Englewood Forest. In our back yard we have a huge, beautiful cedar tree that is part of this old forest. The park has paths covered with fallen pine needles and the scent of the pine trees lining the path was intoxicating. The grey squirrels appeared to be on hyperdrive as they scampered up and down the trees getting ready for the cold weather ahead.
