Walking in the Sunshine

Here in Germany, when fall comes, the glimpses of sunshine become a rarity. So when it makes its brief appearances, you go outside. The day before Thanksgiving and so much to do? You go outside. Who knows when the next time will be. Even now, a half hour later, the sun has disappeared and the gray-white sky has returned.

And now, as I begin preparations for our dinner tomorrow, I can think and recall our lovely walk and the sunshine, the kids whooping and skipping and twirling the whole way, only stopping to pick up some special ingredient for the stew they were going to make when they got home.

The landlord handed out candy as we left.

The damp path was glowing with sunlight, making it seem like we were on a secret, magical journey.

Jack discovered a tunnel.


He started the walk with candy in his hand. He returned with a bunch of ingredients for a "stew".
