Rite of Sundown on Mount Philo

We are many who find on Mount Philo those elements of nature and life that make us whole. The Mount Philo staff have found a way to celebrate what Mount Philo gives us each and every day. Each night at sunset, the staff joins all of us to stand on bedrock, watch the sun make its nightly descent in back of the Adirondack Mountains of New York on the other side of Lake Champlain, and listen and reflect as the plaintive tones of Taps are sounded by staff member Cole and his Cornet video

Things to Like in America

 First night in the Madison Neighborhood in Albany, New York. Decided to take an early evening stroll, sun setting earlier here than in Link√∂ping (Sweden). Took the quiet side of the street on the way out.
The stroll took me to the front door of Tierra Coffee Roasters-you probably have some idea of what might be inside. But what about MADISON - what's that? Maybe you have to be a bit older to know, not as old as I am, but old enough.

It is still early evening here in the US on the 22d of August but over in Sweden it is 03:23 Sunday. My biological clock is somewhere between those two times, so this is all I can manage tonight. Stay tuned; hope to tell a story or two here and at FB tomorrow.

Let your imagination loose - What's Next?
