Valley Scenes

Pics and Things

In Amherst yesterday people protest the Obama war machine.

A short ways away the Gypsy Dog Gallery suggests an alternative.

Sugarloaf Snaps

Local political operative Jason Burkins was recently atop Mount Sugarloaf in South Deerfield. He took some pics, such as this one of the mighty Connecticut, the river whose relentless flowing over eons of time created our beautiful Valley.

The bridge to Sunderland. Note how muddy the water is from all the rain recently.

A view of Turner's Falls, a town where Michael Rapunzel was headquartered in the late 70's.

A Little Birdie

It was pouring like a monsoon out when I ditched into Sam's in downtown Northampton yesterday afternoon.

It was raining so hard that a baby sparrow came flying inside, probably to save itself from being pelted to the ground by the torrential rain.

The tiny thing was not the least afraid to be among humans.

As we waited for the violent cloudburst to pass, a pretty girl at the piano played melancholy tunes to a raindrop accompainment.

When the rain let up, the little bird hopped towards the entrance.

And flew away.

Thailand knows how to get down, but needs better lyric translators.
