The off and on rain we’d been having today looked like it was finally off for a while. After working most of the day and then spending too much time loading music onto my smartphone and managing other first-world problems, I took a short walk to Maple Leaf Park. The two maples, the poplar, the iconic water tower, the playground – I’ve sketched them all before, but they all seemed fresh and lively compared to anything I do on the computer.
I hate to say it – dare I say it? – but I’ve been seeing tiny hints of orange and yellow in the topmost leaves of the maples and aspens.
Back to my first-world problems.
