there’s something sad about a blog that has ended
There are blogs that start and two entries later they are done, they just never got their blog wings. Then there are blogs with several years worth of posts; there is often and ebb and flow, sometimes the blogger will have been very prolific followed by months of scarcely a word. Then one day it just stops.
There is nothing more to say I guess.
The writing ends and the words left behind just float in cyberspace leaving the reader to wonder happened in the blogger’s world to end his writing. Sometimes the subject matter of the blog is short lived; I’ve written blogs based on assignments I had in art school…once the class ended, the purpose of the blog ended as well. Sometimes people blog to be read by others and when they realize that no one is reading their blog, they cease to write. I write for myself. If someone reads what I write that’s nice, I’m even flattered, but at the end of the day, my words are are record of my own days.
Sometimes I feel that a blogger has given up. I’m not sure what they’ve given up though. I get invested in blogs and when they end, I’m left hanging. I want to know what became of the blogger.
I just don’t want the story end.
Tonight we headed into the Berlin to see the lighting of the boom piers on the Androscoggin as well see all the carved pumpkins on the pedestrian bridge all a part of RiverFire. We got there just as they started lighting the piers. These pictures really do no justice of the fires, but the pumpkin shots are cool. It seemed that everyone in town was out; Main St was packed and there was a long line to cross the bridge to view the pumpkins. Next year I’m going to carve one myself for the display; I was a little angry at myself for not motivating and doing it this year. Then I realized that I’ve only lived in Gorham for 3 1/2 months and in that short time, I’ve done a lot of things! I won’t be too hard on myself now.

Took a quick hike today with Luka; she’s such a sweet and good dog. I know I go on and on about her, but she really is the best and I feel lucky every day to have her. We chose to go town Pinkham B Road which is the same as Dolly Copp depending on which way you start. The leaves are at the end of the color changing and many trees are already bare, but the leaves out there today were glowing. Absolutely positively glowing.
I rush home from work each day so I might have just a bit of time to take a good forest walk with Luka, we both love it so much. The last few days have been summer like. Yesterday it was 80, today mid 70’s. Rumor has it that rain is coming tomorrow…alas.

she reminds me of rainbow sherbet, my favorite ice cream flavor as a child
