  • Living here -- in this corner of the world; world events can seem fictional.

    In the distance sirens wail and for a moment our serenity is shattered.

    Living here -- and trying not to ingest - The Daily Depressing Dose - Strife and Suffering on the stands - NOW.

    An underlying discontent has slowly creeped into my sense of being.

    Living here -- Southwest of DownEast, life seems simple but it never was.

    The mirage of isolation and exclusion has evaporated.

    Living here -- west of the cool waters off Castle Rock, one doesn't expect to encounter a shark.

    Cool & salty & slightly radioactive.

    Living here -- we prefer to remain but occasionally we venture out.

    Last night we ventured out and ended up surrounded by family and close friends.

    Living here and waking up this morning I felt restored.
