Edgartown: Island Alpaca open house, “The Polar Express” showing, and Edgartown School Winter Concert

I don’t know about you, but I’m still full from Thanksgiving, and yet we are in full swing into the Christmas season now. I’m not complaining, believe me. I love this time of year,...

Edgartown: Tough week at Edgartown School, and Dickensian Christmas Village

0
Happy Thanksgiving week! I can’t believe it’s late November already. Well, the temperatures the last few days are doing their best to convince me but part of me feels like we were only relaxing...

Edgartown: Morning yoga at the library, and Lucas Ostinato Trio

0
I’m feeling so refreshed and revived tonight as I write. We got a weekend away to New Hampshire and just a couple of days away with no work, relaxing, shopping, and eating a lot...

Edgartown: Tech time, school banking, and thank a veteran

0
I’m writing tonight on the eve of Pop’s 94th birthday, my first ever without the old man around. I’m struggling with it, for sure. I plan to swim in his honor, as he used...

Edgartown: Happy November, fun at the Old Whaling Church, and drop-in knitting

0
Happy November. The flowers are still blooming. The azaleas are budded and/or blooming. People are still swimming. And the colors on the trees have suddenly changed to browns, yellows, and reds. It’s all a...

Edgartown: Self-guided kayak tours, October bash, and Pumpkin Run

0
Happy Halloween (almost). October is waning, with November right behind. I’m looking forward to seeing the ghosts and goblins next week. I hate to see summer go, but I do love fall. Colors, costumes,...

Edgartown: Ghosts and goblins, Make it Mondays, and parent-teacher conferences

0
Insomnia. I periodically have these bouts with it. I’ve always been a night owl, but I’m presently getting about 2 hours of sleep a night. Well, really, it’s in the morning. This week’s column...

Edgartown: Parent/teacher conferences, Truckin’ MV, and pop-up book sale

0
Well, 2022 continues to not live up to my hopes and dreams, that’s for sure. But if it’s true that things come in threes, I should be all done. As soon as Amelia got...

Edgartown: Haunted tour, fashion show, and ESP

0
As I (finally) sit down to write this week’s column, I’ve got butterflies in my belly! Baby girl child is sitting in an airport in New York, heading to Europe for two months. I...

Edgartown: Brunch under the Tent

0
Oops! I did it again. Fell, that is. Is this one of the realities of getting older, or am I just a klutz? Well, I’ve actually already established my klutziness over the years, but...

Edgartown: With kindness and compassion

0
I am torn tonight between writing a typical column versus an open letter to Governor DeSantis for his inhumane political stunt last week. I’ll start with the latter and if space allows, finish with...

Edgartown: Community through local food

0
I sit down to write this week’s column on Sept. 11, the 21st anniversary of the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York. I suppose this day will always be full of solemn...

Edgartown: Safety on the trails

0
Oh, how I miss the days when I was young, coordinated, and agile, with unceasing athleticism. Oh wait. I was never those things. And apparently, I’m still none of those things, although I do...

Edgartown: Back to school

0
Eek! Sitting down to type this, and had to enter the date. Sept. 1. How did that happen? I scared myself. The itty-bitty panics are starting, as we teachers face our return to school...

Edgartown: Stand-up comedy show

0
Happy last full week of August and the first week of (hopefully) seeing the Island quiet down a little bit. Last week was wild. Illumination Night was packed on Wednesday night, with a bigger...

Edgartown: Positive energy

1
Well, I don’t know where my brain was today, but it certainly wasn’t on writing my column. It’s 10 pm on Monday night, well past my deadline, as I finally sit down to write....

Edgartown: Mid-August events

0
After so many years on the Vineyard, I’ve just come to expect and accept the craziness that is summer, and particularly August, on the Island. Until last week. Amelia and I took a mini...

Edgartown: M.V. Atlas of Life

0
And just like that, it’s August, the month that has the reputation of being the harder of the two summer months here on the Island. Island folks have long held the opinion that August...

Edgartown: Have a great week

0
Another week, another column. Am I running out of clever stories and updates to write about? Yes. Am I writing anyay? Also yes. But thankfully, I’ve remembered some things for this week’s column that...

Edgartown: Endless outdoor activities

0
I guess it is officially summer for me. I have completely lost track of what day it is. And as such, I’m writing this week’s column late on Monday, well past my deadline. It...
