Beacon, NY is a lot like the name suggests. A signal buoy to guide large vessels. Its also a shining community with lots of great folks and good things afoot. I've been lurking in its shadows, suckling from its bosom and eating corn without chewing. (i.e hanging out, drinking and goofing off). Its been a few days and the itch is itching. Time to get serious, tie up loose ends and hit the road.
