What is there about Martha’s Vineyard
That urged a friend of mine from Lebanon
To say, “I don’t want to die without seeing
Martha’s Vineyard.” “Seeing” it. When I asked why, her answer was simple —
“It’s the most beautiful place in the world”.

On May 6, 2021, her words are true.
Look to the ocean, the sea, the ponds,
The fields of red-tipped grass before they
Grow tall enough to blow. Roads wind to their destinations held together by a State
Road handle and a sharp whip-line to

Edgartown. It takes a Covid winter to wonder at the architecture of the towns — colonial, Georgian, traditional, contemporary. Exquisite. Museum
Made by the eyes who imagined this Island from the start, informed by fishing,

Whaling, agriculture, sheep and goat and beef farming. People who lived and live here. A land of the people, by the people and for the people. Not
just a
Small piece of America — America itself.
Something to to build on and cherish.
