.This post is dedicated to a very special woman in my life. As a young child, she was my role model at St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church. I always looked forward to seeing her. She taught me the sacraments and how to be an altar girl. I couldn’t wait to be old enough to be in her Sunday school class. She was my girls nursery school and YMCA daycare teacher. They grew up loving her and calling her Mimi. She was everyone’s Mimi.

She is a legacy.

She had a laugh that was so joyful you knew it was for real. I don’t think I ever saw a day she didn’t smile. She prayed for me and encouraged me. She never judge me and always made me feel like part of her family. Even our phone numbers were one digit off.”….

rolling fields fields surround
eagles, osprey, hawks
plein aire painters delight
basking in the glow

The owner of the barn and land
graciously let the Vagabonds,
Plein Air Painters paint the barn
and spend the day enjoying the
atmosphere a few years ago…
On the Historic Register.

The Tide Marks Time

.
The ebb and flow of the tide
marks the time of the people on the coast of Maine.
We track our lives by it.
Go to work by it
or plan our activities by it.
High tide, low tide
affects the activities
of young and old.
.
High tide,
not good for swimming for the very young,
looking for shells,
or clammin’…
High tide, in a storm
can flood a road or causeway, remove docks,
and bridges, stop traffic in it’s tracks.
Also at high tide,
the big ships come in,
and go out,
the scenery changes right up to the shore.
.
Low tide,
the best for little kids at the beach,
looking for shells, rocks
and sea creatures left behind.
One might even find a shiny bit of
sea glass smoothed by the ocean
and traveled from a far.
The clammers and worm diggers
are out workin’ hard.
Seaweed is gathered for food,
the garden and other uses
off the rocky coast of Maine.
Time is money
and time is ruled by the tide.
So is life at home
ruled by the tide…
dad’s at work
by the ebb and flow of the tide.

Egg fried on sidewalk

.

THAT’s hot.

And hot it is.

Ground is dry.

Cattle look for food and water.

Little kids look for swimming holes.

Hurricane Don,

a disappointment,

was thought of as a welcome sight.

City dwellers bake

as asphalt absorbs the heat,

Air conditioners a premium

…it’s lets go for a walk at the mall,

the parks too hot !

Dog days yet to come.

Dad said:

“We have to have weather

weather we want it or not.”

I think of Dad when

the weather’s rainy

icy cold, or

hot enough to fry an

egg on the side walk.

summer time
sea creatures lure
tourists play
lobsters scatter ~ others pose
fishy questions galore
.
The Penobscot East Resource Center
in Stonington, Maine, has a wonderful
interactive room including a touch tank
filled with sea creatures including a
rare albino (actually sort of light blue)
lobster. Catching a white lobster
is a rare occurrence – only 1 in 100,000,000 !!
I did get “selfie” of the lobster in my hand
to mark the day.
