    Yes, definitely weltschmerz. The black and white really adds to the feeling of sadness and melancholy. Social distance is necessary but so isolating.

    Well that is surely one way to socialize safely Khurt!

    1. It is. Temperatures have dropped below 0ºC in the last two weeks making this sort of "outdoor adventure" untenable.

    Hmm. Dreary! I didn't even notice the people at first look.

  4. camp meeting?

    1. Hi Michael. It's the lawn at the Brick Farm Tavern. Bhavna and I have outdoor dinners and drinks here weekly. It's our way of being with people without being with people. They have campfires setups around the socially distanced picnic tables. This particular afternoon it was overcast and foggy and the wood in the firepits was damp.
