There are three themes to what I have to say here, Photographic Art, verbal and visual commentary and a sense of home. Norwich Ct is my current residence or home. All become metaphors for my work.
I Found Home Today In Norwich
Early morning light through the square
New work on the Thayer Building and the new Otis Library
People may continue to read
“Feines” Mocca’s Pains KCs Quiet
A polish girl, a long walk, stroll
I found home today in the late day sun
In conversation with Ron, his house, his history
227 Broadway often a subject over fifty two months
I found home in the hot sun and the cool shade
The saunter and the rectangle
The sound of summer in the young girls flip flops
The brief wordless conversation Flip flop, flip flop,
As we passed a little smile warmer than the sun
Flip flop, flip flop,
I found home in Norwich Today

Good morning, Peter. As I relfect on our time together in Norwich a short time ago, I feel a kinship of sorts as I read this, your latest entry. I recall walking the morning streets heading toward the coffee shop, seeing the cityscape and the never-ending construction that invades our humanity day after day. In geometry I learned that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line but have since come to the conclusion that this is not so. I think the modern quip is that the shortest distance between two points is usually under construction.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed seeing the changes to Norwich since the time I visited a couple years back. The face of the city is changing. Interestingly enough, many people try to emulate the changes of renewal in their own ways with plastic surgery, augmentations, colorful contacts, ad nauseum. Metaphors abound as I look around me in every direction.
I enjoyed sitting in the little cafeteria watching people go by, smelling the fresh coffee and pastries, enjoying good conversation, and just enjoying the “down time” with good company.
Thanks for sharing about your corner of the world, Peter. I feel like a part of me is there as well.
