The sun beginning to set beneath the Chesapeake Bay. The first of a series of images from a whirlwind trip of five-days and four-nights with stops in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and New York.

It’s actually the redesign of an “old” scarf based on a photograph of the chancel wall at Trinity Church Boston. This scarf is brighter with crisper detail where as the earlier version had more of a soft rosy hue due to light falling from an adjacent stained glass window.

If you’ve not seen it first hand, Trinity’s chancel is hand stenciled with beautiful floral and spiritual details. Its design and decoration is not original to the 140-year old building designed by H. H. Richardson. The original apse in 1877 was much more simple. It was redesigned in the 1930s by Maginnis and Walsh.

This silk scarf featuring the chancel decoration is available exclusively in the Trinity Church gift shop. You can learn more about the chancel on the Art and Architecture page of the Trinity Church website and of course on a tour.

I found myself by the Mystic yesterday. I went without expectation, mostly feeling a need to stretch my legs. I gave myself one hour thinking that would be enough time to do one of my standard circuitous routes but for most of the hour I found myself in one spot. It was early morning, not too hot, the sun shining bright. A good wind but not too strong. I was able to plant my feet and practice patience as the butterflies settled around me.

I’m pleased to share that two new cuff bracelets are available in the gift shop at Trinity Church in Copley Square. The designs are derived from the decorative and architectural features of that beautiful building, in this case the hand stenciled golden walls of the chancel and the stained glass window, The New Jerusalem, by John La Farge. Speaking of which … returning soon will be the silk scarf also featuring that bright blue design.

A young wood thrush perhaps? Its orange chest was speckled black. I startled it a bit as I walked by on the sidewalk. No flapping of wings. It just walked deeper into the brush along the Mystic.
