‘Thanks-taking’

A thunderstorm at dawn begins the week. Rain comes lashing against the house, and the rumbles can be felt through the floor. It is close. Out over the ocean, the sky flashes purple, the foreground in black light. I know what comes next: a thunderclap that makes the cozy safeness of indoors feel less so. The glass in the doors and windows vibrate in as the walls concuss. This time, the floor seems to lift as the whole house shudders in echo. During the regular growing season, I cannot enjoy thunder and lightning storms, because they can be destructive to ... by Marilee Foster

The Wind Farm’s Case

It would be the biggest offshore wind farm in New York State — more than 100 wind turbines starting 30 miles east of Montauk Point. It’s being called Sunrise Wind. A “cable bundle” containing two electric cables would be buried under the seabed and extended west from the turbines for 100 miles, making landfall in the parking lot at Smith Point County Park in Shirley, and buried underground there. The cabling would then run for 17 miles, all underground, along William Floyd Parkway and, remaining underground, along other roads, and then the Long Island Expressway, reaching the Long Island Power ... 21 Nov 2020 by Karl Grossman

My Little Book Of #Gratitude

Last week, I was at my friend Marie’s house (I changed her name, so I don’t fully embarrass her), and on her shelf was a mason jar with a handwritten label: “Gratitude Jar.” Marie told me that during the last covidian peak, one of her pod people had asked everyone to write what they were thankful for on small pieces of paper and put them in the jar. Their plan was, when this is all over, they would read the notes and relive their #gratefulness. Marie’s pod (like all of us) thought “this” would all be “over” in a matter ... by Tracy Grathwohl

Chasing Geese

All the geese seem to be in the field behind my house. Here, they have the buffet that ranges from rye cover crop to corn stubble to the rows of rotten tomatoes I didn’t have time to incorporate. One flock lands, and that attracts another; within an hour, there are hundreds. I tolerate them for a little while: I like their sound, I like to see them set their wings and come gliding in. But, ultimately, they will eat everything out here — they’ll nibble the cover crop to nothing and seal the dirt with their flat, wide feet. Rarely ... by Marilee Foster

VIEWPOINT: A Very Full Day Working The Polls

By Ellen Meyers Buoyed by the four-hour training that was extremely well-delivered and armed with a comprehensive handout that I probably should have spent a moment reviewing, I was fairly confident that poll working would go smoothly. I was impressed that democracy in action at this level appeared well-polished. So my biggest concern was facing a 16½-hour day that had the potential to be stultifying. I packed a book. After a restless sleep made worse by the very recent clock change, I got out of bed way too early. I arrived at the church, Water Mill’s polling site, at 4:53 ... by Ellen Meyers
