 Weather: 50’s today, windy, grey clouds, turbulent sky. 30s-40s tonight. Frost predicted in isolated hollows.

 Dearest Readers,
Autumn in Vermont is in the wind, and I am getting ready to return to Decatur, GA this Saturday the 15th. I miss you Southern friends, my kids and grand kids. 
Cecelia, Michael and Susan at SculptFest opening party inside
 The opening reception of The Well, my marble lined hole and ladder in SculptFest 2012 was a great party inside, but a complete washout outside. The same squall that spawned a tornado Saturday in Brooklyn, NY dumped sheets of driving rain on the installations Saturday evening. We had a great party in spite of the mess. The Well filled partly with water, but drained nicely, and survived in perfect shape, all white and washed clean. I took this picture Sunday afternoon around 3pm in a bright blue autumn-ish light.
Hole survives the deluge in perfect, spanking clean whiteness
When the show ends in late October, the hole will remain a permanent piece on the grounds of the Carving Studio. The director plans on sending me regular photos, as nature inevitably will alter The Well’s appearance. (Cool!)
I’ll close with pictures in Rutland that mean fall in Vermont is on the way.
