  • September 11, 2001

    That fateful day in September, ten years past, Anne and I were on a trip up the coast. The plan was to spend two weeks at our leisure on a journey, sight seeing, exploring, thinking, writing, doing our art.

    Not much went toward our intentions. As the days unfolded, I recorded them and published some of the thoughts and observations in the Cedar Key Beacon. Much of what follows was printed there:

    A Transition From Positive Expectations

  • Cedar Key may be the “Clam Capital of the World.” However, Homer, Alaska, is the official halibut capital of the world. In fact, like Cedar Key’s clam claim, there’s a sign at the city limits that says so.

  • As a youngster growing up in Canada, Susan Coffin was well aware of the Inuit custom of carving animals. It was something she learned about at the age of nine, when she received a carved stone duck.

  • Eva Marie Everson knew she had come to the right place when she crossed the No. 4 bridge and her cell phone service promptly stopped working.

  • If you Google the history of the zentangle, you really won't find anything that specific on the subject because it is something that defies a tidy definition. When you look at an example, at first glance, it may just appear to be a bunch of doodles.

    But, it is more than that. Some practitioners believe that it serves as a form of meditation. There is some deliberate thought involved initially but they easily fall into a rhythmic, relaxed state as they draw the different designs.

  • In commemoration of the recent changes in food laws in Florida, specifically regarding “cottage” cooking laws, I thought writing about my recent venture into jam-making was in order.
