How I Spent My Summer Vacation in the Berkshires in 2011

Memories of last summer & preview to this summer

No, this is not the same article that I wrote last year or the 16 years before that. And, yes, the places that I visit remain essentially the same. The reason? Why mess with perfection?

Summer months in the Berkshires are synonymous with the best in performing and visual arts in New England – perhaps in the United States. We are extremely fortunate to live close by. In my case, I live REALLY close by, spending two weeks in Stockbridge. It's a place of beauty, culture, variety, and tourists (like me).
