Duty Calls

We’ve relocated to the narrow land of the Outer Cape for the next three weeks or so, and unfortunately we have such a full schedule that these pages may be updated only sporadically. There is simply too much else that needs doing: oysters must be gathered, beaches lazed upon, drinks prepared, friends entertained, photons absorbed, books read, ponds swum, lobsters steamed, beauty appreciated, steaks grilled, stars gazed at, grey cells rested, waves ridden, trails walked, guitars strummed, sleep caught up on, and so forth — there’s simply no end to it all. It’s a grim task, but we do think we can manage it all somehow if we apply ourselves diligently, and stay focused.

We’ll post what we can as the opportunity presents itself, but things may not be back to normal around here until sometime after Labor Day.

  5. Lazing about might interfere with those other activities, but it’s an important task, too.

    As a wise sage once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

    Glad to see you’re stopping to look around.

    Thank you all! It’s probably rather indecorous of me to have written a post like this…
