I am the mother of a 20 year old. Sometimes, it seems like yesterday that I was bundling Josh in to his dufflecoat, bread in hand, to feed the ducks. So many afternoons spent at the park. But then he started school and we didn't go so often. Years passed by and I forgot all about the park - until a visit two years ago, with my parents and grandma. Memories came flooding back, and I now visit regularly. In a hectic, materialistic world the park is an oasis of calm. Now, I am rediscovering the simple pleasures that nature offers. With my camera. Sitting with the squirrels, feeding ducks - the rich colours of autumn, the falling leaves - the rustling underfoot. Simple pleasures.
