Walking in the Rain
At the end of Northwest South Street, just up the road apiece, there's a new path through some old woods. A quiet place where only the birds accompany my footsteps. I love walking the few short yards from the end of the street, through the woods, and out at the top into the back of the local elementary school. I've forgotten the name of this little plant but it looks like God spread a bunch of green hearts at my feet, just to say "I love you", at least I think that's what he said. Aren't they pretty?
When I come to the top of the hill there's this whole hillside of lupine, beautiful any time of day, though better in the sun than Friday in the rain.
