Keep on the path. Tim Johnson

The January thaw has a tradition of its own. Weeks of freezing, Christmas snow — the pattern seemed to be clear. But suddenly raindrops have been a weekly presence and the thermometer settled in the forties and headed toward fifty. Disconcerting.

Reminded of how capricious and resistant to prediction our weather can be at this time of year, the wisest among us will accept each day without complaint. On the other hand, we reserve the right not to be wise.

Tim's photos capture a timelessness that, despite the island's unfortunate growth and popularity, reminds me the real Vineyard is still there.

Count your blessings with this rise in temperature in January. Martha's Vineyard is in kind of a sweet spot where, knock on wood, no recent tornadoes or hurricanes (my 30 foot sailboat in the harbor was struck by a twister several years ago, sounded like a bomb going off and pulled the mast strait up demolishing it into splinters and tore the steel shrouds into pretzels). But this weather is a part of the global transition and we are extremely fortunate to live here.

The light you captured on the West Chop lighthouse is remarkably alluring. Thank you for sharing your ‘eyes’ thru the lens each week. I always look forward to your shots.
