Behind these small woods is a city dump. It gives off all the stink of the rotting crap dumped into it… It smells very much like sulphur. I happen to be walking here late one afternoon and enjoying the long shadows cast by the setting sun. It was still very early Spring, so the green undergrowth hadn’t yet pushed its way through the dry leaves that covered the ground. Everything was covered with a beautiful array of subtle yellows and ochres. As I watched the sun set lower, the colours began to change, to redden. I would like to believe it’s the sun kissing everything with the intention of reminding us that it supplies the beauty we see in the Fall… and not the effects of the pollution vapours rising from the dump.
