Harvest, A Street & A Bookcase





The photos I’ve chosen for this post all represent life in my town and home at the moment. It is harvest time for the corn. I will miss the smell of the corn fields as I drive by. It is a great smell and one I find equally comforting and intoxicating. As I watched the planes fly in formation at this past weekend airport day in my town I turned around to watch traffic go by on Route 50. At one point there were three combines traveling westbound heading to more fields to harvest. When you purchase a home or property in my county you have to sign paperwork stating you understand you are moving to farm country with its noises and smells. I think nothing of pulling to the side of the road to let the combines pass but friends who visit question what I’m doing. I’ve always wanted to drive a combine. It’s on my bucket list.

I included one of the streets where I walk dogs and travel most every day. It’s one of my favorites. I love the architecture and there is a church that has the best sayings on its sign. Sometimes there are quotes by Rumi, Mother Teresa, Buddha, Helen Keller and sometimes the bible. I enjoy my towns open spaces, quaint streets and proximity to major cities, DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia. It is a good town for walking. I currently live on the outskirts of toke but enjoy it immensely. I’m curious to see what NYC thinks about my little town.

The bookcase photo I included is actually the first thing you see when you open my front door. Books are a huge part of my life. I was excited to purchase fourteen this past weekend for $21.00. All but two were hardcovers and the last two were Agatha Christie mysteries. And just to close out with a little silliness I love the esurance candy crush commercial. I laugh every time and I really like the geico auctioneers make bad grocery store clerks commercial.

    You mentioned Baltimore — next time you are in Baltimore, go into the Polish church on South Chester Street — the Holy Rosary Church. I was visiting there and took a walk in my friend’s neighborhood. The door was open so I walked in. It’s magnificent. You don’t see architecture like that (up here in NH). It’s worth a visit.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and pictures, I enjoy your blog!

Rising Over the Smoke

Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man 
as different from yourselves.... 
See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, 
for love and unity come hard 
 when ye fix your gaze on otherness. ~Baha'i
