I am finally taking the plunge after months of procrastination. It’s the afternoon of July 7, 2013 in Stockbridge. Anne and I were planning a relaxing few hours on the lawn at Tanglewood listening to the Boston Pops. But thundershowers forced a change in plans and instead I spent the afternoon learning a bit about managing this blog and uploading one of my favorite images (Musee d’Orsay) as the first header. At 73 I am now officially part of the blogosphere. I will need a great deal of help going forward and will look to my children and more frequently to my grandchildren for help and guidance in this endeavor.
