Tomorrow, we're leaving for our three week long Really Big Lakes camping trip: the Great Lakes, Lake Winnipeg and the Finger Lakes. I've decided that, although I'll still take at least a picture a day (one some days, prolly a hundred!), I won't be posting them until we get back. Internet access will be spotty; but more than that, John and I want to focus on the experience and on each other. We found out not long ago that he's had a recurrence of the prostate cancer we thought had been removed and done with three years ago.

It has taken a lot of time and emotional energy to come to terms with this. His prognosis is very good, but he'll be having radiation treatments when we get back. That's why I haven't been browsing through what I like to think of as our 365 Museum and commenting on your wonderful photos. It's been my loss, because seeing the incredible work you generate has been a priceless learning experience and a delight to my heart.

When we get back, I promise to do my best to catch up on all your creativity...and, eventually, I'll make good on my own commitment. For now, I want to thank you for sharing your gifts and vision. It's been an honor and an inexpressible pleasure to be part of this experience with you.


Stew Leonard's is a big specialty grocery store here in New England--lots of fresh foods, so we go there nearly every weekend. Dinner for the week is what's on sale at Stew's. This bee found dinner at Stew's, too, from one of the sunflowers being sold in the garden department. I don't like to use the same filter two days in a row, but Poster Edges just worked to bring out all the details.

Most of the human beings in our area are quite disheartened by the incessant rain and cloudy weather. Mushrooms, on the other hand, are thriving. Poster Edges gives a bit of a Peter Max touch to this one.

As we were leaving the Trinity carillon concert this evening, we passed this amost Victorian scene of low light and old buildings. Diffuse Glow made the most of the play of light and shadow.
