I started this Block Island visit with a daily blog, which lasted about three days. Since then I’ve relaxed into my version of a Block Island Schedule. Up for coffee and the Ithaca Journal; meditate (Centering Prayer); walk or ride to breakfast: work on new art; have some lunch: take a ride on my tricycle; have dinner with Tim; go to bed early; get up, and repeat. I’ve collected pictures along the way, but there’s no plot! So I’ve held off on the next blog installment. Without any special explanation of what happened when, here is a summary of the last few days (in pictures.)
Along with art I’m continuing my study of the history of Six Mile Creek in Tompkins County. For a real page turner, I recommend Epidemic by David DeKok. It’s the story of a typhoid epidemic in Ithaca in 1903—a history lesson still appropriate for today’s world.
