This eye catching work of art is also at the Post Office. It bobs and weaves in the wind. I am sorry I don't know who made it, I'll have to find out. It is very striking.
OK, I have crossed our Main Street and I am at the Bank now. Our town has put a great amount of effort into the path system. They have a long way to go still but boy, it is sooo much better than when I was a kid. We had NO sidewalks. Roller Skating was tricky. ;0)
It is so soothing here. Cool, calm and I love to hear the kids playing in the creek.
There is a young runner sitting up to his armpits in the water just downstream from me chilling his sore muscles in the super chilly snow melt. We have a lot of runners sitting in our creeks this time of year. They come from the flat land in large youth groups and run and soak. The high altitude training is ideal. If you can run here with the low oxygen levels than you can run like the wind in Los Angeles!
However I am no runner. I am a reader, so I pulled out my newest read "The Poisonwood Bible". Oh my... this book is amazing. I have been told many times to read it but just never came across it. I am so glad I bought it and I can't believe I waited so long. When I start a book and can't stop thinking about it or talking about it (poor hubby)... it's a keeper! I highly recommend a soak in a creek with The Poisonwood Bible.
