Quiet time

If you seek solitude at Howarth Park in the summer, it's best to arrive soon after the sun rises. It's a busy place the rest of the day. Now that children are back in school and families have gotten back to their school-year schedules, I've found that mid to late morning is the perfect time to walk. The sun brings warmth after cooler nights. It's lower in the sky, even this late in the morning, and throws deep, dramatic shadows. Depending on the way the wind blows, the sound of nearby traffic is a faint whisper, allowing me to enjoy the sound of the breeze rustling the dry grasses and leaves as I draw.


  1. You didn't have to say how lovely and warm it is -- this looks at least ten degrees warmer than your Monday post(and I'm talking Celsius degrees here). It's incredible that you've captured this so perfectly without using any colour!

  2. Your last two posts are so nice in that I can see you are savoring Indian Summer and quiet coming back to your world. Soon you'll have mushroom too.
