I was walking along a path in northern Wisconsin, a few hours after it had rained. I noticed a colorful leaf on the ground with a perfectly round raindrop right in the middle of it. Stooping down, I could see all the details of that single raindrop on a leaf – tiny grains and debris were encased within it. It was as if there were a whole other story to be told about the miniscule objects inside the raindrop, which sat in the middle of a fallen leaf, in the middle of a gravel path, in the middle of the woods in Oneida County, Wisconsin.

I’m glad I was walking that day. Although I love biking, walking allows one to pause to take in the details of one’s surroundings.  A cyclist riding by would never have seen these small objects, the details of nature.
