Darks and Lights

Grey day yesterday at The Pines. And Sunny too. I’ll skip the platitude about the quick changes in weather … I’m sure you all know it.

In local news – Did you know that Nathan is riding his bike across the country coast-to-coast to raise money for the Nature Conservancy? He is. And he’s mighty cool too. He’s coming through the Adirondacks, and should be in Tupper Lake right about … now. Any like-minded nature-loving conservation folks over there that would like to visit with him, just let me know and I’ll pass the word. Or you can Twitter him at @follownathan.

100_0766In the weather column – It started out rainy at six this morning, warm bright sun about eleven or noon, and a few chapters-worth of thunderstorms this afternoon. Perfect weather for the garden! Rufus and I took a stroll about our meager property – Why is he so well behaved in the neighbor’s yard, but runs around willynilly at home? Takes three shouts to get him to listen. All in good time, I guess. He was particularly interested in the new vegetable garden. I’m assuming the lure was the scent of horse manure, as opposed to the interesting seed labels.

100_0765We stuck in the cabin this afternoon and waited out the rain in style. I played the piano a bit – mostly hymns from the Methodist Hymnal. Don’t have much music with me right now, so I stuck with the hymnody, a few musical theatre tunes from memory, and some of my score from the Edgar Allan Poe thing that I wrote. Interesting how I really soaked into the music like never before. I’m going to attribute it to rain on the roof, pleasant surroundings, and Adirondack Magic. In fact, it gave me an idea … Maybe write some new Adirondack inspired music and record a CD. I mean, I have all the equipment, and I could do it right here from the sheddycabin.

You know, I might just do that just to do it. And I promise I won’t name it something twee like “Adirondack Reflections” or somesuch.

You have a great day too!
