The Yellow Umbrella

Rainy Day Boston

Today is terrible–cold, rainy and seriously depressing. Going down Beacon Street to get a cup of coffee, Sarah’s yellow umbrella was the only cheerful thing I saw.

Spring

Rain, rain and more rain soaks us, yet the colors of spring turn the gloom into glory.

“Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,

hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees”….Rilke



Digital Detox

There always but ALWAYS is this damn digital addiction in our pocket or purse. It’s just got to be cut back. I’m speaking for myself of course but my guess is I’m onto a problem that you have too. I’ve deleted Twitter today and am trying to get my courage up to delete Instagram as well.

There You Are!

Pizza Man Portrait

He seemed like a nice guy and rather wistful. He had to prepare an order for 15 pizzas before they opened for business today. His early order for tomorrow is 75!

Red and Yellow

Yes it’s a subway station and yes a train is just pulling out of the platform across the way but looking at it more abstractly it’s a series of red verticals juxtaposed with a curving yellow line. No people, no action, just color and lines.
