I visited Philadelphia this weekend and took spring pictures of my sledding hill in a light drizzle. I recommend scrolling through the slide show, clicking on the arrow, since it’s like an animation. I took a picture, walked a few yards, took the next picture, and so on.
Scroll down for the images laid out and the video of my TEDx talk that refers to it. I hope you don’t mind the pictures of the dead mice. I could have taken pictures of some of the litter I picked up since I want to remind us of our culture and world, but the dead mice were more poignant.
I ran into a guy walking his dogs who moved to this neighborhood, Mount Airy, in the late 1960s and has loved it since. We talked for a while. He shared his research about the soldier the memorial is for. He was killed in action in Vietnam. The rest of his family has since died. We spent more of the time talking about Forbidden Drive and Fairmount Park. I mentioned Weaver’s Way, another part of my childhood I’ve learned to value more as an adult, but he didn’t respond to it.
