The sky reflected in a shallow pond, burnished autumn leaves dropping and floating and marsh grasses weaving and swirling in the water... all contribute to this abstract scene. Seen from the boardwalk shortcut I take into the middle of town everyday. Box turtles galore live here, and it's a rare day when careless debris and environmental toss-aways aren't littering this bit of beauty. I'm amazed that people can just toss their Starbuck's coffee cups, CVS paper bags, and other stuff into this little world. Last year, there was even a metal shopping cart tossed in here for a few weeks.
