three benches
 Sherwood Island (Connecticut)'s Living Memorial 
 who lost their lives
September 11th

I took this
 a few winters ago 
visiting my friends Lauren and Annie
 it was 
winter day
 cold wind
 coming off Long Island Sound 
you can see the water through those trees

so how's your week going?

been busy
I managed to read
 Stephen King's 11/22/63
 great read
 hard to put down

 The Stand
 is one of
 all time favorite books
 might be 
 close second

 have you read 11/22/63?

 what did you think?  


  1. I do NOT read Stephen King! ;-) Just never could get into that genre, at all. My Amazon order came today: The Betrayal of the American Dream (saw the authors on CSpan's Afterwords last week) and City of Women. Hopefully, I'll actually read now. I have so many wonderful books stacked on the shelves.

  2. Such grace in granite...Have not read Mr. King's latest (not his biggest fan, but I did enjoy his last collection of short stories); waiting for the CS to weigh in with her verdict.

  3. Great pic,

    I loved 11/22/63 and I also loved The Stand. Hard to pick between them.

  4. I am a bit too much of wimp to read King, but I'm really curious about 11/22/63. I may have to give it a try.

    Love the feeling of peace and quiet I get from looking at your photo.

  5. I remember how blustery and down-right cold the wind was that day!

  6. This is such a peaceful photograph.
    I've not read 11/22/63, but I do love Stephen King.
    Busy week here too. Exam week means lots of grading (and sometimes lots of complaining!)

  7. Didn't read that one of Stephen King. Some of his writing I like, others not.

    Hey--Chateaubriant Daily Photo published this bench today.

  8. I will have to check it out. I read The Stand years ago and the other night I watched The Green Mile. Love them both.

  9. I want to read it
    The Stand is ove of my most fave also

    those benches say solid and grounded and I always find them comforting to look at

  10. Oh you and Aimee would get along famously Daryl, she is a huge Stephen King fan, she has every one of his books, I must admit I'm not that keen, but I have watched a couple of the movies.. I think IT was a huge contributing factor in her fear of clowns! Love the benches, although they seem a little sad and desolate oui!

  11. I need a cushion.
    I read the Stand.
    It was good.

  12. I haven't read that one yet, but King's "IT" is on my short list of all-time favorites.

    (The movie was a pale and lifeless thing compared to the book, IMHO.)

  13. The photograph genie must be with you. For where do you find these wonders? Nope haven't read 11.22.63. Cheers!!

  14. Daryl, I like these three! I would sit there!
    Yes, I read 11/22/63. I really enjoyed it too!

  15. The Stand is one of my favorites, too, although On Writing is my top favorite of his. I haven't even heard of this new one! Thanks for clueing me in!

  16. You know, you can see the new tower from there now....xoxo

  17. You've photographed a contemporary Stonehenge of sadness. Well done.

  18. Meaningful photo...excellent! Have not read any S.King stuff but I just finished War & Peace. Previously read Anna Karenina and became a Tolstoy fan. Now I'm waiting for the movie remake. As far as the week goes or has gone...I would not want to restart it for fear it would turn out the same. Actually it's been a lot like the last chapter of War & Peace...painful. Bring on the weekend! I hope yours is absolutely wonderful!

  19. Glad you are having a good week. I could feel the winter chill and warm sun in your photo.
