Once upon a time, everything was green ...
These pictures pretty much sum up my heart's desire. As does this excerpt from Walt Whitman's Song of the Open Road ...
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.
My heart longs for color, light, and warmth. I can't wait to walk down familiar green paths again.
How about you?
