I went out for a walk yesterday (Oct. 7, 2012) and took a long-cut through the Whiteaker Community Garden. I took a couple of hundred pictures, but I whittled them down to this four minute slide show.
The occasion of falling into the drenched colors of autumn seemed to call for Mary Oliver’s poem, “The Summer Day,” in which she asks, “Tell me, what are YOU going to do with your one wild and precious life?”
It also seemed to call for one of my favorite songs by Laurence Cole and the Songshapers, “Can You See the Beauty?”
This is about slowing down for four minutes and slipping away into your quiet place of beauty, poetry, and song.
