Refusing To Migrate

Eastman Lake in Durand Eastman Park, late Fall 2008

We walked through the woods and along the eastern shore of Eastman Lake this morning. Up near Lake Ontario we crossed over to Durand Lake and took the path along its western shore to the woods that lead back to our house. I didn’t see a soul the whole time except for my wife. Winter is coming on and the remaining leaves have lost most of their color other than this rich brown.

Winters in Rochester are tough and they toughen us. I’m looking forward to this one. I like the solitude, the warmth of the fireplace, the lighter social calender and the additional time to paint.

  2. Try some winters out here in Minnesota if you want to toughen up!
    We got a gig in a shanty on a frozen lake!

    Agreed on the extra time for projects, it’s my favorite thing about
    winter. We don’t have a fireplace but our gas heater is gigantic &
    very old & hot & loud. Sometimes the height of its flames scares me.

    Please say hi to Martin for me, I’ve been thinking of him lately after
    hearing about his dad.
