The window to the left looks out over a small Memorial park
and just beyond that is the Atlantic ocean and Short beach.
The window in the front of my desk looks out over
the lowlands gravel parking lot and the town ball fields.
In summer, we see families walking across the park
to and fro from short beach. We see the set up for
the Memorial day parade and we see them all marching up
the hill and into town. We see them march back and after stopping
at the cemetery at the top of the hill, we see them have another little
ceremony at Memorial park.
We can see both the men's and the woman's softball games
at night, after dinner in the park across the way.
We see folks bringing their dogs to Doggy beach,
which is just behind my desk.
We see the waves splashing against the cliffs
on this rather tiny island.
In the morning I watch the sun coming up
and in the evening I watch it going down.
I have the best seat in the house....no wonder I never get any work done.
I've been doing a lot of cooking
now that winter has settled in.
I love dancing around the kitchen
on a weekend afternoon.
