It had a real nice view.
Reminded of the Bowerbirds’ tumblr - thanks to the fact that this week’s Parenthood ended with a heartwarming family pickup basketball game set to their awfully romantic song “Northern Lights” - I checked it out for the first time in months. Awesomely enough, there were pictures of them at The Lady Killigrew/Montague Book Mill, one of the most magical places in existence, when they played in Northampton in October. (A show that I had to miss - at the peak of the fall leaf season - since I was down in NYC.)
It’s hard to quantify the magic of this photo, but I’ll take a stab at it - mostly, my best friend and I would listen to the Bowerbirds’ albums (both of them, gold!) while taking in the windy, pastoral, lovely drive to The Lady Killigrew, so this photo is basically two Meaningful Things in my life meeting. I love it!
Also, I am on a mission to get everyone in the world to travel to this particular old mill-turned coffeehouse/used bookstore/purveyor of goodness, so, if you’re in Western Massachusetts, go there! It’s wonderful.
