Not Alone

We say the sun comes up because it looks that way. But, really, if we could feel it, this planet, our singular home, tilting and spinning, we might call it something else. Above the ocean, on the horizon, there is a fiery streak, a line of crimson that makes any person awake to see it come very awake. All else of the predawn sky is at its darkest. And yet the glass greenhouse on the hill is perfectly positioned to capture that sliver of red light and send it like a flame to the flat geometry of its length and ... 24 Jan 2023 by Marilee Foster

Big Words

The people in attendance in Bridgehampton were highly diverse: older and younger, African Americans and whites and Shinnecock Nation members. “It is good to be together and learn more about each other,” said Rev. Johnson. And they learned, too, more about Dr. King. Clergy who spoke also were highly diverse. The Reverend Nancy Remkus of the First Presbyterian (Old Whalers’) Church in ... 23 Jan 2023 by Karl Grossman

VIEWPOINT: A Personal Problem

By Lorna Coppola My daughter Maya and I stopped at a Family Dollar on the way home from buying seedlings for my vegetable garden. A car was parked in front of the curb cut, blocking handicap access to the store. The only access for me in my wheelchair was a good 75 feet away, which I immediately headed for. Outraged, Maya stopped me and entered the store to request that the cashier get on the loudspeaker and ask the person to move their car. The cashier replied with indifference that they had no loudspeaker. Maya discovered that the person at ... by By Lorna Coppola

Get Out of Dodge

Did you know that Mr. Hockey, the hockey pucks and I lived in London for six years? I can’t be bothered to read my back catalog, but I don’t remember mentioning it. Mr. Hockey worked for a multinational corporation, and they transferred him a couple times. Prior to London, we lived in Tokyo for six years. It sounds glamorous to say we lived overseas. It was exciting, but it was also ordinary. We were raising four school-aged pucks. They had the usual birthday parties, violin lessons and hockey practices, of course. But, overseas, these everyday activities took on the characteristics ... by Tracy Grathwohl
