gary's autumn

How wonderful to experience the beauty of autumn through the eyes of a loved one! These expressive photos of Hutchins Farm,┬áin Concord Massachusetts, were taken by my brother Gary while on a shopping trip with my mom…autumn’s warm golden light served him well elevating this humble window shade and orderly row of pumpkins into glowing works of art and in the foreground, bins of aubergine tinted vegetables offered him sculptural forms and textures as only nature could provide…a simple yet soulful composition that speaks so eloquently to fall in New England…so glad I could share this with you today

Gary and mom’s shopping list:

apples

honey nut squash

scallions

cooking onions

tomatoes

raspberries

Yesterday, while en route to Concord, a large black bull caught my eye…he was just one of the many cows and bulls grazing (or reclining!) in the warm afternoon sun…what a picturesque sight to behold!

“At evening, the distant lowing of some cow in the horizon beyond the woods sounded sweet and melodious, and at first I would mistake it for the voices of certain minstrels by whom I was sometimes serenaded, who might be straying over hill and dale; but soon I was not unpleasantly disappointed when it was prolonged into the cheap and natural music of the cow. I do not mean to be satirical, but to express my appreciation of those youths’ singing, when I state that I perceived clearly that it was akin to the music of the cow, and they were at length one articulation of Nature.” ~ Henry David Thoreau, excerpt from Walden, chapter four titled Sounds

old north bridge

There is something quite magical about Concord’s Old North Bridge. More than just a beautiful landscape drenched in history, it has the power to calm and soothe the senses. Yesterday’s trip to Concord was a perfect day filled with family, beauty and serenity.

The opening stanza from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s legendary Concord Hymn:

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,

Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,

Here once the embattled farmers stood

And fired the shot heard ’round the world.
