Images from an afternoon walk—
Sections of the canal covered with floating autumn leaves. Zigzagging trails of clear water marking the passage of ducks. A capped jug bobbing cheerfully in the river. What’s in the jug? Moonshine, maybe. Or maple syrup. Don’t you want to know? Butter-and-eggs, still fresh and yellow, growing along the sides of the path, a sign that summer has yet to leave town.
