For the last 34 days, the building down the street has been in the midst of tarring and repairing their roof. In other words, 34 days of that sickly-sour, sometimes headache inducing smell of hot tar. When I can’t take it anymore – typically around 2pm – Patu and I go on a walk to get some fresh air to clear our eyes and heads.
I am always one to capitalize on a perceived problem and turn it into a positive. How great that it is spring! Who knew? Sometimes I find myself rarely going outside all day long and these walks have provided a view of some new neighborhoods, a bit of urban nature, and some great new color inspiration for spring jewelry. Look at these colors – how incredible is Mother Nature?
