Mystery Monday (12/19)



Welcome back to another Mystery Monday challenge! This week, we have two photographs of the same location! Since these appear to be challenging pictures, we’ll provide hints towards the end of the week if no one is having any luck finding the location.

Also, this will be the last Mystery Monday contest until January 10th. We’ll keep you updated on Facebook and Twitter for other blog posts between the holidays.

If you’ve been playing for a while, then you know how this works. If not, be sure to read the guidelines below.


Reflections from our President - 2011

Time is an ocean, but it ends at the shore

Bob Dylan, “O, Sister”

There’s an old tale about two hipsters in a small rowboat, bobbing on the ocean, dawdling away the day and absorbing the splendor of the watery world around them. One says to the other, “Man, look at all the water.” And the other says, “Yeah, man, and that’s just the top.”

I recall the tale this morning as I reflect on the year that has passed, and the year to come. It’s a truism, perhaps a cliché, to say that the units of time we impose on the flow of life as it washes over us are artificial. Of course, we need those units to organize what we do – how else might we arrange to do things together? “Meet me this afternoon at 4", or “My baby’s leaving for Tanzania at the end of the month,” or the always-curious “Daylight Savings Time begins next Sunday” are essential constructs of social organization. If you want a trippy thought-exercise, try sometime to imagine how early humans managed their affairs without any shared sense of how to measure and talk about time, and seasons, uncertain of the Sun God’s plans for the future.


Mystery Monday (12/12)


Welcome back to another MysteryMonday! This week’s photograph is most definitely a change of scenery and the exact location is unknown. We know the state and county, but its up to you to find it on Google Maps! I’ll provide a hint later in the week if no one is having any luck finding it.

As always, the more descriptions and observations you leave, the more fun Mystery Mondays are!
