Adults forget the depths of languor into which the adolescent mind descends with ease. They are prone to undervalue the mental growth that occurs during daydreaming and aimless wandering.
Edward O. Wilson
As soon as we got home from school today, I put on my walking shoes and hit the pavement. Bad enough I have to be cooped up in a windowless office at school for 7-1/2 hours. I certainly didn't want to waste the afternoon away doing mundane household tasks. Not when the skies were this blue.
This little chicken was out for a walk, too. All alone and to me seemed so very sad. I wonder if she has a place to live or was abandoned.
Busy residential roads filled with cars certainly isn't the idea place for barnyard animals yet now there seem to be more than ever.
For one hour, I wandered up and down neighborhood streets.
Capturing things that caught my eye.
Lots of folks are growing corn right now.
And gardening in small spaces.
It's certainly not Green Acres, but it's nice to see people growing their own fruits and vegetables.
I was home by 5:00 p.m. and it was still gorgeous out. Afternoons are getting a bit longer which makes me very happy.
Of course, shortly afterwards, the sun set and the sky changed.
And then faded to black.
