An Appletree Hollow update:

Walter (Wit)Man
May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892

The third of nine children, he was nicknamed "Walt" to distinguish him from his father, Walter Man Sr. At age four, he moved with his family from Brooklyn, living in a series of homes, in part due to his father’s bad investments. Walt looked back on his childhood as restless and unhappy, given his family's difficult economic status.
At age eleven Walt concluded formal schooling. He then sought employment for further income for his family; he was an apprentice and printer's devil for the weekly newspaper. There, he learned about the printing press and typesetting. He wrote "sentimental bits" of filler material for occasional issues.

On a recent trip to the world of "All Things Possible",I went on a
tour that took me to the edge. There, at the crossroads of
Aloha Boulevard and Lotus Blossom Lane, I found the most amazing
view and was lucky enough to witness someone harvesting the seeds
of the Lotus plants. These seeds are said to help one attain a
new level of spiritual enlightenment.

Wanted - on the street by Linda Apple

Found these two gals, on the O.S.U.campus area, who had been
shopping and were waiting on a bus.
It is so great to have warm days again and go out and about.
Seeing people on the street is always one of my favorite things.
I don't really see them so much as individuals but more as the form,
shape,color and shadows that they create and how that adds to
or changes the lines and shadows of the existing structures.
