They are studied by all who delight in them.
Splendid and majestic is His work,
And His righteousness endures forever.
This is the Connecticut River Valley. You can see this view from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, one of the stops Wendell and Marion took us to on our way back from the Yankee Candle Extravaganza. Wendell and Marion are teaching us that Massachusetts has much more to it – rolling fields, bird-chirping woodlands, quaint preserved towns – than Worcester’s ageing, rusted-out industrial filth. So we are gaining an appreciation of the East Coast before we leave after all.
