Halloween done perfectly (Piermont part one)

Playing tourist yesterday in a quaint New York town on the Hudson River, I saw this inviting display outside of a store. I’m not a fan of scary decorations, artificial cobwebs (since I work hard to get rid of real ones), or anything with blood & gore. This embodies my idea of Halloween. πŸŽƒ πŸ§‘πŸŒΌπŸŽƒπŸ§‘πŸŒΌ

Walking and talking (poetry in nature)

Walking and talking

enjoying the path,

enjoying the cool fall air,

the leaves filtering daylight

colors and light changing with each step.

Stopping by the creek

listening to the water

listening to your description

of whirling water followed by calm

a metaphor for life

But mostly enjoying the company

Wish You Were Here

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love the library and getting a library card is always my first stop when I move to a new town. In the suburbs of Chicago were I lived for many years, my friends joked it was my version of “Cheers!” Meaning it’s the place where everybody knows my name.

The Boulder Colorado Library has a beautiful gallery space which features a new exhibit every month or six weeks. Currently on display is the handmade sweater exhibit called “Wish You Were Here.” These are a few of my favorites in the exhibit. I’m a frequent visitor to the library so I’ve seen this exhibit in solitude, with wool spinners gathered for a demonstration, and crowded during planned events. I’m sorry it will be leaving soon, but I look forward to what’s next.
