I took a walk today, for the first time in a long while. A landscape that was once all shades of white, is now green. Blades of grass, tips of evergreens, the tiny buds on the Oregon grape. Green shoots in the underbrush, green moss hugging tree branches. Everywhere I look, green.
It was as if the woods were a friend of mine, one I hadn’t seen in too long, with a fresh haircut and a new dress.
