in the garden...
last month, at the cleveland botanical garden, i walked along the paths, alone. late winter was slowly giving way to what now seems an early spring. that day, there was so much silence, broken by the occasional song of a bird, the periodic sound of a passing car. i felt such a deep contentment, which has stayed with me. these natural places - even in the midst of a city - bring such peace...
may all travelers find joy!!
