Green Shadows

Do you have seasonal amnesia? I do. I forget many of the particular sights, smells and sounds of each season until they are upon me. A month ago I was wild for spring sunshine and warmth. Now I am seeking out the dark green shade of summer. I guess I should be happy that this allows me to enjoy each season as if it were the first!


The other day I went out with a new camera and inadvertently set the exposure value very low. All my photos came out dark, dark, dark. Of course, I lightened them up with iPhoto, but they are still have a mysterious air to them—like the dappled green shadows under a leafy tree in summer. Who could ever remember green shadows in winter? Not me. But I savor them now.
