Welcome. Edgartown News was born from the simple fact that I have ink and Dektol in my veins and I need to write and photograph more than I need air or food, and from my love for this little town where I grew up and raised my family, the town I have left a few times but can't quite shake for good. Here you will find wanderings and musings, photographs and commentary; the people, places, and happenings - past and present - of a small island town.

People and Colors, June 3

My friend Becky came over tonight and we went for a walk, with our cameras, downtown. Honestly, I'm so tired of passing person after person on the sidewalk who stares straight ahead, silently. From now on, no matter what, I'm saying hello. Come on, people - what is this, Zombie land?

"Wow, Do you always wear colors like these? What's the occasion? Are you a Buddhist?" "No, this is just what I do. I'm from Boston, here on business."

Mike is here on vacation, staying at his family's Campground cottage, and was determined to catch a scup for supper. A Church of God pastor, Mike's pastoral work involves teaching inner city teenagers to read, kids who are part of the fallout of the collapsed economy. Mike's been on sabbatical for the past four months. "I miss my kids".

  1. Just found your blog. I absolutely love the Vineyard and hope to someday have a little place for my family to visit and cherish the island as much as I do. We visit as often as possible, this year staying in an old house on Main Street in Edgartown. Your writing and photography are wonderful and I love reading what an "islander" has to say about the place. Thanks for sharing... and that Mike sounds like a pretty awesome guy.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Karen. Where on Main Street? I'm at 117, stop by and say hi. Yes, I liked Mike a lot. I hope he caught a fish.
