I always look forward to Mollie Doyle’s Gazette series, A Day in the Life. The pieces are invariably well written and interesting, but this week’s report on our Island saint, Bridget Tobin, actually made me weepy. What a lovely, deeply touching portrait of this remarkable woman who keeps us all coming . . . and going . . . no matter what. Ms. Doyle captures her essence, her pace, her humanity and her infinite charm in this wonderful essay I could not put down.

Thank you both for adding so much to my life, on-Island and off.
