I listened to the trickle of crystal water as it ran past a fallen tree covered in velvet moss. Do you see the lichen on the tree? Such a beautiful color and texture. The leaves on the ground , like colored confetti, nature throwing one last party before winter.I'm glad I could attend :>)

A Walk in The Woods
Today was sunny and 60 degrees. A fine Autumn day after a week of relentless rain and cold. I am taking a little time off from other responsibilities this week to recharge and I thought a walk in our woods was a fine idea. I was right. I followed the path into the trees. The cool quiet shade where every sound stood out. I heard something run away, maybe a squirrel, maybe a deer. I saw fire in the colors of a shrub and each leaf seemed like a jewel. Coming up to the old bridge over the creek, I heard frogs splash into the water as I approached. I heard a single leaf fall.
