A new home, a new town, a new start. I crunched through the forest near my new house, exploring the area. The mid-spring sun was fighting the clouds that threatened to smother it, just as the scent of wild garlic piquantly smothered me. On a tree was stuck a note, so I wandered over and read it. "Look north, south, east and west." So I did. And there it was. Freedom was staring right at me.
