It's Deering Oaks Park in late autumn. In childhood and now, I never miss a chance to take a stroll 'through the Oaks'. The skating pond, the duck house, the bandstand, this bridge, the warming hut and the seemingly, endless pathways were all a part of my youthful ways and still are. I like to think that I'm still a bit 'youthful'. In many ways, the antics I pulled in Helen Kibler's seventh grade reading and social studies classes still linger very much in my adult psyche. I readily believe that those who know me well, today, certainly my siblings, would probably agree. This park is special to me, always has been. So, I was very excited, last Christmas, to open a lovely ornament of the Duck House from my PA(Personal Assistant... hahaha!) and dear friend Donna. It'll be hanging in another 3 weeks or so, filled with special times among these shrouded paths.
