#19 Guest-Patrick

Patrick is the keeper of the Saugerties Lighthouse. (Doesn't that make you want to start singing the soundtrack from Clockwork Orange.) Patrick was kind enough to answer my 3 questions. When Jos and I lived in Peekskill, I always took it for granted that we would stay overnight in the lighthouse one day. Now that we are so far away, I wonder when that time will come. Thanks again Patrick.

1. What is your favorite color? Blue, specifically "stormy blue" as in the underside
of storm clouds as seen in the photo below. (That's the Saugerties Lighthouse BTW.)

2. Who is your favorite artist? Vincent Van Gogh.

3. If you were a painting, which one would you be? Why?

Van Gogh's "Irises" because the painting
represents to me a sturdy vibrancy and poise, not to mention the
soothing blues of the iris blossoms.
