A Nice Walk



 Sorry for the lose of field , but this was a walk with a 84 year old who walks with a walker to keep track  her bluebird houses along a archaeological survey/study trail.




Sometimes I wonder
Over the land
I find precious treasures
Everywhere I stand
Out on the prairie.

  1. Yes, out on the prairie. There is much to be said for slow walks.

  2. Hello Steve, I've just watched the two last posts of yours, I love the photo of your friend Ruth with the mild smile and all the beautiful flowers. The cormorants, and the butterfly in flight by the yellow field. The cattle under the lonesome tree. Thank you very much for the tour in your pretty place.
    Best wishes

  11. Your photos of the prairie make me think of Willa Cather's "O Pioneers!"

  12. A slow walk allows you to look rather than just see. The spire/steeple is delightful. Your photos enable me to absorb your landscape. Thanks.
