The house was stripped of its yellow paint last fall
as you can see

Here i am
at Greenwood in April
being watched over by the boy Peter and his mother
Peter, who grew up here

but who remains smitten by and committed to the spirit of this special place
and created the foundation that has become Greenwood.
