The Roads I Take

We have to drive quite a ways to run errands here in Door County.  The grocery store I like best is twenty miles away; my bank is eleven.   But this week, it is pure delight to make those drives.  I drive slowly down these roads that seem to be almost on fire with color.

These are my roads, my neighborhood.




The leaves are quickly changing and falling, emptying the trees.  I find myself bracing, just a bit, for the coming cold and dark. But only a little bit. More, I am grateful to live in this place of color, of water, and views that make me slow down, exclaim, wonder, pray, and smile.

    I feel as you do about the wonderful county we live in and celebrate.
    I think you need to work on a photo journal of Door County for coffee tables.
    Maybe with poetry too!!
