Nipponzan Myohoji Sangha Peace Pagoda, Leverett, MA

a calming sunday visit to one of only two peace pagodas in the united states in leverett massachusetts.  Posted by Picasa
a beautiful, calming sancuary on a mountain side. with goldfish pond and rock garden. but volunteers (and money) are needed for the completion of their temple.
i would highly recommend a visit. the only other peace pagoda in the united states is in grafton, new york.

forest hills cemetary, jamaica plain, ma

this is a marker for e.e. cummings in the forest hills cemetary in jamaica plain. it is made from a large tree trunk, and on the inside there is a poem of his...also hidden on the inside of the trunk is a small plastic bag with three e.e. cummings books, which are a strange find in a cemetary on a dreary sunday evening. Posted by Picasa

the arnold arboretum, jamaica plain, ma

you absolutely cannot come to the boston area without visiting the arnold arboretum in jamaica plain...and unfortunately, i've known people to live here for years without ever taking the time to trek over to jp and visit. it is possible the most comforting place i've found here...summer, spring, winter and fall. Posted by Picasa

i want all of these colors on my walls... Posted by Picasa

goodbye summer... Posted by Picasa

mark kozelek vs. isaac brock

i have to say that i was apprehensive, to say the least, when i heard that mark kozelek would be covering modest mouse songs on the new sun kil moon album. but now, that i've heard a few tracks (and always having been a fan of mr.kozelek, as well as mr.brock), i am much too impressed not to post about it.
if you're a fan of either band, or you're just looking for some good solid, melancholy music for the coming winter, check the album out:
