Is this darned leak sealed?
Today I isolated the source of Monday nights leak, sealed it, and tested the seal. Maybe, finally, this ordeal is behind me. Read about it at A Tale of Two Leaks.
On my property off Less Traveled Road - The Home Place, Red Rock, East Chatham NY
- I used to camp in a few locations on what little I had left of the family farm
- In the driveway by the house
- Across the road where the barn once stood
- On the 20 acre piece off Less Traveled Road
- Now, with the kind support of the friends who now own the place, I camp across the road where the barn once stood.

The labor camp in Erfurt and, after the war, the refugee camp in Mainz were all I knew when I came here [from Germany] in 1947 at the age of seven. Like many camp survivors, it was not the experience itself that dogged me as much as the why of it. The why seems clearer every day: those who see themselves as victims, nations included, have license to commit these things. Others choose the path of healing.
