To those of you fellow citizens who awoke to a grey sky this morning. . .
if you had been up at 5:30, you would have seen the glorious sky known as the "pink - blue sky" to the east, above Wantastiquet.
It only lasts a short time, but it is a good sight for the eyes that have just come out of the dark and from sleep into the day.
It also reminds me of an idea I had for a photo excursion. In the winter, I frequently suffer from the blahs; the dark crowds in on me, and the cold saps me some. I have taken to going out, when I am in a bad mood, and trying to find beauty. Just the activity of trying to find moments and scenes of beauty, is restorative to my feeling of well being.
So, this is an invitation, delivered months in advance. "Winter is coming" When it does arrive, I would enjoy, as a semi regular thing, say, once a month maybe, or maybe twice, to go out with the express intention of finding beauty in the greater Brattleboro metropolitan region, framing it, and brining it back to share with Brattleboro and the world, via iBrattleboro. I envision getting a cup of coffee with others first, and then setting out, and coming back together to share what we found. Beauty is always out there, and always needed. It's just needed more at some times of the year than others.
Anyone else interested?
