memorial day in brattleboro

 a lone trumpeter played a medley of melancholy tunes
wild bill gyrated on emerson's loading platform
the town swayed to the spirited melodies of these young musicians

my silence was

the result of a fascinating trip to mars...
lift off was from the roger williams natural history museum in providence, r.i.

ceaselessly redecorated by the wind

ocean city, maryland

the wind bullied the nearly deserted beach
but these two intrepid walkers bundled up and strode the strand.

a day in the life of brattleboro--parting shot

i'll end this series 
with a view of the iconic creamery bridge.
not her most flattering photo but the best i could manage on that sullen april afternoon.

a day in the life of brattleboro--would not be complete without a trip to the grocery store

i've brought local apples for each of you.
 they've been over-wintering in the cool dark and have just emerged for your eating pleasure.

a day in the life of brattleboro--allard's sawmill

on old ferry road.
i watched, mesmerized, as bark was peeled from trees
and sawdust piled up in fragrant hills.
