Of Guests And Ghosts

The summer here is a favorite ask. Why not? The romantic notion of being a welcome houseguest, an ocean breeze and the trappings of wealth, with none of the worries, is well formed. Most homes, you hear, have eight bedrooms; you could easily fit in a closet or a kitchen drawer. Your dining habits — though they are extreme and you’ll spend the majority of your time fulfilling them — pose a problem for no one. You won’t ask your host’s private chef to help. You are the master co-habitator, and you’ve managed to arrive even when your reverse invitation ... 11 May 2021 by Marilee Foster

An Early Challenger

By launching a campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives this month, Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming is moving early and strongly to get the Democratic nomination to run next year. In recent years, Democratic primary battles have diverted Democratic fundraising and complicated the party’s runs in the 1st Congressional District. Ms. Fleming is clearly likely to get the Democratic Party’s designation.

VIEWPOINT: Dip In Your Toe

By Shari Adler Each year in late spring, from the absolute first moment our naked feet rest upon the cool sand, we experience a rebirth that awakens the most primal of senses. The soft seabed sifts through our toes, the saltwater scent of the cerulean sea permeates the air we breathe, the sparkling reflections of the water and sky illuminate our vision, and the squealing of the seagulls envelops our ears. This is the moment to rejuvenate all basic senses that were reduced to lethargy during our most dire of winters, this one exacerbated by an exhaustive pandemic. Our personal ... by By Shari Adler

Burying Your Money

If April is the cruelest month, then what of May? With her migratory birds and dotted landscape, she’ll start the day with a harsh wind and finish it with just a trace of a summer breeze. She promises you. May would not be the kindest month, as she lays waste to the daffodil and tulip. Goodbye, pansy, unless you’ve found the shade. Alas, magnolia, hate to let you go, but here come the leaves. May, the month, like the word, is full of potential — the month of lengthening days and the lively desire to be out in it.
