Took a friend out for a drive Sunday to no particular destination, and for no particular purpose than to distract from a tough anniversary. This pond off a dusty dirt road presented a perfect meditative moment: a landing pad for three flocks of #CanadianGeese. Two flocks caught here taking off after their social stopover. #ConnectingFlights #The100DayProject #Day98/100 #creativelife100ways100days #ephemeral #nature #goldenrod #witnessing #wistful #fall #friendship #countrylife #sullivancounty #sullivancountyny at Fremont Center, New York

Today's experiment for the #The100DayProject is a 1946 home entertaining trick. Soak #sugarcubes in #brandy and light them atop a festive #dessert. Result: #flambefail notwithstanding forty percent alcohol and three to five minutes of soaking. #trythisathome and tell me #whatwentwrong. #The100DayProject #Day96/100 #creativelife100ways100days

Today’s theme for #The100DayProject: #PeachPreserves and self-tutoring of broader perspectives about #RaceinAmerica.  While making preserves today from peaches picked from a tree in our backyard before the crows got them, I listened to this playlist of #TEDTalks that aim “to help you understand racism in America.” https://www.ted.com/playlists/250/talks_to_help_you_understand_r I have a lot to learn yet, and learned a lot from these stories of what it’s like to be in someone else’s skin.  A worthy investment of your time.  At the very least, try to listen to my favs (in descending order) on this playlist:   #ClintSmith #RichBenjamin (humor!) #BryanStevenson   #JamesAWhiteSr #VernaMyers #MellodyHobson #Day95/100 #creativelife100ways100days #selfexpansion trying to get #woke

My school librarian lived in this house. She raised and graduated a son here, well before she taught me the Dewey Decimal System. She used to collect our Second Grade class in a corner of the library and read us “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” Each voice she performed in a loud whisper so as to model proper library etiquette. On summer break she sat in a rocking chair on her porch in a patch of sunlight, reading a book. Or at art events I might see her out with friends; the company she kept seemed to be a sort of underground intelligentsia. Last year I ran into her and thanked her for endeavoring to instill within me a love of literature, at a time before I learned to manage my attention, chronic impulse to talk, or keeping my hands to my self. A debilitating fall prompted her to move closer to her son in the midwest recently. Passing by her home, I feel a pang of sorrow. I still sense her spirit on that porch, in that sunny rocking chair.  How one’s home and picket fence can slip into ruin, as does all that persisted for so long. #The100DayProject #Day94/100 #creativelife100ways100days #remembering #librarians

Odd juxtaposition = misinterpretation. If you want to attract foot traffic and you're at the #waynecountyfair in #waynecountypa, "put a gun on it," said this booth staffer. Upon closer inspection, the guns are raffle prizes; not intended to be used in the war on heroin. #The100DayProject #Day87/100 #creativelife100ways100days #guns #heroin #heroinprevention #heroinepidemic #merchandisingdont at Wayne County Fair
