A blog, mostly about my work making Jewish ritual objects, but with detours into garment making, living in New York City, cooking and other aspects of domestic life.
Some scenes from a low key vacation
This is where we are spending the rest of the week. I did my morning stretch while looking at this view. Not a bad way to start the day. I have always loved how the curve of the shore and the verticals of the skinny pines always make for a perfectly composed landscape. I don't know if the rest of the pond creates such perfect views but our view is beyond compare. What you are missing is the auditory element of this photograph. This pond is a loon preserve. You need to hear the plaintive warble of the loons as you look at the image.
And now, for something completely different.....
Yesterday, my youngest showed me his favorite thing to do with a Tootsie-Roll. Yes, it is repulsive. But I expect nothing less from an adolescent boy.
