All About the Light

I recently did a 3-day drive from Vermont to Colorado to be in the Rocky Mountain snow for the holidays. I know, I know, there are airplanes that will do the same trip in just a few hours but I like driving across our country and reacquainting myself with the ever-changing landscape. Three days in […]

  This is an essay from my friend Brenda Berry. I am sharing it here because I think it is important and beautifully written. Please indulge me and read it.

Twilight

Tis the season when our thoughts turn indoors and sugar plum fairies dance merrily on our photoshop keyboards. We really can’t be blamed. It’s cold outside!

His name was Arthur Cooper, although it seemed most people in the bar called him simply Cooper.  He was an older gentleman, in his 90’s I figured, dressed as a solid New Englander- a checked, button down, LL Bean shirt with a beige cardigan and worn brown slacks- neat but nothing fancy.  You would call […]

On a Walk in Venice

Posted by on Nov 4, 2012 in Articles | No Comments

I’m in Venice now. The train arrived last night, got to my hotel room at 9:30, in bed by 10pm. Sunrise is at 7am so at 7:15 I was out wandering the streets of Venice. I didn’t go out earlier because the streets were too murky and since I didn’t have any twilight intentions and […]
