Meeting in the Woods

I was walking the then unpaved Rivanna Trail (year 2003, I would guess) near Free Bridge in my usual walking/pondering posture. That posture would be: looking down at the trail and thinking about the physics of gnat flight or if I left the door unlocked at home. At times I’ve almost run into another walker. I turned a corner in the trail and noticed I’d come upon a makeshift picnic table with some people around it. I snapped their picture. They were giggling but didn’t seem inclined to fill me in, so I resumed my thinking pose and ambled off.
Later I began to think about how great it would be for a child to have a parent that could be so able to support some “make believe time.”
