A first walk around Galeville in a fine fall

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.

A peek of red.

A peek of red.

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.

Big hill.

Big hill.

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?

  1. I’m loving this little brother. I also love how you are calling it “A Bitty Better”. Autumn is definitely the best time for walking–if only I still could. Someday I WILL walk again, even if I have to wait till the next life to do it, but I’m not in a big hurry to get to that one. I walk around my apartment, with only a few incidents that make me wonder if it’s a good idea or one of my less than brilliant ones. Love your neighborhood! Okay, I’m heading back a day.


  2. i’m a big believer in signs, and this is a strong one. how lucky – it looks like your house is in a beautiful setting and i look forward to seeing more. my favorite season to walk and see is the fall, my favorite season of all. )
