The rain stopped enough last weekend for my dear wife Karen and I to fulfill our promise to Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle to put on the leash and take our first loop around the block since moving into the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville.
I’ve noticed on my drives that one of the nearby streets has a name close to my heart. I spent the first five years of my life living in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. That Polish community shaped my life, with both sets of grandparents living on either end, and my father driving back west from Long Island to visit until I got my license and took my turn.
That’s A Bitty Better poking through the house on the corner of our street. My heart races at its sighting. That’s a great sign.
That’s our lake view. Of course, one must look from the middle of the street to catch a glimpse of Onondaga Lake way down there. I like it.
We will investigate more blocks this fall. And winter. Spring. Summer.
What word of significance has popped back into your life? Which is your favorite season to walk? What would you like me to take photos of around A Bitty Better?
