Running On Winter ...

“What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
               ~ Jack Kerouac
                     ~ 1922-1969
Spring is just around the corner and winter is waning, but there is still snow on the ground from a mid-March blizzard as runners dash up a hill at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

In The Cold Spring Rain ...

“…I’ll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes
Searchin’ for you 
In the cold Kentucky rain …”
                    ~ “Kentucky Rain”
              ~ written by Eddie Rabbitt & Dick Heard
     ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                                ~ 1970

With a cold spring rain falling lightly on a chilly April afternoon, a man soaks in the quiet beauty as he walks in Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this artistic interpretation.

In The Pink Of Spring ...

“In the spring, at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt.”
                           ~ Margaret Atwood
                                        ~ born 1939

I spotted this pink bicycle left near a tree at the Springhouse of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania as sunset knocked on the door of a picturesque April day. No doubt the bike’s owner was off exploring the beauty of the outdoors … in the pink of spring.

The log cabin close to the bicycle was part of Springhouse, the summer home of General Harry C. Trexler (1854-1933), an American industrialist who built a business empire in Allentown. The park is his namesake.
