Crisp, cool, crystal-clear are the adjectives of the day. We walked quietly over a carpet of leaves.
The tops of pine trees turned to feathers in the sun.
The wind above us rubbed the bare trees together until their whines filled the air
And a medium-sized dog
was dwarfed by the old, old, trees.
We ended the walk in a big field, where Karina turned on the gas and expressed our joy at Being. Right Here. Right Now.
