This little one is from a recent
autumn jaunt to Oak Bay's Uplands Park.
It was on a dear friend's birthday that we made
a first trip to this park and,
because it was a fairly dark, dank afternoon,
we didn't get any further than this spot on the path.
I set up to paint and thought
how the mystery of what lies around the bend of this path
is similar to my friend on his birthday
wondering what's around the
corner for his new year...
may it be overflowing with of all of your heart's desires!
