Read a Book or Pay My Taxes?
Reading a good book would be so much more enjoyable than paying taxes, but I have procrastinated long enough. Today is the day.
I received an email from Matt Wood, the designor/director of the Torrington Mural shown a couple of weeks ago. He tells me that it was a project for an After School Arts Program (ASAP) in Washington Depot, a small town near Torrington. All of the people portrayed in the mural were student artists participating in the project. And, the large "negative head" image is of Polly Doremus, an elderly lady who was active in the area and who co-founded a shelter for battered mothers.
It is always a pleasant surprise to hear from people who come across photos featured here. And, even more, it is always fun to learn about the positive things that people do in their communities. Not everyone is a Scrooge.
