Three Stops for Enchantment

So, I am driving along looking for a 2 hour free parking spot down town. This requires a lot of quick focus if you are alone. But something caught my eye.
Do I continue on with my parking drama? or do I stop for a better look?
I stop
IMG_0148because I need a closer look at this.
IMG_0147Clearly it is a fairy house, you can see her resting over to the left near her fire truck and her silver car. See her pink wings? Such a tidy little home she has.

So, I am walking along my sometimes usual path to shop for supper when I notice this ~
IMG_0149I’ve seen this tree trunk many many times, but this time I saw it … upside down
IMG_0149-and I could see exactly what was missing

So, I am walking along a city block looking at all the amazing magnolia blossoms that are  getting really serious about the coming Spring
and I wonder
IMG_0179will this bird be back?

Unusual means of Transportation

Here is Absolute Veritable PROOF that we do indeed have witches right here in River City! Look very carefully and you will see what I mean. Is that a good parking job? or a careless blunder?

Delight of Absurdism

Out on a Sunday walk, going my usual route, I noticed this long chalk arrow pointing Left to the road into the woods. It is one of the 2 roads near the “Why Not” sign (see last week’s post). So, this week I took the road into the cool woods as the arrow suggested, I was curious.

20130922-153308.jpg I carried on wondering if there would be another arrow pointing left at the end of this road. … Maybe it was directing some folks to a party or something?

20130922-153643.jpgThere Was another arrow!  So I took that route, following Arrow #2.

This was a short jaunt up the hill then one could go either right or left.

Would there be another arrow?

Yes! there would be and it was another left turn.. Where is this thing taking me? It’s Got to be some gathering, maybe a birthday party? So this road I am about to debark on is a long one and if I took it, I would be making a big long loop home, so off I go looking for one more arrow that would be pointing into someone’s driveway. But there was nothing … and when I came to the end of This road, sure enough … Another Left turn arrow!

20130922-155626.jpg So now my curiosity is on fire. Surely there will be something these arrows are guiding me to! I take the sharp Left turn, which is still on the route circling towards home. Again on the look out for and end to this treasure hunt, what the treasure would be I had no idea, but I thought Surely there had to be one. At the end of this road would be an answer. A right turn Arrow would continue the game, but another Left hand arrow would mean something entirely different. Follow me here.

20130922-160116.jpg It’s a Left turn!!!

It’s another Left turn!!!

Which means …. that this series of arrows just takes one around one big long circle. 5 Left turns that repeats on and on and on. There is no party, no gathering, no … Nothing! Just a journey in itself. It made me laugh to myself, it was absurd and it surprised and delighted me. In a way, I found that I was actually relieved that it had no purpose other than itself.
I had been Looped!

Why Not

I was out for a walk on one of the last beautiful sunny crisp days of summer and I was quickly approaching a fork in the road where I could see a sign in a curious shape nailed to a tree.

20130914-144515.jpg Before I was close enough to read the sign I had to make a decision whether to take the road through the shady cool woods or to take the open sunny road.

20130914-145703.jpg I chose the sunny route

20130914-145815.jpg Ya … Why Not

A Quiet Walk Home

There is always so much to see, and it’s new every time. So many stories

Now what is this dot for?

And who might this be? Who drew it?

What’s this half circle all about!?

How many bees on this little piece id lavender heaven?
I never tire of it all ~
