Park Scenes that Inspired Finnegan’s Quest

Finnegan's_Quest_Cover_for_Kindle

Now available in paperback.

When I hike in the park, I think of  Finnegan’s Quest.

Fall swept grass

 The story takes place in the fall.   The grass is dry, windswept.

The wild grape leaves are bright.

The sycamore ‘s leaves are like fingers pointing in the same direction.

The Western sycamore, featured in Finnegan’s Quest, is wild, and tall.  It’s not at all disciplined like the European sycamore trees (plane trees) that line avenues and stand like soldiers at alert.   Finnegan’s sycamore perches on its own roots as if they are legs.

It invites many creatures to live in it.

    Hello,

    This is impressive.

    I clicked on comments and was taken to your blog plus I see there are archives. From a lack of material from you I am now loaded with lots. My notebook computer with its internet is now a “horn of plenty”. Not very familiar with the term, but I seem to be drowning in an abundance of information now. I can see I have some catch up work to do. I feel a bit like good old uncle scrooge diving into a swimming pool filled with money. Looks like some fun to be had.

    love

    Brian
