Remember and honor all of our fallen Veterans.



Very early, the other day as I walked along the beach, a dear friend came to my mind, as he often does as I stroll along with my thoughts. I was loving the quiet full silence as I looked out over the water. A lobster boat was slowly moving along, hauling in trap after trap, and a few gulls dipped in and out of the smooth surfaced water diving for the remains being cast overboard. I so wanted to share that moment with you, I thought.  The calmness of the water, reflected the tranquility I was feeling–not one ounce of turbulence below, considering my crazy schedule this time of year.  This was one of those rare times when I was exactly where I wanted to be, with the perfect person in my heart, doing what I wanted to be doing. I was feeling what I loved feeling — at peace and  very safe. j.a.s.


Asparagus Season

One of my favorite parts of the month of May, harvesting the asparagus beds.


After the Rain

I took a detour today away from my usual along the dunes and beach for my walk, doing the woods trail instead.  With all this rain we’ve had, everything has just come alive. The fiddleheads have nearly passed, the marsh marigolds ablaze, a few early trillium were spotted, and one lone columbine graced the paths.



Morning Calm


Spring Green

They grow up so quickly… baby seedlings 🙂


Rivers to the Sea

When the river stops
Let it stop
When the river falls
Let go
Let it fall
When the river turns to open sea
You are free
All rivers return to the sea
It is their
