Autumn Cascade ...



"The music of the far-away summer
flutters around the autumn 
seeking its former nest."
                       ~ Rabindranath Tagore
                                ~ 1861-1941

Autumn cascades like a capricious
melody over a small waterfall on the Pequest River on a picturesque Indian Summer day in 
Belvidere, New Jersey.

The Pequest - Native American for "open land," -
tumbles down to Belvidere in a series of falls,
where it meets the mighty Delaware River,
of which it is a tributary.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming Victorian town on the banks
of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

A River Runs Through It ...



"But memory is an autumn leaf that
murmurs a while in the wind
and then is heard no more."
                   ~ Khalil Gibran
                                 ~ 1883-1931

Leaves frame the autumn colors cascading across the Pequest River as it flows through the middle of town in Belvidere, New Jersey on a perfect Indian Summer day in November.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming, Victorian town located on the
banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.
