Milanville Bridge, December 2016

Daniel Skinner, in 1763, steered a raft of white pine logs through this river channel to Philadelphia ship yards - creating a Milanville timber industry that lasted until WWI.

Late in the 19th century, great grandson Milton won legal and political skirmishes to charter the Milanville Bridge Company -  which hired contractors who opened our bridge in 1901. 

Ice jam at Calkins Creek

 

January 30, 2018. Following an inch of rain at historic Calkins Creek, near Milanville, ice was gouged and spun away last week - and stacked into “jams,” as in my 1/27 photograph.
Sealed into each icy block are “timeless” raindrops – which carved the original Upper Delaware Valley, and created glaciers when mammoths roamed its parts.

A Christmas Prayer

A Christmas prayer for peace

 

Creative spirit, friends, loved ones, hear our Christmas prayer.

 

Let there be peace in our hearts and in the hearts of others.  In the heart of the world.

 

May there be a peace that transcends personal and national boundaries and a peace that embraces all of creation.

 

Out and About

The rhythm of my life as publisher is emerging. Maybe.

All I know is that I’m loving being out and about -- taking pictures, talking to people.

My weekend started with a visit to the Barryville Farmers Market.  I hadn’t had the opportunity to go there – and was thankful to talk to farmers and food providers as they were packing up for the season.

Serving community through business

"I like what I do and I don't need to make a killing with my pricing," said Andrew Ford, from Key Light Media Productions.  

"I have a passion for people," Z. Ivet Bandirma, MA said, as she introduced Blue Sky Business Consulting.

The sentiment speaks to passion around vocation.  And passion around vocation was on display at the Wayne Library Alliance's (WLA) Small Business Showcase held at the Park Avenue Complex on Saturday, October 21.

Small business people are like that.  They like what they do and they find ways to follow that passion.
