see me
even when I’m trying
not to be seen
silence is your shield
but life is my armor
how I wish to be
free
from this weight
from this crutch
it limits every step
pins me to this page
I don’t want you
to look
I don’t want to be
seen
but, oh, how I long for it
see me through the smoke
I’ve created
see me
even when I
can’t stand
to be seen
I’ve slipped behind
the silence
28 days
unnoticed
I’ve held too much
under my tongue
I don’t want
to be
the joke
but see me now
or leave me
to live
just as I am
unceremoniously
indifferent
hated
by no one
but
me

On Location Series #12–Glendening Nature Preserve

 

 

 

The Glendening Nature Preserve was an exceptional experience.  During my short venture there, the greenery was not fully in bloom as spring was just a few days away.  I could hear the birds though, but that was about it in terms of wildlife.

Well to my ears and eyes, truthfully.
I intend to return here sometime in the late spring or early summer.  That time nature will be awakened in all beauty and selfishly, I can take better pictures.  The hike was pleasant nonetheless.  There were several trails that connected to each other, some near the water (wetlands).  Others with higher elevation (cliffs).  The rest is flat and hilly areas nearing different campsites and snake deep in the brush.  I seriously advised this place for more exploration, one of the true gems in Prince George County Maryland.

On Location Series #11–Fort Washington Park

This was a delightful day.  My little one and I explore Fort Washington Park which was the namesake of its location in Fort Washington, MD.    Fort Washington, established near the community of Fort Washington, Maryland, was for many decades the only defensive fort protecting Washington D.C. The original fort, overlooking the Potomac River, was built in 1809.  It was originally called  Fort Warburton but was renamed in 1808.  During the War of 1812, the fort was demolished by its own garrison during a British advance.

As of today, this historic fort is maintained by the National Park Service.  It was initially constructed in 1824. It is a stone structure with a reliable cannon directed down the Potomac River. The fort was largely remodeled in the 1840s and 1890s. The Fort was turned over to the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1946 after its last military personnel left.

Now with that bit of history out of the way, here are some videos and pictures of our time in the park.  Our visit took place on November 3, 2018.  I hope you will enjoy this brief On Location Series—

oh again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
