To the Editor:
I have become a major fan of Peter Simon’s weekly column, “The Vineyard Scene,” as seen in the Community section. Each week, he has a special knack of picking just the right occasion to memorialize.
I have followed Peter’s work for many years — from his hippie/counterculture days to his more pastoral Island landscapes of recent years. The current issue of The Times is a case in point. It features the Barn Builders Bash and epitomizes what makes Peter’s column (and this Island) so special.
He has a special talent to capture everyday Island folk in a cozy, favorable light, and makes us all feel so lucky to be living here while being in front of Peter’s special lens.
