Today, I went to the UU church service in the Old Stone Church.
Typically about a hundred people show up to these meetings, and I like to get there early and help set up the tables and arrange the chairs, and stand at the door and greet people. It’s light work, that’s fun and useful, and gives me a chance to practice my self training of being kind to people. The events today were a bit unusual as it was a performance for El Dia Del Muerte, (Day of the Dead) presented by some American Indians.
There was plenty of Indian-style dancing and verbal ceremony, but out of respect for their personal rights I didn’t photograph that. After the service I walked over to Dudley’s bookshop – cafe.
There is a picture of Dudley the dog on the door. He still occasionally comes by His place. I met Debbie here, and while she was reading I talked animatedly for an hour with H. about my theory of how humanity was created by talking women selecting the best men for their mates. The men they chose had the qualities we now call human. Later Debbie and I went for an evening stroll.
The graphic outline mode in my Sony CyberShot DSC – 150 has some interesting features which are fun to play with. Generally, I like straight photography, but some of these features add a visual excitement to an otherwise bland subject.
This grey fence takes on a strange quality of isolating an apparently impenetrable woods from who knows what? Us? I don’t know, but it looks morbidly pretty.
Why has this mailbox has been standing like this for a couple of weeks?
These last photos were taken on a short after sunset walk around my neighborhood. It was a fine day. We lived and lived and nothing happened.
