"Stone Wall in the Catskills"

The light here in the Fall is so clear. Driving along an old country road, we pulled off into a tiny hamlet made up of a few old farmhouses, a white church, and stone walls dividing the fields. A train set village! For some reason I kept picturing soldiers climbing over the walls. I had no reason to think there'd been a battle here, but the past seemed very alive. My friend just said, "Think how many SNAKES are in there!"
