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

Smith ’69, Purdue ’75. Anarchist; agnostic. Writer. 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.

Downtown Secret

Here's a building I've always liked, home to a local locksmith. It's A. W. Gifford, Inc. on Lyman Street in Springfield. For those that don't know Springfield, Lyman Street is the last place you'd think to find anything interesting.

I've always liked that building too but wondered is it actually of that era or is it a more modern repro? What do you know?
