DOES IT WORK ON YOU?
It was a late autumn afternoon when mom told me to put on a jacket and my tennis shoes. She said we were going for a walk, one I'll never forget.
I was a typical pre-teen boy, interested only in basketball and football and never seemed to see much else in the world. On this afternoon we walked to a city park, full of oaks, elms, maples and sycamores. It is the first time I remember seeing leaves afire in oranges, reds, yellows and rust. Honestly, never noticed the colors before, at least not in a way that registered. Sure I remember raking dry old brown and crisp leaves and building leaf forts, but on this particular afternoon my world gained a sense of color.
I still enjoy the color and again this year our drive took us to the eastern slope of the high Sierra.
