"In Praise of Older Buildings"

Ingredients list

My trusted four-wheeled companion Blanche.

Fascinating old buildings anxious to reveal their secrets.

Silence and solitude.

Sun and warmth.

An historic river in spring flood.


A sun-warmed stone wall on which to spend a half-hour watching the river run.

And a story to sleuth out for my esteemed editor.

And across the charging Moira, its feet stalwart in the current, silhouetted against dark pines, a tree bursts into flower, while I watch.

All the ingredients for a perfect April afternoon.
