The gravel makes noise and gets into my shoes, walking on the dirt raises unpleasant dust, and there just isn't a length of pavement in the yard that's long enough. So I walk on the dried lawn. I can smell it faintly as my feet crush it. It's not an unpleasant smell. My walking path takes me along the jasmine-covered fence, and the scent of dry grass smell mingles with the slight hint of jasmine from the few surviving blossoms. It smells like autumn creeping up on summer. I spend twenty minutes going back and forth and end up nowhere but closer to September. But then I've always been doing that.
