Greeted at the door wearing a face mask with hand sanitizer. It’s hard to feel welcome. This is Rhinebeck, New York today, streets blocked to make space for merchants to bring their goods outdoors and restaurant tables out on the sidewalks.

Nature takes it’s course

The town mows this field to the edge of a small hillock that separates it from the woods that grows on the other side of a river. It’s there that Nature is allowed to do as it chooses.

Curious that on a recent trip to the garden center what I found most interesting was the roof of the greenhouse.

Milton Hall, Milton, Connecticut

A nice example of New England architecture; conservative, white, with a hint of ornamentation. This building is only a short walk from “Trinity Church” featured here on June 15, 2020.

Every time I drive past this I say a little curse at the owner of the property for leaving such an eyesore.

Lunch Break

I just happened upon this scene when all the workmen had taken a lunch break. I rather fancy the pagoda-like quality of the staging, and the way the metal planking bounced light into the shadows.

No parades this year, but a lovely afternoon to be outside and maybe wet a line in a nearby creek.

I hope you are all well.

When you hear voices*

When you hear voices what do they say?

 

Do you listen or not?

Are they whispers or shouts?

Are they questions or answers?

When you hear voices what do they say?

I needed some air!

I finally managed to get out of the house today for some fresh air and sunshine. It felt wonderful.
