TCC for 5/14/10
"New" 2007 post follows below.
The Caretaker is officially on hiatus from his blog until at least the end of this week but most likely through the end of next week. However, he will still have the e-mails from 2007 posted every night at 9 p.m. EST, they will be going out via the automated system. If the Caretaker happens to take some photos and has the time to post them he will do so. For those readers who have relied on the Caretaker's notifications of new posts via Facebook, while he is on hiatus from his blog he will not be sending out notifications via Facebook for the automated posts from 2007. If you'd like, you can sign up for e-mail notifications by entering your e-mail address at left, it is titled: "To receive E-mail notification of new posts:" It is just below the Caretaker's brief profile.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:
Island Ice Report for 3/2/07:
The storm that came in last night continued throughout most of the day today and so the Caretaker hunkered down keeping busy with indoor things. The Caretaker would have liked for the weather to be clear so he could go for another hike, but snow, hail, and rain don't make for great travel weather. He worked on a painting, practiced some new songs on his guitar, but having not played his guitar in a while he was rather out of practice and so that wasn't all that rewarding. By the end of the day, the Caretaker was actually quite down, but then at sunset things changed. The Caretaker had gone outside to refill the kerosene heater when he noticed that the moon had risen and that the sky and horizon to the East was a beautiful hue of blue, this was due to a combination of the moonlight and the setting sun filtering through the clouds. The Caretaker thought it might be a good idea to take a couple photos and so he did. He was rather please with the photos, that made him feel much better.
