Perspective

The view near the top of Buena Vista Park

I’ve taken a lot of long walks this week: to the edge of Golden Gate Park last weekend; up Mount Sutro last Sunday; all the way to the Botanical Garden before it opened one morning; along the Fairy Gate and Mystery trails at Mount Sutro early on Friday; up the winding hill at Buena Vista Park today. Walking has given me space and perspective. Everything seems less urgent when trees and flowers are patiently growing all around me.
