“I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.” ~ Hafiz

Those Shakers with their simple symmetry. In all the times I’ve been in the Trustee’s Building I had never gone to the top floor until the Rental Sister trip. This is what I found. Such simple beauty.

“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.” ~ Hans Selye


all smiles


Weeks ago at Shakertown, the rentals and I took a brief hay ride. With Kelly and Cassie engaged in conversation, Pam and I had our own talk. She and I had a few of these talks that weekend. They are treasured moments for sure.

“Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

Shakertown is fabulous all the time, but it’s especially moving at sunset/sunrise and at night. The Rental Sisters and I were out and about at sundown after a fabulous dinner when I passed the Center Family Dwelling, nearly 22,000 square feet. I look forward to doing it again. Maybe I’ll remember to take my tripod next time. Look for a ton of nighttime photos if I do.

“Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” ~ Zig Ziglar




In the first family dwelling at Shakertown, which they outgrew and it went on to be the architect’s building and something else, it’s opened today to the public with displays of various activities that took place there. The upstairs has been cordoned off, and under the stairs this moment of positivity appears.
