Patapsco

Located 40 minutes west of Baltimore towards Ellicot City.

Patapsco Ran past fields of tree stumps, chopped down to the ground by beavers, with the precision and shape of freshly sharpened pencils; family of deer with fluffy white tails akin to giant rabbits; piles of leaves covering rocks, roots, and trails; apparently a shooting range and hunting ground.  The gunshots interrupted the quiet peace; nevertheless, the rhythm that I remember sounds of leaves falling, birds singing, legs leaping, and lungs breathing.
