Jordan’s Branch – April 8, 2010
See the log in the picture that lies across the stream? My dog and I cross that log twice a day, most days. It’s not Nepal, Ecuador, New Mexico or the Appalachians. It’s the best we can do within walking distance living where we live, though, and it’s a good place for our daily walking routine. The pictures make it look prettier than it really is. This is an urban environment littered with thousands of plastic drink bottles and other trash items that flow downstream when it rains. I try to carry out a few items now and then when I can. I’m glad to have this place. Grateful for how good things are, and accepting that it may not be what I dreamed of years ago, but it’s not too bad.
