Pond

Here are some reflections in the pond, on the edge of the Baxter's Woods, just off Forest Avenue. Growing up, it was always a neat place to hang out around during frog catchin' season. We'd grab our lunch, jump on our bikes and head to the ponds. We had a few choices. Sometimes, we'd head to the swamp at the end of Mayfield, seek an adventure in one of the many ponds at Evergreen or once in a while head here to see what we might find--- frogs, snakes, pollywogs, depending on the season. As you can tell, I had a little Huck Finn in me. As a matter of fact, the more times I read those 'adventures', the more I see myself and my friends in those pages. Looking at the water today, the surface actually looks about the same size, with maybe a few more lily pads. Time changes everything they say, but this pond remains basically the same. For me, it's sort of like a place where time forgot. Enjoy a piece of my world!

    Hey Huck, I have some painting for you to do at my house, if you are interested? Great reflections in the photo and in the memories.

  4. The fact that the pond hasn't changed over the years suggests it has achieved a perfect balance. Thanks for the hike along memory lane, Huck, and for the beautiful shot.
