November's Peace Starts at Sugar Loaf !

I am back from my trip to Sugar Loaf, and yet not done with my works. My three-day trip was a joy from the beginning to the end. My first day in Sugar Loaf was the most exciting one when I discovered some paintings under the Attic of Seligmann’s house. Under the attic they kept some of his works that the Orange County Citizen Foundation considered of no value. Perhaps critics had not praised these works and that’s why they ended up under the attic. I photographed them and studied them during the next day. Before I headed back to Princeton I went around the village or more accurately the Hamlet (a small village of less than 100 residents) of Sugar Loaf. There, I discovered a tiny little Candle Shop, which was founded before 1900. They had only one kind of scented candles with Frangipani, which they liked to call: The Sugar Loaf scent.

Everyone was helpful and nice to me. Thus I started November in peacefulness of Sugar Loaf! No wonder Seligmann decided to live there.

Sugar Loaf Mountain*

A Private Cemetery in Seligmann’s House**

*It is actually a hill not a mountain. It gave the name of Sugar Loaf to the Hamlet beneath it !
**It is where Seligmann is buried along with the pervious owners of the house.
