You might remember "The Red Chair" (and Red Chair Redux) and the waterfall in my back yard. Various people ask from time to time if I would revisit the subject, or motif as I guess it would better be called. On the brilliantly clear and brightly sunny backside of Winter Storm Stella, which by the way takes the prize for the quintessential, archetypal beautiful Winter snowstorm, from the vantage point of my little acre and two-thirds—it was a real, and rare, treat—the waterfall is entirely frozen over and has fallen silent. It's even covered with snow.
I don't neglect the red chair, but in blustery weather (we had a windstorm about ten days ago of sufficient force that I lost shingles off the roof of the house and had to have the roof of the covered patio replaced), it repeatedly catches the wind and topples forward. I set it right again and it blows over in the night. That's the silent waterfall in the background.
Sorry again for the truncated week. I'll be back in the saddle ready to go on Monday. Hope you have a nice weekend—
