We drove to Vermont today to visit my sister and her husband. Going through Rouses Point I spotted this building right where Rt 11 turns to avoid dropping into the Lake Champlain. I have a fondness for old buildings anyway and this one is particularly interesting with its multiple signs overlaid on one another with varying degrees of effort at removing the prior ones, none fully successful. I was tempted to philosophize about the resulting confusion and parallels to halfhearted efforts in life but I will leave that to my readers to ponder.
If I'm to be pigeon-holed as anything I'd have to say "I'm a photographer". I didn't make my living that way (retired from a civil service job in the Dept. of Labor) but photography is the thing I have done the longest (56 years and counting) and most passionately. My degree is in fine art ceramics and I continue to have an interest in art and crafts. On a political scale I'm in the same neighborhood with Mahatma Gandhi according to politicalcompass.org but mostly politics annoy me. It seems to be about pushing your views on others. I wish we could find a way to live without politics. I am a student of religion but not a church-goer. I like being out in nature either hiking or in my canoe.
