Near my childhood home was a small park shaded by many eucalyptus trees. On the spur of a moment, my mother and her friend, Helen, would pack up us kids with a picnic lunch and head for the park. At 9 years old, I was “in love” with the boy across the street, Helen’s oldest son, so a picnic in the woods with my brother and Dick’s younger brother, Donny, was always a fun adventure.


I still love the muted gray color of eucalyptus leaves and remember the piney smell of the woods in the cool shade.
