Love that Sumac! ~ Winter on Cape Ann MA ~ for Orange You Glad Its Friday


Welcome to Cape Ann MA ~ the 'other' Cape. We are north of Boston and technically an island connected by two bridges. It is beautiful and the ocean is central to our lives. I was  born and reared here then moved away only to come back after twenty odd years. Had to leave to really appreciate the beauty that is right here in my 'own back yard'.  Tis true with creativity also, look within and around you ~ beauty is right there.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: 'I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.' ~ Dwight D Eisenhower
