As inspired by A duck in her pond and pseudonymous
The young girl rushed up the long driveway to her home. Zig Zagging the walk up that driveway was a daily ritual....at least if she went to school or to play at a friends house.....or went to look for the cow. The dog, Mauka, was waiting at the top of the Mountain Drive and sat patiently till she reached the top, tail wagging. There was always leaps and licks and occassionally there was an aggressive push to the ground to "play". This young girl would drop her items in the driveway and sit on the warm cement looking at the sky and clouds. Wishful thinking about childhood dreams and just feeling the sun and the breeze.
