New: “Mountain Light”

The town just west of ours is Mont Vernon (yes, there’s no “u” in Mont). While it refers to itself as a mountain, it’s really not…more of a big hill. But in Southern New Hampshire, our hills are smaller than the monsters up North in the Whites…so the standards down here are a bit more relaxed. On a drive through Mont Vernon a couple years ago–a blindingly bright sunny day in early October–I passed this place, and was caught by the blast of bright sun on the old house. The light at the top of mountains (or big hills) is pure and often uninterrupted…and just seems brighter. This piece is both about that light, and our town’s neighboring “mountain”… “Mountain Light” 24 x 24
