Winter begins

The initial snow was serious. This was the front yard after only a couple of minutes.

Looking down the bay.

Looking up the tracks - the opposite direction I normally walk.

The lake disappears in the snow.

God provides birdfood.

Silent Movie Music

This is a group of Erie Chamber Orchestra musicians who play music from the silent movie era. Barnes and Noble isn't the greatest venue because the sight gags don't work in a setting where people come and go. The ECO provides free, usually SRO, monthly concerts in Erie as well as workshops in schools and other events.

Life moves forward

I feel sad for people who live in a world where everything is restricted to black and white, right and wrong, true and false. Whose opinion is fact. Who can see only one way, one road, one path with no possible deviation. Who must always go back rather than deal with the present and look forward to the future. They are motivated by fear. They are tragic and we have far too many of them today. Thank God for faith which enables us to keep going. To make the best of a situation. To look for the good. To strive for peace and justice. To look back only to learn. To keep going forward.

Walk on another dreary day

Looking down the bay.
Looking in the other direction. No, those are not ducks. They are decoys. They are there for many weeks.
The hunters sit on the bench barely visible at the bottom of the path in this photo.
The storm felled a tree over the "tracks".
This is ignored. The ATV and snowmobile people will remove the tree and the many fallen branches as soon as we have a significant snow. Maybe before if the snow is late.
(all embiggenable)

St. Augustine of Canterbury - 11.17.13

Great sermon this morning about change and how we must embrace it. Very appropriate for me. Enjoyed sitting with "old" musician friends. Friendly people. Happy experience.
