We’ve done a lot of listening this summer to the community concerns that have arisen after the events of early June.

I first heard Keikilani and Leokani Lindsey, father and son singer-songwriters, at Packer’s Wharf during the visit of Hokule’a.

The four of us walked from our Vineyard front door to our adjoining field. After a quarter century on this property, it was our final night.

From the September 11, 1942 edition of the Vineyard Gazette:

How to measure summer? Number of beach days. Number of fish caught. Number of stars in the sky. Number of hours worked.

How many for Labor Day? Mom would ask at supper the week before. We had to account for ourselves and guests so she could order food.
