2010, Day 301 - Walking home

This morning I had to take my car in for servicing. It was making a truly terrible noise when I turned the wheel to the right, it was a metal-on-metal nails on the chalkboard kind of sound. Certain that it was no good I dropped it off at the dealership first thing this morning.

Unfortunately for me, the dealership I bought the car at is across town and I thought that, if there was something horrifically wrong, I would have better leverage with them. The problem is that their shuttle generally doesn't go as far as my house so they offer me a ride to the lightrail station. Well, I've only been on the lightrail once and that was downtown so I thought it would be a worthwhile experience. When I got off I had the option of waiting for the next slow bus or walking home. Since it would take the same amount of time I opted to walk even though it was raining.

On my way I cut through Laurelhurst park and the light coming through the trees was just beautiful. The canopy was illuminated and the pale yellow of the leave just came alive so I decided to capture the moment. Try to recall the mellow tones of damp earth and the sweetness of dry leaves, the sound of the breeze making the trees rustle almost like wind chimes and the feel of light drops of rain on your face.
