Opportunities for Awe

Yesterday's walk took me along a Reston trail. It was late afternoon, balmy and blooming, with crows cawing in the swamp.

I thought  about the name of this blog, "A Walker in the Suburbs." I thought about how if you didn't know my suburb, you might envision streets of sameness, void of nature and texture.

You might not imagine this immersion in a natural world: stream gurgling, peepers peeping, smell of loam in the air. You might discount the opportunities for awe.
