Waterscape of Sorts, Pinkness, Pathway

I took the above photo on one of my daily walks.  The setting was along the way towards a paved path I was going to walk on.  This might look like a stream to you, but in actuality, it is water runoff coming down from the hills, due to heavy rains we have had.  I liked the bits of tumbleweed, the branches,  and other bits of dried nature, within the perspective.

Walking a bit further down the paved path, to my right, I saw this view.  Water runoff is also pronounced in this setting, as normally speaking, there would be a flat path that one could cross over, from where I stood, to the the trees in back of the running water.  Once again, nature’s elements ruled the landscape, and turned half of it into a waterscape.

My goodness!  There is pinkness against wood, as I walk further on.  I did like the way the pink contrasted agains the dull brown of the wooden slats.  I hope whoever lost this, came back to find it.

I love pathways, especially ones that twist and turn a bit, and lead me towards wooded areas.  This particular portion of the paved path goes straight into a mini forest, a magical setting, of sorts, in the middle of the city!  I love walking here, breathing in the air, inhaling the essence of what nature has to offer.  The scents are beautiful, from the dewy dampness scents of the landscape after rainfall, to the scents that the trees, branches and leaves give off, to the smells of small wildlife inhabitants.  I adore the birds that fly about, and twitter over the pathways, speaking to each other in musical tones, natural melodies to my ears.

What is there not to love when walking within natural environments!

Have a wonderful day, or evening, whatever your time zone is.  Thank you for stopping by.

“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” (Elie Wiesel)

Elisha Wiesel remembers his father, and how growing up under Elie Wiesel’s  guidance impacted him.

May his memory be for a Loving Blessing.

Reflections

A very wise man once told me that you can’t look back – you just have to put the past behind you, and find something better in your future. -Jodi Picoult

My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel.  Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.  -John Lennon

Red Steel

There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.  -Benjamin Franklin

 

In my own house, I rigged up a laboratory and studied chemistry in the evenings, determined that there should be nothing in the manufacture of steel that I would not know.  -Charles M. Schwab
