I don’t know how many people have actually been looking at the moon this week, but it has been so beautiful. In my comfy chair, where I sit and watch TV or should I say fall asleep, my window is just a little to the left and the blinds are open enough so that I can see the moon shining through. However, this week has been the best, even on the night when it was overcast.

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week.

The first thing on my agenda right now is to correct an error from last week. I reported that Louise Duart was in the hospital, when in fact it was Louise Bernard. I am glad to say she is home now, and she is very happy to be home. I visited her the other day and her bed is set up in the sunny part of the house and her TV is right where she can watch the Red Sox and keep track of what is going on.

Former Edgartown resident and Island friend Hillary Landers needs help. Hillary raised her son, who is blind, here in Edgartown. Ten years ago, after her son left for college, Hillary had a devastating fall, and is paralyzed. Friends have begun a fundraiser to help Hillary find a permanent home with the accommodations she needs. If you are interested in supporting the cause, please visit gofundme.com/housing-for-hillary to make an online donation.

I got a call the other day from a person who had just read the column and she said she liked the horse story from my column last week and that it made her smile. Those are the words I like to hear because that means I am doing my job.

The Island Food Pantry (Old Stone Church, Vineyard Haven) wants everyone to know that they are going to remain open after the current schedule ends on Friday, April 14. They will continue to provide groceries for those in need every Wednesday from 3 to 6 p.m. until three-day service resumes in the fall.

Hope you all have a great Easter in whatever way you celebrate and hope you get some family time in.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
