According to a study published this week in the journal Geology, the upwelling of molten rock under parts of Vermont, New Hamshire and Massachusetts does not indicate a major eruption is coming anytime soon, but the findings are compelling in other ways.

“It will likely take millions of years for the upwelling to get where it’s going”

New England is soft rolling rock gifted by intense sky, clouds, land, lakes and ocean sensuous with beautiful views for dreamers. Four seasons, less distinct than long ago, the greening begins in May and becomes gold in October the bookends being rain and snow. I call her home and will keep my senses and eyes open for the rising, which no doubt is near to me.

I attended a boarding school for 2 1/2 years on the Massachusetts side of where Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts meet. A beautiful place but very cold in the winter. I'm grateful for the time I spent there.
