Non-Moto: Yarnbombed Trees at the Long Island Museum

Non-Moto: Yarnbombed Trees at the Long Island Museum

In Stony Brook, New York at the Long Island Museum there are a 5 gorgeous yarnbombed trees on the grounds. The colorful swirls on the tree coats combined with the spindly tree limbs make me think of a wild undersea creature – maybe a psychedelic octopus.

Without any know-how in the crochet department, when I got up close to the work I wasn’t able to understand how these yarnbombs even work. I thought there would be some obvious “seam” or something like that. But my untrained eye didn’t pick up on anything. That only adds to my amazement. They look like they were don’t with great care. As Spongebob would say – “a sweater with love in the stitches.”

Aren’t they awesome?

Stony Brook Village: The Love Affair With Motorcycles Continues Exhibit

Stony Brook Village: The Love Affair With Motorcycles Continues Exhibit

For the second summer in a row, locally there has been a small but lovely motorcycle exhibit at the Stony Brook Village – Ward Melville Heritage Organization Educational & Cultural Center. Running from July 11 through September 7th is: The Love Affair With Motorcycles Continues.

My hope is that the show has been well attended by enthusiastic motorcyclists. It would be wonderful to continue this type of motorcycle-positive programming for our community. It does my heart good.

Stony Brook Promenade of Trees: On the Road Again

Stony Brook Promenade of Trees: On the Road Again

The Stony Brook Village Center works very hard at keeping a small town, community feel alive. During the winter season they hold an event called the Promenade of Trees where the walkway is lined with small Christmas trees that are decorated by families, scout troops and organizations. It’s fun to stroll along and admire the hard work that kids put in to coming up with a tree theme and creating the decorations for them.

This year, when my daughter and I walked along looking at each of them I was surprised to see this tree covered in motorcycle themed ornaments!

Though my daughter’s tree was my favorite, the On the Road tree with it’s curvy road sign topper was a close second. I hope someone walking by will see it and be inspired to finally take the leap and learn to ride!
