"Since my retirement early this year I made it a habit to walk at least forty minutes every day in our neighborhood, usually before sunset with my wife and brother in law Cengiz . Cengiz is 49 and has down syndrome but enjoys activity, walking in a fast pace. Sometimes we go to Antrim park, a beautiful trail in the woods around a lake with a breathtaking view. But most of the time we prefer the trail behind our neighborhood going through pine trees, and ending up in Kaltenbach Park, a prairie with wild flowers, green fields and recreation areas, where young people play soccer, beach volleyball, cricket, basketball and kids play in playgrounds. And once in awhile, during day time, I walk the trail by myself. I don’t know why, but when I walk by myself and I see wildflowers and green meadows, I remember my mother. I feel like she is there, although I don’t see her I can feel her existence and warmth within the nature, the smell of wildflowers and the breeze of the wind touching my face."
