It was our first walk this year in one of our favorite wooded hideaways. I wished to become a foot tall all of a sudden. Fairy-sized, I think, I could better appreciate the tiny flowers and green stems poking from beneath their blanket of fall leaves. The word rejuvenating does not suffice in describing the feeling of warm sun on my face and the complete realization that the world has begun anew, that it is… that we are…. all awake.
