the good

this is a plaque on a wooden bench in Marjoram park

which overlooks the Atlantic ocean 

and the Boston skyline

the random

 there are big jars of sea-glass all over my house

i like the way the sunlight splinters through them

on the windowsills

the Grand Pram was on Saturday

a race in a snub-nosed rowboat (a pram)

around a lobster boat

a Narragansett beer is tossed to you from the lobster boat

and you must catch it and return to shore with it

(Narragansett is the beer they drank in the movie Jaws)


there are races for the little kid in prams and kayaks (they don't have to catch a beer)

a race for the Nahant Sailing Program (which the event is a fundraiser for)

a stand up paddle race

and the final event (where the beer is) the Grand Pram itself!

everyone must wear a life-vest (PFD)

and the harbormaster/coast guard boat is in the water just in case



  1. there are big glass jars and enamelware dishes and old spice bottles filled with sea glass here, too. their beauty always makes me smile. these collected gems are truly my favorite 'things.'

    i resonate with you!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
