A ride down Park Heights to Tufton Rd. - Pikesville to Catonsville, Maryland

Today I was missing brunches of my past with a friend back in Illinois. We used to make special omelets, toast Manitowoc bread along with having a cup of hazelnut coffee. While we caught up with each others lives we would be listening to George Winston on cassette. When we were finished eatting we would do the spa thing.

Driving around today, watching the leaves changed colors put me into that same zone as the spa days.

"You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea."

Tashlich is a long-standing practice starting in afternoon of Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur. It is the symbolic "casting off" of the previous year's sins It is done by throwing pieces of bread crumbs or lint into a large, natural body of flowing water .

It was a picture perfect day to take a ride out into the country. I knew it was going to be a great day for photographs when I saw a pheasant crossing the road.
