The Norwood Fair.
Always the same. Always a little bit different. Always fun. Always worth the drive. This year was no different. And the light was so beautiful that I got way too many great photos.
So rather then post a few, here’s a whole bunch to feast on during this harvest season.
This weekend brings the last two performances of New Stages‘ production of Our Town. Read more “Our Town”
Went back out to check in on the wee sheepsies.

For those of you who don’t already know, my mom, Bernice Vincent, died on Friday, March 25th.
You can read the obituary, a kind tribute by James Reaney, and an interesting article in the London Free Press. Or review her career as an artist on her web site.
Here I post this rather poor photo, taken two hours after her burial. After a weekend of mixed weather including sun, warm, cold, rain, snow, sleet, cloud and clear, the day of mom’s funeral was primarily sunny with swaths of interesting cloud.
At the cemetery someone looked up and said, “it’s a Bernice Vincent sky.” Someone else piped up, “they’re ALL Bernice Vincent skies.”
After we got back to mom’s place and were beginning to relax, the clouds, very briefly, opened up, then broke with sun in the west. For just a few minutes, hovering over the house, was this rainbow.
With unusually mild weather, a friend and I went for a walk near mom’s place. Read more “Christmas Eve Walk”
