Fish, it is said, don’t know that they’re surrounded by water.
(They also don’t know other important things, like not to bite bait.)
Westporters can be pretty fishy too.
We’re surrounded — from May through September, anyway — by spectacular greenery. An amazing canopy of trees creates a beautiful, lush landscape that we hardly seem to notice.
We’re all over the fall foliage. But our awesome verdant summers — meh.
I was reminded of this last weekend. Friends from Virginia were here; later that same day I chatted with a few former Stapleites back for their reunion, now living far from their hometown.
All commented on the greenery that surrounded — and awed — them.
The same scene many of us take for granted every day.
