Tree Trunk from Gnarlyland Boosts the Walk Score

In between writing about liability insurance and working on an essay about the vagaries of facial hair, Jackie Chan and I darted out for a twenty minute walk during a break in the gray. As someone who is contemplating moving, I have been reading about walk scores, which seem to relate to the proximity of restaurants, shops, and other services.  I don’t score my walks or hikes, but if I did, features like this tree would boost a score.  The trunk seemed as if it had almost been formed to be deformed.  I could picture it as a character in a fantasy film, warning passersby of the evil that lurks beyond…  Jackie was obviously not all that impressed.   I thought it was, well,  gnarly, dude.   Walk score: 90.

With the first day of spring, Jackie Chan has lots of hope for a rebirth

  1. Hi, this is about the double spacing in your poem. Same thing happened to me and you have to press ‘shift’ then return to create single spacing. Hope this works for you :)
