Maybe the reader knows how it happens, in the event that a person notices something not noticed before. It shortly thereafter becomes apparent that the thing observed now, but not before, was not really an uncommon thing – just unnoticed.
The photo that starts this page was taken from another place where the walk was purposely wound around the old tree, in order to save it. I did monkey with the picture a little bit, to cover some distracting constructions on the original photo, near the edge of it (can you see where I have fudged the graphic?)
While I was monkeying around with the photo, I decided to turn the green up a tad. It seems to add a “lush” sort of effect, I think. A little while later, along the same path I came upon some flowers that were less drab or needy of fix-ups.
Finally, I returned to the house, threw the damp flannel shirt I’d used in lieu of a coat onto a chair back, and plunked down into one of the other derriere retaining devices. I picked up a book I’d been reading, and that contributed slightly to the saga of the couch potato now entering its fifth page.
