Yesterday, I said to myself, “Self, get your butt out there and walk. Take some time for yourself. Sweat a little. See some things. Enjoy this crisp fall day. Be present in your own back yard.”
I love it when I talk that way.
I took my advice and I went around town, seeing the sites with a new eye, one honed on small town tranquility. Here’s what I saw:
A park with a gazebo.
Flowers still blooming next to dried leaves in front of the library.
My favorite restaurant with a sign out front that advertises locally grown produce. Yum!
Some amazing architecture.
I will admit to being irritated by the number of telephone and electric poles that got in the way of some great shots. I wish all cables of this type were underground. Why can’t they be. 😦
I also saw a very cool street lamp.
An American flag, a staple for every small town in America.
A small town vista. This was taken in front of the small town theatre. 🙂
A pink house with unique markings. And did you notice that sky. Gorgeous!
A stone lion. Weird, I know.
A park bench that has seen much use.
It was good to get out there today and have some me time. It’s been too long since I’ve done that. I started out without my camera, but then went back to get it. So glad I did. Hello Fall!
