All the news that’s fit to print.



hazel flower retreat meadows nov 2015With thanks to Robert Frost, a fellow dweller in these parts:

I have climbed the hills of view

And looked at the world, and descended:

I have come by the highway home,

And lo, it is ended.


Silent Sky

fuller park brattleboroQuiet drifts over the bandstand at Fuller Park, its glory days of one-hundred-twenty years ago long echoed away…

The leader of the band is tired

And his eyes are growing old

But his blood runs through my instrument

And his song is in my soul.

From Dan Fogelberg’s The Innocent Age 1981



Bridge Passed

night bridge to Hinsdale


Four short months ago and a world away: late night on a Connecticut River bridge.

Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey, and yellow, white,
but we decide which is right,
and which is an illusion.

from The Day Begins, on The Moody Blues “Days of Future Passed” (1967)
