The Younger Generation

These two pumpkins were sitting in a Beacon Hill entryway as I clumped down to Charles Street to buy our Sunday Papers. I initially thought I would title this image “Mother and Child” or “Still life with Pumpkins”. Those titles probably would have worked OK but I think the current one works better.

Society is always at a time when the young start replacing the old in leadership positions. That transition is particularly relevant in today’s fractious political climate. I fervently hope that those who will lead this nation in the years to come take their increasing responsibility VERY seriously.

And you thought this post was only about a photograph of pumpkins!

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.
