From last week, when we stayed with our friends in Tranquility, NJ. Jim, my dearest friend Maryann's husband (M & I met in Denmark on a college program, travelled thru Europe, Greece etc), is an architect, and he spent 10 years converting the giant mill into the most imaginative clapboard 'castle'. Maryann is constantly evolving the interior design. It is a labour of love.
Speaking of love, I was at their wedding: it was at Bear Mountain lodge, and it was perfect. Andy Warhol and his friend happened to be there, while they were doing the wedding photos, and he took some. I wonder where those shots are now.
Speaking of labour: soon as I get there, as I have since their grown children were toddlers, my favourite thing is to climb onto the waterfall and 'clean it up': sweeping away the green stuff that grows, then getting on my hands and knees and rubbing the old concrete, revealing the beautiful colours as the water rushes over it. Then going for a swim. Bliss.
Speaking of bliss: still on holiday, still sunny, off to the pool. So many photos, so little time. Enjoy yours, wherever you are.
