These guys are staying in practice or have a sense of humor … or both.

Ahh, the hometown – where I spent the first 18 years of my life. Three thousand people living there then, and now.

Here’s the main intersection (looking NNE) with the Town Hall and the war memorials, including the new one for WWII veterans.

“Westside Pride”, the unit shown here, (small town minimalism to be sure), was one of sixty that came out to march on this Memorial Day, and the rain held off till later in the day.

Gravestones, Newfane, VT

April 27, 2017

The gravestones of David, Mary and Joseph Merrifield in the Newfane Hill Cemetery; they passed away in the early part of the 19th century.

O dear one, don’t be proud of color and beauty, Death is standing on your head.” (from a hymn by Sant Ajaib Singh Ji, 1926-1997)

I remember that evening in the small one room cabin, probably an old sugaring house in another life. A wood stove kept us warm. It was late winter.

Four, maybe six of us, tucked into the “living room”, communing with spirits that rose up in the stories and songs and laughter we shared deep into the night.

We were young, and locked in tight to “being here now”. Who knew the season would pass? Who knew there would be other, different ones, to follow? Who knew back then there was a future?

Bookcase, Wilmington, VT

Meanwhile, on the other side of the living room: a rustic bookcase with classic editions of English literature. I never actually opened any; the muted colors of the bindings were enough on this day.
