In typical local fashion, there are always many more entertainment options than time to participate in them. This weekend was the architectural tent revival which, sadly, we missed. Mona Lisa, The Sprite, Tante Grace and I did manage, though, to go on a hike with the Audubon Society to see old growth trees in Zoar Valley, a place I last visited while in high school. What a treat; we had a perfect late summer day, a convivial group and an excellent guide. Zoar Valley is one of those places that surprises you. It is relatively close but akin to a letter from an old friend or a favorite piece of jewelry in the sock drawer. You don't usually think about it but when you happen to come across it, you marvel at how you ever forgot it and how happy you are that it is there. We take for granted our changing landscape. Even in Buffalo, future shock persists as our city is rearranged, old buildings torn down, neighborhoods morphed. Being in a place that looks the same as it probably did 500 years ago has a way of helping to keep things in perspective.
