the daily commute – 01.31.12

I snapped this picture as I was driving walking to my desk  - it’s still an unusual and incredible feeling NOT traveling 60 miles a day to and from the office.   Jamie says I should re-name the ‘daily commute’ segment since I’m not technically commuting everyday now but since I’m a bit sentimental I &hellip Continue reading »

the daily commute – 01.17.11

It is days like yesterday that I am so greatful for this new working arrangment – we were under a winter storm warning and I didn’t have to sit at my desk all day and wonder whether I’d be better off risking the ‘hills by bills’ or going slow with the yahoo’s hitting their breaks on 31 &hellip Continue reading »

  Today’s commute was very hecktic! I put my boots on with my robe and took this picture on my front porch!

“He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; He suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the water in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.  He covers the face of the full moon spreading His clouds over it.  The pillars of the Heavens quake against his rebuke.  By His &hellip Continue reading »

the daily commute – 11.11.11

If only that were a real buck.  I can sympathize with Jeff Daniels wife in ‘Escanaba in da Moonlight’ living with a buck-less yooper.  I am living with a buckless bow-hunter and everyday that passes and we draw ever closer to November 15th, he grows grumpier and more agitated, like a bride in Filene’s Basement without &hellip Continue reading »

the daily commute – 11.09.11

My mother has a way of seeing the beauty in the environment on the grayest of days and in the most dismal of months - I used to see a field of grasses on a damp November morning and think -uck- nothing about this day is salvageable or even remotely worth a second glance, but now I’m seeing things &hellip Continue reading »

the daily commute – 11.04.11

The past two days have been amazing – mid 50′s, sunny and dry, and for those who live in the north country we know that this is a gift to be savored since all too soon we’ll be traveling through greasy slosh…knuckles as white as the snow we’ll be shoveling for the next 8 months!
