|What was once an orchard is now a vast open meadow.|
Does that really happen? In some years I thought it did. I was too distracted by to pay attention to the real world around me. It happens. Life is like that, and we either learn early on to limit our distractions, or become buried by them. I learned that years ago, but there were times I lost focus. I don't loose focus that much anymore, in fact, I believe it is the world around me that actually keeps those real life worries from burying me. I don't miss the coming and going of spring as I sometimes I did in the past.

Warren Road becomes Apple Road, and once in Warren, we turned left onto Brookfield Road. A short distance up the road the view to our left, over the what had been had been the orchard, was beautiful. The hills in the distance were a blue shadow against the trees that were just leafing out in pale greens of newly erupted leaves. The new leaves unfurl soft, and fragile and hang in the sunlight gathering strength, and color. If you let life cause you to blink, you'll miss it all.
Cheap therapy, and effective. Believe me.
