Walking to work


View Larger Map">

One of the ways I know my neighborhood is by walking to work. I live less than two miles from my office. It is a pleasant walk: along tree-shaded streets and paths, past old houses with wide porches, beside two creeks and a small marsh with birds, such as kingfishers, and turtles and frogs, and finally across a flowered campus. The entire stretch is now in blossom, with splashes of pink and purple and yellow and red accenting a dozen shades of green. There is plenty to learn about my home town; that it is also beautiful makes me feel glad.

I am impressed with your persistence with the technical tools of alienation.
