I believe I've mentioned here before that I am in the very fortunate position to be able to walk to work every day. I live about a mile from my office, and I love the brisk walk that begins and ends my day at work.
Walking for transportation means that I get a chance to stop and smell the roses (quite literally, with all the beautiful varieties that grow in Portland), and I see little things that no driver could ever notice.
Case in point, this lovely dearly departed butterfly, who so perfectly matches my rain jacket. It's the small details like this that put a smile on my face every day.
