Thoughts on Love

on
I’m sure there are plenty of clinical explanations, probably even more cynical ones. But those aren’t what I’m thinking about. The love I’m thinking about is pure and unadulterated. It would be more of a gushing love than anything else. The act of gushing with love is really love in the purest form. It gushes […] [Read More]

Hot August Nights / The Guns of August

on
It was a hot muggy August night, I was listening to an old live album from Neil Diamond, can’t remember the name, Live at the Greek or some such. The music was putting me in a sentimental mood. I was in the mood for history. I had had a history with history. I hadn’t always […] [Read More]

Weird “down there”

on
Downtown is Weird Now! Downtown Westport has finally entered its weird phase, as it progresses through cultural evolutionary change. The weird part: Nobody is there…maybe peeps will come back after August.. The Y is gone…everything that made downtown great is gone. So what is there?

The beach has been packed with visitors. Sure, Westport is a township on the water, but if it could be a shining city on a hill […] [Read More]

Cultural Extinction

on
With the Red Barn closing its doors I am reminded about how Westport has evolved over the years, since I moved here in the late sixties when I was one. There have been so many changes to the cultural fabric of the town — that I have learned, as a coping mechanism, to turn off […] [Read More]

Red Barn to Y 5mil rumor

on
The Red Barn has been sold to the YMCA for 5 million dollars, according to unconfirmed secret sources. No word yet on exactly what the YMCA will do with the property, or what planning and zoning will let be done there. I for one am sorry to see the institution(Red Barn) go. All sides of […] [Read More]

Body of Water

on
It was wonderful to be out on the sound yesterday. I saw many thousands of fish percolating to the surface with shining flashes of silver. The sky was dark and brooding with streaks of sunlight breaking through. The blueish colored tones were constantly changing. White puffs could be seen way off on the horizon — to […] [Read More]
