My neighbor and I now try and spend a part of our evenings walking around Sequoyah Hills. We take brisk hourlong walks down Cherokee Blvd and alongside Lake Loudon. And there isn't a better time to start than right now as my neighborhood gets more beautiful each day. I can't even describe what you're missing out on. The Dogwood Trail runs through Sequoyah Hills, so there are many flowering dogwoods with beige, white and pink. Other trees with carnationlike flowers have bloomed on the walking trail on Cherokee, and with the recent rains, many of the flowers have fallen off so it's like walking on a bed of them. I wish I could go barefoot and feel the juxtaposition of the soft petals and gritty gravel under my feet.
That topic of thought has been on my mind recently: Will I ever live in another place as charming as East Tennessee or as gorgeous as Sequoyah Hills? What other place could usurp this almost perfect world in my eyes? Do you know?
I had some work friends over last night and we watched parts of Bridget Jones Diary and The Lion King. I titled the night "A Social Meltdown," as I wanted it to be a time for all of us fairly new to Knoxville to reflect upon our time here and just have a comforting easy night. Bridget Jones' Diary does it for me each time. Colin Firth is a dream and "Mahrk Dahrcy" makes me swoon. The Lion King was a treat and so so funny. And the reason why I finally joined Blockbuster.
