The bare law of nature
Alongside the path in City Park in New Orleans, sits these two weather-worn and kid-worn oak knobs. Years of tennis shoes and barefoot toes have polished them and laid them bark-free to the sun that finds its way through the trees.
Those were not mean-spirited encounters. Each little foot was enjoying this form of nature -- it was that love of experiencing nature that inspired each little foot rub.
The experience has brought out their grain. But most of all, it has taken two plain-looking knobs and turned them into things of beauty. Their story lies bare on their face..
Seems an almost universal law.
Lagniappe -- (a little something extra)
The fog doesn't let distractions sneak in. You're fully in the moment.
The quiet stillness of fog. One could say the focus of fog.
