At the end of the workday I roll the big blue truck out to the edge of the parking lot. Nobody parks out this far and it’s like the city ends with the asphalt. This little pocket of wilderness has become my sanctuary for decompressing and leaving my “job self” at the office.
The leaves have begun to emulate the the sunsets that have trained them all Summer long. Beautiful hues of red, orange, yellow and even a few that are a dark purple. The light breeze gently shakes the maples causing the reds, yellows and oranges to flicker like a campfire.
Behind me a female Cardnial gives sharp chirps as she tracks her mate while he forages through the deep undergrowth for seeds and berries. I can also hear a woodpecker as it hammers an unseen snag in the distance.
The setting sun broadcasts golden light through the tree line that forms a border between the open field and the parking lot causing even more flickering on the little maple tree. As the light and shadows dance in the leaves my sense of peace is restored and it’s time to turn the big blue truck towards home.
