Berries

Reading this article I was reminded of when I was a kid and we use to play in the woods. There was this field that unfortunately is now houses but, back then it was full of berries.

These days if I’m looking for berries we do so when we’re up at our cabin. We can usually find them along the dirt road that leads to our cabin.

Anyway, the article that took back to my childhood is entitled “Tasting the Sweetness of Summer, Berry by Berry” by Hope Jahrenaug over at the New York Times. Back to a place where time didn’t always matter.

Back in my youth

This is a story that took me back to my youth. When it seemed like you could go wherever you wanted when you played. Down the sidewalk to the woods and the creek in which we played in every summer.

Now it seems like everywhere is off limits. There are no trespassing signs wherever you look. Down in the creeks and on the fence along by the woods. To me, this article entitled “Allemansratten, the Swedish Right to Roam the Countryside, is Guaranteed by the Constitution” by Melissa Bryer at Treehugger, gives me hope that perhaps all is not lost, at least in Sweden.

Sincerely-
