Alchemy is the ancient "science" of turning mundane elements into gold. For a long time many people (including Sir Isaac Newton) believed it was just a matter of time before they had success. As far as I know, it has never worked. Except maybe it has.
Falling into Autumn
So short, but so glorious. Autumn in New England is an amazing time. Even though I've been a bit creatively stymied I'm out more than ever just to be there.

Water, Water, Everywhere!
This year has been one of seriously heavy rain here in New England. Luckily where I live we escaped serious flooding, but still our rivers, brooks and streams are very high. Good for one thing - waterfalls!! Recently I took a good friend of mine to see some near me and got some decent shots.... Continue Reading →
