A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Steward of the Pascal Emory house, an 1871 Second-Empire Victorian; of Sylvie, a 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL; and of Taz, a purebred Cockador who sets the standard for her breed. Happy enough for the present in Massachusetts, but always looking East.

Just Another Day in the Neighborhood

With my company gone, I've resumed my visits to the YMCA. My usual routine is to swim a mile one day, and work out in the fitness center on the next. The Y is less than a mile from my house, so I usually walk over. I consider the walk part of my routine.

Tonight, coming home, I spotted this interesting sight on Chestnut Street, within sight of the YMCA's building. Cruisers and unmarked police cars hemmed in a couple of beatup vehicles. Two women and two men, all handcuffed, huddled in the street, surrounded by cops.

Just another day in the neighborhood.
