The world as seen 336 year ago


I visted the Alexis Forel Museum 10 minutes down the road from me. It was renovated earlier this year and the entire house, built in 1670, can be visited. On a damp, getting-colder November day the deep rich colors and dark wood inside feel warm while the golden light of the courtyard and its stone walls brighten the world.

For those who had the luxury of living in homes like this November must have been a month of some appeal.

I certainly would feel privileged to live there. We're lucky enough to have many restored historical buildings with courtyards here in New England like the ones in Western Europe. That's a beautiful picture.
