|"Thus feeding his mind with many sweet thoughts and “sugared suppositions,” he journeyed along the sides of a range of hills which look out upon some of the goodliest scenes of the mighty Hudson. The sun gradually wheeled his broad disk down in the west. The wide bosom of the Tappan Zee lay motionless and glassy, excepting that here and there a gentle undulation waved and prolonged the blue shadow of the distant mountain. A few amber clouds floated in the sky, without a breath of air to move them. The horizon was of a fine golden tint, changing gradually into a pure apple green, and from that into the deep blue of the mid-heaven. A slanting ray lingered on the woody crests of the precipices that overhung some parts of the river, giving greater depth to the dark gray and purple of their rocky sides. A sloop was loitering in the distance, dropping slowly down with the tide, her sail hanging uselessly against the mast; and as the reflection of the sky gleamed along the still water, it seemed as if the vessel was suspended in the air." - Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow |
Good Friday Morning,
That's quite a long quote which opens this morning's edition of News That Matters but it's sweet and so it's there. I did a film shoot at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery this past Monday of a play by Gabrielle Fox called "Graveyard Shift", which was first produced on the stage at the Cultural Center on Lake Carmel. The filming was directed by Kent resident Chris Casaburi and starred Fidel Fonteboa and Fred Rueck, with cinematographer, Alexander Porkos, of Carmel. Watch for it at the Oscars.
The National Weather Service has issued yet another Flash Flood Watch for just north of our area from noon today through this evening. The one issued yesterday failed to materialize, at least around here. Reports are still calling for lots of rain this afternoon - again - but tomorrow and Sunday look like nice summer days.
I had a lot to write about this morning but decided otherwise. I'm sitting here waiting for some sort of email that spells out the weekend's activities but, it boils down to this: private parties and fireworks. Aside from that, (and the quasi-fascist "tea parties" schedule around the region) this weekend is pretty devoid of organizational activities. So let's just say this:
Get outside. Take a hike. And if you play with fireworks (which should be legal as far as I'm concerned) take care, be safe, don't drive drunk and hug someone you love.Until Monday....
