^ Except for the time of day, this could be ...

Earth has not any thing to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

Walking In Malden

Sunday, September 20, 2020

After my brief hangover passed me by, I went for a walk Sunday afternoon.  It was beautiful out.  As I approach the baseball diamond on the corner of Bryant and Cross Streets, I?m instantly transported back in time to my junior high years at Lincoln School, which used to be only feet away until it was demolished. 

The sight of the grass and the clouds are beautiful as I continue to the walking path, seating area and school markers.  Passing them I see flowers at the corner of Cross and Henry Streets, where, in 2015 I lived for 20 months. 

Funny where life leads you, whether you choose the path or not.  2015 was not a move by choice but 2020 is.  I don?t plan on being where I just located to forever.  It?s a gamble, a roll of the dice I had to take because my instinct and gut told me it was the right thing to do, and the right time.

This week, Mars is as close to us as it will be for 15 years -- and during a full moon it is quite a sight. Check it out tonight, if you can. It actually looks a lot closer to the moon than this zoomed in image makes it appear.

This is the first I've heard about Mars being visible. I did notice the moon, of course, when I was out a little bit ago.

And that photo is great!

Nothing spectacular, just inspired to write down the first thoughts that came to me that morning.

God, January 9, 2021

I look out the window this morning and bear witness to God?s presence.  It?s in the wind, gently breezing through the trees.  It?s in the little squirrel I see scurry by.  It?s on the ground with all of His creations.  It?s in the beautiful blue sky as I cherish memories of Ma and Dad, Uncle Fred, Uncle Johnny, my grandparents and friend, Mike Sormanti.  I am humbled and happy, and thank God for another day.

I posted some pictures from West Virginia's New River Gorge a few years back when I visited. This is one of the most gorgeous places I've ever been. I noticed that this area is our nation's newest designated National Park!

Driving just beyond this toward PA, I stopped to get this pic:



This was taken before I got my Nikon (all around better camera and lenses). So, I needed a little extra photoshopping to make these pics pop. I'm always concerned I over-photoshop, and try not to go too overboard. Lately one of my biggest pet peeves are overly photoshopped images that enlarge the moon or just really distort the subject in some way where it's more art than photo. I just try to get each image to look as beautiful in a shot as it is in person.
