A Step Back in Time

Although Concord, Massachusetts, is only around 17 miles from downtown Boston it feels like a different world. My friend, Jason, and I went for a drive today. My original goal was to take pictures of the foliage, but it was cloudy all day and the colors weren’t all that spectacular. It also didn’t help that peak was apparently a week ago – based on the brightly colored leaves already carpeting the ground.

Still, we explored the burial grounds of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott and other literary luminaries as well as other Revolutionary War sites. All of the pictures can be found in my Karl’s Photo Gallery link at the top right. The album is, appropriately enough, called Concord Autumn. It’s so fascinating that we were just miles from Boston and in all of the photos I took you can only see on building.

I’ve got a busier day planned for tomorrow when I’m getting together with two friends for lunch and then planning to visit my brother and niece at the hospital. She was admitted back into the hospital a day early because of complications with her stomache/feeding tubes. I’m not sure if this will delay surgery or not. Sigh.

Anyway, check out the pictures I took today. It’s always comforting to know that with all the pain and sadness that can occur in your daily life, there’s always beauty to be found somewhere nearby.
