what gods hath wrought

A kid who makes such things put up a video tour of the rail trail…this is the thing i spent the last 4 years of my life building.  Doesn’t look like much, but what was there when i started was weeds and steel.   There are still weeds but they aren’t in the middle of […]

what kind of season is this otto?

I spied this puddle/pond out on the Danvers rail trail today…and I was dumbfounded…apparently mother nature doesn’t know that this is supposed to be JANU-FUCKING-WARY. Since we had that freak October snowstorm that kicked the crap out of New England we never did get a decent winter. Any snow fall hasn’t lasted more than a […]

into the woods

Went for a morning hike along the rail trail this morning…warm and foggy morning…i was mildly perturbed…i had a small flask of butterscotch schnapps flopping pointlessly in my pocket…i was banking on a winter nip in the air. alas nothing doing…just fog and lichen. The rail trail may get constructed this winter…apparently a frozen ground […]
