Unless the weather is really fierce (or unless I’m running late), I choose the scenic drive to work. First, I drive through country neighborhoods, past the farm and then comes autumn heaven. I’m in New England, so of course there are stone walls everywhere…most of the farmland and meadows are bounded by them. There are fields THICK with Canada geese who are fueling up for their long flight south…yesterday, the field looked like it was full of breaking waves from the goose-y frenzy. Then there are the open meadows where on any given day, I might see deer or raptors or woodchucks or herons. Yesterday, it was painted horses grazing gracefully in their paddock and a herd of cows with heads bowed into their morning meal. Throw in the fact that the leaves are just starting to turn golden, so there are lots of leaves on the tree, with the early morning sun glowing through and it was an idyllic drive. It definitely got my day off to a cosmic start.
