Baking Bread In An Oven Fireplace

June 12

Richard and I straightened up the castle before leaving. The castle
had aged. It was never more splendid than when we first encountered it
two days ago. Just before leaving we put the bread that we had bought
at the store into the top of the 1720 fireplace—a bread oven built
right into the fireplace. It turned out scrumptious. What a treat!

When you’re not traveling, expenses pile up. I guess that’s the price
of a good time. I had $400 when I started and now there’s only $180
in my pocket. The good news was that the rain had stopped and the
weather was clearing. I’m looking forward to a nice, long, bicycle
ride today. Maine and Nova Scotia, here we come!

Richard and I did Boston. We stumbled upon a youth center where we
both got a shower. We washed our clothes at a laundry mat and then, in
late afternoon, we left town. Thoreau’s Walden Pond was next up for
us. By the time we had reached there, the park had closed. The
entrance was in a secluded area, and since nobody was around, we
decided to go inside anyway. After some difficulty, we got our bikes
past the locked gates.

About me: Marvin Gaye’s song, "What’s Going On" was playing on the jukebox when I went up to the counter and bought another cup of coffee. When I got back, the painting on the wall next to where I was sitting jumped out at me, the same way it had done many times before. On it was written a diatribe on creativity. It was the quote at the bottom, though, that brought me back to this seat time after time. The quote had to do with infinity; it went something like this: Think of yourself as being in that place where infinity comes together in a point; where the infinite past and the infinite future meet, where you are at right now. The quote was attributed to Hermann Hesse, but I didn’t remember reading it in any of the books that I had read by him, so I went out and bought Hesse’s last novel, Magister Ludi. I haven’t found the quote yet, but I haven't tired of looking for it either.

    Now that was daring… Was it a worthwhile visit after hours? 😉
