Faded Brilliance

At some point yesterday, I remember having a brilliant idea for a post. Ok, to be honest, it probably wasn’t that brilliant. Rarely, if ever, do I have truly brilliant ideas. I may have great inspirations, but that’s as far as it usually goes. When I finally sat down to wrote this post, I couldn’t remember what my idea had been. So, I’m just going to wrote what’s on my mind.

I did do some exploring of the area yesterday. My family will be up here Friday, so I wanted some things to do with them. I drove out to Waterbury in order to find the Ben and Jerry’s Factory, because a tour there would be really cool (no pun intended). Then I drove up to Stowe, which from what I can tell is mostly a ski town, but I may be wrong about that. I did check out the Cabot Creamery Annex Store, which had a multitude of cheese samples. In the same little complex is a Champlain Chocolate Factory Store, yummy but expensive and a Smuggler’s Notch Distillery tasting room. That is definitely a place we will go to on Saturday. I want to find a brewery or a place that makes cider for my dad. He loves beer and there seems to be plenty of places in Vermont for beer. I also drove to Williston, which is where most of the shopping is, at least the big named stores that most people would be aware of.

I will talk to the people I work with this week for some more suggestions for what they need to see. They will definitely get to see my museum on Saturday. I want to keep them busy so that they don’t drive me insane while they are here. They will be leaving on Monday, but it will be nice to have them here.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
