Tuesday 207: Keep The Channel Open

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening, that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, you will never exist through any other medium. It will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares to other expressions. It is your business to keep yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.

- Martha Graham

Tuesday 207: Waiting For The Ferry

"Are you ready?" Klaus asked finally.
"No," Sunny answered.
"Me neither," Violet said, "but if we wait until we're ready we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives. Let's go."

Tuesday 207: Pickup Line

On Monhegan, overnight visitors to the island are greeted at the dock by a lineup of trucks, tailgates open and drivers waiting. The thing is, only luggage gets a ride up the hill.
