|Wilderstein - home of Margaret Daisy Suckley, friend to FDR, now a National Historic Landmark with walking trails|
Yesterday I took a walk at a place called Poet's Walk. It was created for quiet reflection and inspiration, both of which I found there. I also had the pleasure of seeing several blue jays and a Pileated woodpecker along with dozens of squirrels and chipmunks leaping across the trail or up and down trees, some even throwing acorns down to the ground inches away from where I was walking. Of course, I didn't take it personally.

In the upcoming days, I hope to take a walk through the grounds of an old mansion with extensive gardens that are open to the public. Tim and I also plan to watch the sun set behind the Catskills from a fire tower in a nearby forest. Who knows what other pleasures the weekend will bring? I can wish for more fine weather and time for a jaunt or two outside.
May you find the time to do the same if you find delight in it.
