OK I’ve enjoyed posting some photos for Halloween.

If you’re a “regular viewer”, thank you for indulging me, and I promise to simulate maturity for the rest of the year.

Probably posting a bit less for a while, my one-man PR campaign for Upstate New York will be on hold – –

Moving to Boston for six months, perhaps longer, starting a new job, which I expect will require total focus.

New job, new town.  Remembering lots of new names, figuring out the commute, where to get groceries.

There’s a Whole Foods across the street, expensive, and I cannot bring myself to disturb the produce displays,

it would be like vandalizing an art installation.

New language, too – – what is “scrod” and is that the same thing as “wicked pissah,” etc.

I’m looking forward to all the great museums, musical venues, and galleries.

Already learned that the Boston streets are an ironic art installation all their own, designed by M.C. Escher.

But I will, of course, continue to read everyone else’s posts, could not get by without that!  🙂



Halloween, photography

trick or treat, please go ’round to the back door

    Deliciously dark as the imperial stout I just drained and the ’73 Eno record that’s cracking and hissing on the fire now! Ha! Go on with your bad self Robert!

  2. It’s the little splotch of red there to the right that gets the mind wandering. Somehow, I don’t think that’s a squashed Snickers bar…. Maybe it’s red licorice.

    Boston? Good for you. I hope it’s a great experience, and enjoyable work. You’ve got to post every now and then, though, just to let us know you’re alive and kicking. I know a good bit about historical Boston, but hardly anything about the city today. It ought to be a great place to live.

  3. I suspect that before you know it you’ll have posted some photos here of some interesting place or thing or gallery or creature or person (or who knows what?) that you’ve found in Boston. Good luck with your move and your new job.

  4. Boston’s a great historic city, so you should find plenty of interesting things ones you settle in and get acclimatized. You’ll also have a nearby ocean to play with now. Happy new, as my wife likes to say.

    My father used to order scrod at one of the many diners on Long Island.

    Did you know that Whole Foods began in Austin? I shopped at the original store from 1980 onward, then occasionally at each of the two nearby places the main store moved to over the years. Other Austin branches later opened, one of which is just 2 miles from my house.

    • I spent most of last weekend in the MFA Mus. of Fine Arts, that’s a pretty impressive place. That’s interesting about Whole Foods, I’d heard of it, of course, but it’s a new chain to me, I’ve never shopped in one before. They’re very interesting stores, with really informative labeling, although a bit more expensive than regular markets, I think. I’m looking forward to being near the ocean & seeing all the colonial sites, etc.

  5. Sorry I’m so late getting here, and best of luck on the new job, which you’ve started by now. Also on figuring Boston out – yeah, god luck with that! (Are you in academia? My brother-in-law is in Phil at Boston College.)

    • Thank you, things are going well so far. No, not in academia, but sorta tangentially – – a really pleasant organization that sets up and administers overseas internships for college students. I’m hoping to work in “study abroad”
