This blog is an archive of random thoughts I’ve had, noteworthy quotes I’ve found, memorable lyrics I’ve heard, and photos and memories that I do not want to forget from over the years.

The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea.

Green stuff

Green stuff in the woods.

You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.

~Anne Lamott

Found a little snapping turtle crossing the driveway at our cabin in New York, the children named him Tom.

Humor is almost always anger with its makeup on, I think, but in little towns the makeup tends to be thin.

Stephen King – Bag of Bones

Fishing for winter flounder in Long Island Sound.

Bragging may not bring happiness, but no man having caught a large fish goes home through an alley.

Easter breakfast is simple but special.

Went on a hike in the woods on Sunday.

Grilled up some just-out-of-the-water quahogs the other night.

Went for a hike yesterday up a small but steep hill.

So go ask an old man.
See what he’s got to say.
If he falls in the gutter.
Be on your way.

Colin Hay Go Ask An Old Man

Took a picture of docked Coast Guard Barque Eagle while out for a walk with a friend.

Put a wood duck nesting box up along the river. We are ready for spring.

Sometimes I wish I was born in another time.
A long long time ago.
Things were much harder then.
But I like the clothes they wore.
And the way they did their hair.
At least they took some care.
Then they all went off to war.
You can never have it all.
