I've been waiting several years to use this picture. I found it online somewhere. I don't know where it's located, but I love it. Every fall I've forgotten to post and write about it. This fall it's been on my mind and I finally remembered!
You might ask, "What's the big deal about this picture?"
I live a desert, you see. I'm not within 200 miles of anything remotely as green as this. (The mountains of So. Utah or the rolling hills of So. California would be the closest green spots to me.) Some people dream about a new house or car, but my dreams involve naturally green grass and tall, leafy trees.
This picture first caught my eye---with its winding paths, convenient benches, and the colorful leaves on the trees in the background, because I love to run and this would be a gorgeous place to run through. It's so different from what I see every day---it's soothing to my eyes and my emotions.
I wonder if I'll ever find it. I like to imagine this is a park in England or Ireland and someday, while on vacation there, I'll stumble onto it. I'll walk along the paths, admiring the foliage, then stop and sit on one of the benches and admire the greenery around me.
