Set 3 of My Favorite Pictures Taken From Inside Our Cottage in the White Mountains
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 

The pictures were taken inside our cottage in various seasons
I'm strictly an amateur photographer
If a bright light appears in a picture it's usually the reflection of my flash on the window glass
Sometimes the lens is zoomed making objects appear closer

On May 14, 2006 I retired from Trinity University after a long and wonderful career as an accounting professor in four universities. I was generously granted "Emeritus" status by the Trustees of Trinity University. My wife and I now live in a cottage in the White Mountains of New Hampshire ---

Our address is 190 Sunset Hill Road, Sugar Hill, New Hampshire
Our cottage was known as the Brayton Cottage in the early 1900s
Sunset Hill is a ridge overlooking with New Hampshire's White Mountains to the East
and Vermont's Green Mountains to the West

Here's the view from my desk this time of year

Here's a sign in the garage given to us by daughter Lisl

After her many spine surgeries I put in an elevator for Erika

The elevator leads down to our basement and garage
This high-ceiling basement looks like Wal-Mart

Our back bedroom faces the Green Mountains of Vermont to the west

My pet woodchuck can be seen beside the trunk of the maple gree

This is an indoor shot from my studio behind our cottage
I have a second office in this studio, but now it's mostly a storage office
Erika prefers that I work closer to her in case she needs me

The studio is shown of the right hand side of the photo below

I see from my house by the side of the road
By the side of the highway of life,
The men who press with the ardor of hope,
The men who are faint with the strife,
But I turn not away from their smiles and tears,
Both parts of an infinite plan-
Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man.
Sam Walter Foss (1858-1911)

The lines of World renowned Poet and also a Nobel laureate, Rabindra Nath Tagore.
 He wrote (copied from Wikipedia English translation of original Bengali poem)

If they answer not to thy call walk alone,
If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,
O thou unlucky one,
open thy mind and speak out alone.

If they turn away, and desert you when crossing the wilderness,
O thou unlucky one,
trample the thorns under thy tread,
and along the blood-lined track travel alone.

If they do not hold up the light when the night is troubled with storm,
O thou unlucky one,
with the thunder flame of pain ignite thy own heart
and let it burn alone.
