Things to Do Today

20160921_003717Today is World Gratitude Day.
September 21st.
Who knew?
I mean, it’s not a Holiday which I grew up knowing.

And so Here, Today, is a Day to Give Thanks across the World,
For All of Us to Come Together and Give Thanks!

Everyone thinks that it’s Autumn
But it’s really still Summer.

What a Great Gift these next few Days are!

My Partner saw me to the door, as I was heading off.
Our downstairs neighbor was heading slowly up the steps toward us — which was unusual all by itself — and looking somewhat eerily stunned.
“Have you guys heard the news this morning?” she asked.
We had not.
“A plane hit the World Trade Center!
They don’t know if it’s an accident or terrorism or what.
I am just heading up to the roof to have a look.”
We joined her. (more…)

I Love Provincetown.
I think it’s the Sunsets!

In this contemporary world in which year after year, we find ourselves increasingly immersed in the virtual reality of the internet,
it is so refreshing —
So Peaceful —
To return to the Elements.
