If you’re young enough to know better you’ll recognize my not-so-great Photoshop transformation of the original, and highly controversial cover which asked Is God Dead? I honestly remember seeing this magazine for sale at the supermarket (when I was 10 years old) and wondering what it could mean. Still wondering. Which supermarket was it anyway?
With the decreased frequency of posts here I also have to wonder whether it might be time to conclude this effort. I’m not looking for your input or commentary here, but you should know that I really do appreciate your reading, commenting and friendship over the past 5 years or so. Sounds so conclusive doesn’t it? Well it ain’t. Just like the original Time magazine cover, the question was asked, but not really answered. So there.
With the beginning of autumn, life has promised that it will ease up some. Winter will be along shortly, even though we have not even had a frost yet. The foliage colors will be at peak in just a week or two. At work, the record number of students have tucked in to their workloads as have the staff and faculty. Things are really humming at this little college about to celebrate its 175th birthday.
The gardens are being prepped for their winter slumber too, though the pumpkin patch still has some green fruits that we’re leaving alone until there’s a freeze. Same goes for the tomato and pepper plants, all still plugging along. Don’t expect to have to cut the grass again this year.
Our granddaughter comes over at least once a week, and so the toys are left in the living room, but sort of put away in their respective containers and parking spaces. Like most toddlers, the shiny pots and pans are every bit as interesting as the colorful plastic toys. She has staked her claim on these objects by leaving her boots close by.
