A Hike in the Woods
Greetings All... and a long return! As many readers know, I haven't posted for a long while, but am slowly catching up. For those interested, I did start another blog already a year ago, The Traveling Schubert Society, which follows more musical interests, curiosities, reviews, and intrigues! The blog is constantly evolving and includes entries as disparate as academic discussions of Schubertian history, reviews of NYC concerts, regional composer profiles, an occasional recounting of Upper West Side salons and house parties (even Schubertiades!), as well as nature and street sounds. If you're interested, please visit the site and see what we're up to.
Today, though, I wanted to go through some of my photo archives and retrieve a few items of interest, mostly images and bookish stories I've done over the last year or so. I'll be brief for now, as I hope to catch up and provide more entries this month.
Below, you'll find a curiosity, a geo-cache--at least, that's what I presume it to be. Last spring, if I remember correctly, I'd taken a walk with my mother on the east side of the Hudson, near Bard College, and walking upon the path in a pine grove, near the river, she discovered a plastic box, which contained various objects, including some books. Though, the main book was a journal of sorts, where travelers in this wood could write comments or leave sentimental items. We did look, and found some very interesting things. But soon, we packed it and closed the box, and returned it to its tree interior... and continued on our lovely walk.
You never know what you'll find, then, in these woods, or any other...
