Goose Girl And Border Collie

goose-girl-and-shepherd-dog-free-license-CC0Spring rides no horses down the hill,
But comes on foot, a goose-girl still.
And all the loveliest things there be
Come simply, so, it seems to me.
If ever I said, in grief or pride,
I tired of honest things, I lied:
And should be cursed forevermore
With Love in laces, like a whore,
And neighbours cold, and friends unsteady,
And Spring on horseback, like a lady!

By Edna St. Vincent Millay

Dirty Snow

March 19 2015

March 20 is to be the first day of Spring, but here in the Boston area, and doesn’t have the feel of a new season set to begin, as it has and still is windy as all hell, with wind chill factors at times in the teens. Also, there is snow to arrive on Friday, and in some places it could be a plowable one.

Making Room For New Buildings

March 7 2015

Several buildings are being razed, and will be replaced with new ones. The building just above the man with the hard hat on, was a Woolworth’s Store, which sat empty since 1989. There never was a taker for the property. Sad.

With another foot of snow expected to be dumped on Eastern Massachusetts, between now and late Sunday, you can imagine how much taller the snow banks will be.
