We took a day trip on Saturday to visit R at New Paltz and took plenty of snapshots to document the day. The morning light looks different to me, especially when the sun's shining. It says, "Autumn is here in all its fullness and glory. Don't miss out! Look! Look at the textures of the colored leaves on the hills! Look at the way the sun shines through the leaves and makes patterns on the ground! Look at the clouds!"
R looked happy and great, and we enjoyed seeing her projects! I had fun looking at the art studios, the still lifes, the sculptural space, the random painted patterns on the floor, even the labeled pipes overhead. It's exciting to be around a place where creativity is encouraged.
We picked apples in an orchard, trees barely supporting the weight of ripened fruit. They were overly abundant. It bordered on overwhelming!
