Have You Seen Blue Porch Lights in the Berkshires? Why Blue?
As I mentioned in the past, nostalgia is really kicking in for me. I'll spend time when I'm rocking my daughter to sleep at night thinking about the places I have lived throughout Berkshire County whether it be Pittsfield, Lee, North Adams, or Cheshire, I have fond memories of those various locations in the Berkshires and it takes me back to some fun memories especially those of my childhood days.
When I get the chance I like to visit places where I grew up, especially in the northern Berkshires, and take a trip down memory lane. Some things have changed but yet much of what I knew growing up is still very familiar. Recently, I was visiting my mother in the northern Berkshires and as I left her house to go home, I noticed that one of her neighbors had their porch light on. What was unique about this porch light is that it was blue. A while back I posted an article about what a green porch light means. If you missed it, you can check it out by going here.
