(My good friend Joyce, has been reading my blog since I began this effort in
2010. I asked her if she would write what she enjoys about my blog and to
pick a few favorite images. Below find her thoughts which I am honored to
share with you.)
"Curb Appeal in Sleepy Hollow" is a rich story of family life that I have
followed from its beginning in January of 2010. I love seeing Dorothy's fine,
professional photographs and the stories that accompany them. I am an avid
follower because I know I'll be refreshed by the sense of well-being that
accompanies each entry.
Through the seasons, comings and goings, ups and downs, and many excursions
Dorothy's internal gyroscope returns the world and her active household of 5 to
its rightful place in a few carefully crafted paragraphs.
The quality of this blog reminds me of why I read The New Yorker. It often
reveals interesting topics and is always dependably executed. Talent to
achieve these ends is a given, but being dependable through almost 350
entries is truly rare.
There are many who consider creating a record of their lives, and there
are a few who actually try. But very, very few who deliver a record as
potent as this one. Brava, Dorothy.
