My favorite season is Fall, with Spring coming in a close
second. I love the Autumn colors and
decor, the return of “pumpkin everything” and even that wee nip in
the air necessitating adding extra clothing.
However, for me, Autumn is also the harbinger of things to come, namely
Winter which I despise.
Spring, on the other hand, brings its pastel palette. I love to watch the “real Spring”
unfold as the neighborhood comes alive in an awesome display of flowers. Here is an array of some of Mother Nature’s
eye candy I enjoyed while walking home from the Park on Easter Monday. Most of the flowering trees are out, except
the magnolias and the neighborhood tree leaves have yet to unfurl as of this
Spring continues to load slowly, but I believe we have finally progressed to more than just an entry on the calendar. Why? Because a little birdie told me so!
This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub
