“…a late night comic?”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:09 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, warm, muggy, magnificent island of Nantucket! Good to be with you on a sleepy, overcast morning, “broadcasting” LIVE from ‘down on the docks’ of Historic Hyannis Harbor, The Thirty-First Day of August, 2016.  A Wednesday according to Reuters, but to those who are big fans of the late night comic–Irishman Liam Neeson (also a part time actor in the shell/sewer/cesspool/predictive programming of what Hollywood has become)–we all know that his words in all of those ‘box office hit films,’ “…there’s no time”, ring true. For it is only in the present moment that we are actually alive and fully conscious.

Just how “Conscious” the American people really are is a topic for a debate at a Harvard philosophy conference.  Although, in this upcoming election, one did not need to attend that prestigious university to real eyes that most are asleep at the wheel, going through the motions on a treadmill that–like our friend Sarah Palin once said of a bridge in Alaska–

is going nowhere,


“…are you sure you want to be a late night comic?”

From the special waters of this little sand bar to Watertown, Connecticut…

to the waters of the world;

Have a great day y’all!

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun laden, bright, brilliant sapphire blue skied, bold, bountiful island of Nantucket! Good to be with you on yet another breathtakingly beautiful, blazing day on this wonderful sand bar that ‘time’ forgot… A Tuesday, The Thirtieth Day of August, 2016.  The reporter offering up a tribute and goodbye, for now, to one of this World’s greatest souls, Mr. Gene Wilder, who passed away at the age of 83 yesterday, taking with him the powerful LIGHT he gave to an otherwise dark and stormy third dimensional plane….

His insight and grace, humor and humility gave him what many would call the title of genius in the world of comedy in motion picture, the way they once were created…, which he gave away so freely on stage, on the silver screen as well as to his all of this many, many, many friends, family and many, many fans all over the that great big world of OURS.  So, without further adieu, here are just a few memories from three of this most popular films, with eternal words that speak for themselves.  Prophetic and wise, satirical, sassy and subtle, not to mention hilarious, something so sorely missing in this ‘modern day civilization’ we all “agree?” on at this present moment.

Have a nice Tuesday folks!

“Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (c.1971)

Mr. Turkentine:

“I’ve decided to switch our Friday schedule to Monday, which means that the test we take each Friday on what we learned during the week will now take place on Monday before we learn it.  But since today is Tuesday, it doesn’t matter.”

Willy Wonka:  “There’s no way of knowing, which direction we are going.  There’s no way of knowing where one’s rowing, or which way the river’s flowing.  Is it raining?  Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a blowing?  So the danger must be growing.  Are the fires of hell a-glowing?  Is the grisly reaper a mowing?  Yes, the danger must be growing, ’cause the rowers keep rowing, and they’re not showing any signs of slowing.”

“The suspense is terrible, I hope it lasts!”

(Willy Wonka to Charlie)

“…and don’t forget about the man who suddenly got everything he’d ever wished for.”

‘what happened?’

“He lived happily forever!’

“Young Frankenstein” (c. 1974)

“…From the very first day when filthy bits of slime crawled out of the sea and called to the stars, “I am man”, our greatest dread has always been the knowledge of our mortality.  But tonight, we hurl the gauntlet of science into the frightful face of death itself. (C.E.R.N.? Tonight, we shall ascend into the Heavens!  We shall mock the earthquake!  WE shall command the thunders and penetrate the very womb of impervious Mother Nature herself! (H.A.A.R.P.?)

Dr. Frankenstein:  “Whose brain did you put him in?”

Igor:  “Err….Abby something.”

Dr. Frankenstein:  “Abby who?”

Igor: “Abby…Normal, yes, that’s it!  Abby Normal!”

Dr. Frankenstein: “Are you saying that you put an abnormal brain in a 7 foot tall, 54 inch wide GORILLA!” (choking the humpbacked assistant as he screams at his folly)

“Blazing Saddles” (c.1974)

“Jim”, a.k.a. ‘the Waco Kid’

…well, it got so that every piss-ant prairie punk who thought he could shoot a gun would ride into town to try out the Waco Kid.  I must have killed more men than Cecil B. DeMille.  I got pretty gritty.  I started to hear the word ‘draw’ in my sleep.  Then one day, I was just walking down the street when I heard a voice behind me say, “…reach for it Mister!”  I spun around…and there I was, face-to-face with a six year old kid.  Well, I just threw my gun down and walked away.  Little bastard shot me in the ass.  So I limped to the nearest saloon, crawled inside a whiskey bottle…and I’ve been here ever since.

(Jim speaking with the new black sheriff ‘Bart” played by the great Cleavon Little)

Jim:  “What did you expect, ‘welcome sonny?, make yourself at home?, marry my daughter?  You have to remember, these are simple farmers, these are people of the land, the common clay of the new West.  You know, morons.”

and finally, at the end of that fantastic film, “Jim” asks a simple question to his new found friend, Sheriff Bart as they killed the bad guy, and saved the town from his vulture like attitude to ‘it’…,


“…where are ya headed cowboy?”

Bart replying:  “No where special.”

Gene Wilder, a.k.a. “Jim”:

“…no where special, always wanted to go there.”

(”Jim” and “Bart” then jump on their horses and ride off into the sunset, only to stop, dismount and jump into a limo, heading back off into that sacred sunset forever…)

God’s speed Gene Wilder! God’s speed!

“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:45 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the partly cloudy, breezy, bountiful, beautiful island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on another Monday morning, The Twenty-Ninth Day of August, 2016, shaping up to be yet another awesome beach day for those fortunate enough to still be on these magical shores. People from all over the world, France, Spain, China, you name it…, some visiting, vacationing, or simply living. For just because the summer may be winding down for this season, please keep in mind that every season is special in a land created by nature’s power 11,500 years ago; the great sheets of ice that once covered much of North America retreated forever, leaving this enchanted “property” behind.  Mother Gaia at her best indeed.  So plan your Christmas Stroll on that fabled isle of Nantucket; a ‘far away island’ the Wampanoag coined so many moons ago…

You won’t regret it!

In the immortal words of Mathew Broderick, starring the aforementioned film captioned in the title above, circa 1986,

“Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Have a great week ahead ALL!

‘no one’

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:57 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun dripped, blue skied, freshly breeze led, cool, calm, collected island of Nantucket! Good to be with you on a sleepy Sunday morning, broadcasting LIVE from this beautiful sand bar that “time” has let be, a feeling that is shared by all who visit.  And those who live, laugh and love in and around these blessed waters.  On this Twenty-Eighth Day of August, 2016, this humble reporter would simply remind those who have left their Heart in Hyannis–back to ‘the grind’ of this fabulous modern life we put up with currently, most likely in a cold, calculated, callous, cunning, cut throat city–you are not alone.

The late, great John Denver (composer, musician, father, son, brother, friend; December 31, 1943-October 12, 1997), towards the end of his celebrated life, wrote a song that perhaps many have not heard.  The work speaks to those who have experienced the isolation of being thrown into the mix of this fast paced, inhuman, molded matrix, the high risen coldness of secret cement, devoid of the human heart, touch and soul.  Just keep in mind that this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by ‘The Last Great Ice Age’, will always be here.  A promise of peace in a mad world we are ALL inimitably wrapped up in?

“You be the judge Greg!”

(credit:  the classic 1978 film “Animal House”, written by the late, great Harold Ramis, starring the late, great John Belushi)

“No One”

‘I came into this lovely city, about three weeks ago today.  And I’m trying to find someone I can talk to…, a friendly face to turn my way…

I walk the streets in silent sorrow.  I walk my feet into the ground.  And all I see are cloudy, cold suspicious faces, swear to God it brings me down.

Is there no one with a smile for me?  No one with a hello, in their eyes?

Is there no one who will hug me?  And hold me in the dark and lonely night?

The parks are green, and full of flowers…  And lovers lying on the lawn.

I wish I had a lady here I could laugh with, Jesus Christ it hurts me to be alone.

Is there no one with a smile for me, no one with a hello in their eyes?

Is there no one who will love me?  And help me through the cold and lonely night?

(singin’ la, la, la, la, la, la, la….)

This life is hard and full of trouble.  It’s painful just to live from day to day…  But if you’re weary and afraid, don’t turn away now, there’s no reason we have to feel this way.

Is there no one who will smile for me?  No one with a hello in their eyes?  Is there no one who will love me, and help me through the cold and lonely night?

(singin’ la, la, la, la, la, la, la…)

I just need someone to talk to, it hurts me to be alone.  I just need someone to laugh with, it hurts to be alone…

I just want someone to love me, I need someone to talk to,

and it hurts to be


singing la, la, la, la, la,


…we’ll leave the LIGHT on for ya!

Doctrine of Truth

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:27 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the happy, sunny, well-to-do, wishing well island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Saturday morning ‘down on the docks’ of historic Hyannis Harbor, a beautiful day on tap, this 27th day of August, 2016, sporting those pure blue skies above, seasonal temperatures, light south/southeastern breeze and an faint echo from the deep, deep blue Atlantic, beckoning one back to the place from where we all came…

The following is an excerpt from an ancient book written in Latin way, way back in the year of 1429 A.D., “The Imitation of Christ”, by Thomas A Kempis, offering up some wisdom that is sorely missing from our collective experience on this little ‘blue spinning ball’ in an ‘infinite and expanding universe?’…

“Hello!  McFly!  Is this thing on?  Think, McFly, Think…”

(credit the classic 1985 film “Back to the Future”, starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover and the voice of that famous quote, Thomas F. Wilson)

Beware of the great deception, an upside down/backwards approaching storm; a comical, grandiose world wide webbed attraction, coming to a theater near you soon!

Have a great Saturday!

“Happy is he whom Truth teacheth by itself, not by figures and words that pass, but as it is in itself. (Ps. 17:36; Ps. 28:26).  Our opinion and our sense often deceive us, and discover but little.

What availeth a great dispute about abstruse and obscure matters, for not knowing which we shall not be questioned at the Day of Judgement?

It is a great folly for us to neglect things profitable and necessary, and willingly to busy ourselves about those which are curious and hurtful.  We have eyes and see not. (Ps. 115:5).

And what need we concern ourselves about terms of philosophy?

He to whom the eternal Word speaketh, is set at liberty from a multitude of opinions.

From one word are all things, and this one all things speak; and this is the beginning which also speaketh to us.

Without this word, no one understands or judges rightly.

He to whom all things are one, and who draws all things to one, and who sees all things in one, may be steady in heart, and peaceably repose in God.  (1 Cor. 2:2).

Oh Truth!  my God, make me one with Thee in eternal love.”

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, humid, haunting island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Friday morning, The Twenty-Sixth Day of August, 2016, ‘down on the docks’ as it is, broadcasting LIVE from Historic Hyannis Harbor where the sun and those clouds will battle it out as the summer season pushes for yet one more beach day on a little sand bar that ‘time’ forgot, promoting what our Irish friend Liam Neeson, part time actor, part time night club comic, is fond of saying,

“…there’s no time”!

Looking above deck, one can make out an ancient stone border fence from days of ‘yore, reminding US of the walls WE build to keep US apart from one another as opposed to being apart of…

Barriers built to blind most from what WE truly ALL are;


Compartmentalization is the key to the current “system’s” success.  No one knows what the other is doing, thus, much of the secrecy, sorcery and savagery goes unchallenged, as WE utilize “FACEBOOK” (for the CIA’s pleasure), to “communicate” with one another as if that replaces the human touch, the real life face to face interaction that reflects the TRUE reality of who and what we really all are deep down inside;


Take that walk in nature to reconnect with the Highest POWER.

Before it’s too late!

Have a great week end folks!

You’ve got mail! (2.0)

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:35 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun laden, lush, lovely and quite liquid island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on another glorious late summer morning on a little sand bar that ‘time’ forgot.  A cool Tuesday, The Twenty-Third Day of August, 2016, and as Sea Cape Cod has pointed out via the great late night comic and part time actor, Ireland’s favorite son, Liam Neeson, “…there’s no time”. A notion evident when one strolls down Ocean Avenue, here in Hyannis; a place once filled with people, now only timeless bird song and flowers that remain…

If that were only true in U.S. presidential politics.  It’s a good thing it’s really not, because high political theater has always been with civilizations from the dawn of man.  Just ask William Shakespeare, he’ll tell ya! (if that is your real name).  Hillary Clinton (Democrat nominee for the most powerful selected, I mean, “elected”, position the world currently knows), made an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE“, a late night comedy talk show only on ABC!, last night and mocked ‘The Donald Trump” (Republican offering), for his recent comments about her emails/corruption while serving as this nation’s Secretary of State, stating, “…they are so boring”. Below is another unsecured/leaked email that proves this beyond a shadow of a doubt…

Have a good Tuesday folks!

“Hi, listen, could you come over and take the dogs?  Plus would you also take care of that leaky faucet?  I would also like to know where the check is from Goldman Sachs?  We were there only last week and I went well over the forty-five minutes, in fact, I should have received more than 500 large, although, you have to admit, it’s a pretty good gig?  Really, who in their right mind would give me all that money to talk about “policy”, when we all know it is already cut in stone?  I guess what the masses don’t know won’t hurt them.  The American people can be summed up in that new Netflix show “Trailer Park Boys”, don’t you think?  “Bubbles” being the wise man of the crew…  I mean come on, policy?  Laughing out loud!”

Good Evening…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 4:35 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the now cloudy, cool, breezy island of Nantucket! Good to be with you on this lazy Sunday afternoon, the 21st day of August, 2016, and what a day across the board!  The sun ducked in now for the day, but if one was lucky enough to be here for a late summer dip into Nantucket Sound, you are well aware of what is being implied.   The chill in the air after a long swim indicates the near end of the summer season once again, for it won’t be long before the kids are back at school, the adults are back to work and everything is right with the world.

At least that’s the Donald Trump plan for America, as he attempts to woo the African-American vote from Hillary.  Good luck with that one…

Although, one must hand it to ‘The Donald’, for, should he win this selection, I mean “election” coming up in November, the U.S. presidency on the line, as well as a whole boat load of other jobs that seem to be rather irrelevant these days, he would outshine the great Ronald Reagan in pomp and circumstance, as the nation blindly goes forward with the real agenda (21) that the national propaganda outlets, I mean national media outlets, never, ever, let the masses in on, the calling it in will be the newest fad.  His rise to this nomination defies all odds…

Who Knows?

“…they love me on Cape Cod!  I am right or am I right?  Please, please, please enough with the standing ovations already jeez… What I need more than more adoring attention is for yous’ to give me the go, go, go ahead and just give me your damn vote in November folks  Because if you do not, well, shame on you, and shame on your whole family, indeed shame on this entire God forsaken nation!  Because believe yous’ me, if Hillary Clinton gets in, well, ah, I don’t really know what will happen, but it won’t be good, that I can assure you…  Did you try the caviar?  It’s really quite exquisite, anyway, what I am worried about the most is the fact that my tweets have been construed as calling it in, offensive and what did she say again?, just like I do with George S. over on ABC or Joe and Mika on MSNBC, what?  You think I am going to drive all the way downtown with the traffic on Broadway to do their little interviews?  Please… We are going to make America great again by any means possible, so if that means selling off the National Parks to the Chinese, then so be it!  WE already did that? Along with a lot of other stuff like all the gold that does not exist in Fort Knox?  Listen, this is a big job and we need a big man to do it, I’m sorry, but Hillary has seen too many things going on behind the curtain if you know what I mean, and quite frankly can’t be trusted, whereas I can.. Just ask my wife, she’ll tell yous’.  Forget about it hey ohhhh!  As I put my chips on the table where they belong, speaking of chips, please visit the newly renovated Trump Casino in downtown Atlantic City!  Half price on the prime rib, but no seconds OK?  I”m looking at you Bernie you old dog.  Please folks, only one per customer.  You’re killing me with all the gluttony at these buffets, take it easy yous’ overweight, dumb ed down American idiots!  Oh, and by the way, if any of yous’ morons would like to see a show when yous’ all are visiting, please, let me know, that’s just the kind of guy I am.  Don’t forget to tip your waitresses too, they only make 2 bucks an hour and that ‘ain’t going up any time soon, you know what I mean? (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).  Anything for the Stockholm Syndrome d, radiated, fluoridated, fleeced and floundering American.   Every voting man or woman; black or white, gay or straight, lizard or human, it matters not.  Trump out!”

Have a good week ahead folks!

“Spanish Eyes”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:24 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun dripped, blue skied, gentle breeze led, pristine island of Nantucket! Great to be with you once again on this glorious Friday morning, this Nineteenth Day of August, 2016.  The sand bar was greeted early ‘down on the docks’ of historic Hyannis Harbor by an yet another breath-taking sunrise that will usher in a perfect week end for all of the wonderful people who visit these shores mostly in the summer months.  People from all over the world, such as Spain and France, walking the very paths and beaches that former U.S. President John F. Kennedy and Family once walked, swam and sailed.  Off the beaten path places such as “Barrier Beach” in Hyannis Port, a “private beach”, however, should you happen to wander there and meet any resistance, don’t worry, just tell them Sea Cape Cod sent ya!

Your Spanish Eyes are always welcome here! Safe trip back to that great country, and please, don’t be stranger!

Sea Cape Cod received a private ‘tweet’ from one Donald Trump of late, the ‘assumptive?‘ Republican offering in this year’s U.S. presidential selection, I mean “election” process.  It read something like this…,

“…we need a lousy four points to pull even with ‘dat cunning, mean, old, crooked Hillary!  Don’t these people know that I will build that wall to keep US safe from those ‘dangerous’ illegal ‘aliens’?  Don’t they know I will help the rich with my joke of a tax plan?  Blindly go into the Middle East and make it worse than it already is?  Continue to denigrate and destroy our beautiful Mother Gaia?  Maintain the status quo of the El-ite with polices that trap almost all of humanity in a never ending tread mill of debt and interest payments that can never be re payed?  Continue Wall Street’s fraud and freak show casino that sports sky high liabilities and risk in the way of derivatives that could and probably will cripple the world’s economy in a melt down ten times worse than the crashes of 2008 and 1929 combined? Just ask Hyman Minsky, he’ll tell ya!  All done in order to keep the masses in the dark, forcing them into that poverty mentality, heavy on scarcity and fear.  One the keeps those huddled unclean GMO eating folk in that oppressed and enslaved fractional reserve banking system forever… Don’t these dumb people know “I” can do this so much better than she?  What gives?  Do you like the new leather, the color is African White Ivory by the way, on the seats of my new 767 Boeing Jet?  Well, do you?


Have a great week end ALL!

A Butterfly and an Angel

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:44 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, cooler, soon to be sunny once again island of Nantucket!  Good to be with you on this grey Thursday morning, ‘down on the docks’ of Historic Hyannis Harbor, the Eighteenth Day of August, 2016.  Sea Cape Cod, Hayseed, offers up this for those who may feel as if they have lost their way in this crazy, kooky, zany, madcap world we all collectively share in; only for this moment in ‘time’…

“A Butterfly and an Angel”

‘We cannot see angels

yet we know they are near,

we cannot touch an angel

yet we know they are here…

Just look around you

see the lovely butterfly,

sailing high in the sky of blue

fluttering, swirling up so high.

With it’s magic wings

it can wipe away our tears,

it’s beauty is so breath-taking

I know it’s an Angel hovering near.

God sent these beautiful butterflies

they visit us as they soar and play,

they are really tiny angels

floating unseen among us every day…

They are here to help us

these angels in disguise,

they have taken an earthly body

of hundreds of lovely butterflies.

They seem not to notice us

traveling on wings of fragile lace,

they dart among flower petals

their journey takes them many a place.

As you look around and see a butterfly

the delicate wings in flutter,

I feel the closeness of God,

as the Angel

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the less humid, windy, wild and wonderful island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this blustery Wednesday morning here on little old Cape Cod–The Seventeenth Day of August, 2016–and the famous aforementioned islands that host presidents, kings, queens, dukes, earls and princes, past, present, future; all silent witnesses to the  beauty that draws them there in the first place…

For even in this world of broken dreams and hardened hearts, rampant greed, and blind ambition, one can break the wicked matrix/spell of man made barriers by being in nature itself, immersed in all of it’s glory; thereby eliminating the burden of “self” altogether…


Have a great day!

“Pops” by the SEA…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:28 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cooler, sun dripped, breezy, easy, sleepy island of Nantucket! Great to be back with you on this still rather humid Monday morning, ‘down on the docks’, The Fifteenth Day of August, 2016. “Broadcasting” LIVE once again from this quiet Hyannis Harbor after a very busy week end that included “Pops by the Sea”, brought to you by the famous “Boston Pops” orchestra conducted aptly by one great maestro; the name Lockhart, Keith Lockhart.

Indeed, yesterday, this “humble”? ‘reporter’ took a long, long walk/run/swim/bike all up and down the southern shores of this little sand bar that ‘time’ forgot, lo, on the hottest day yet this year, temperatures well into the mid-90’s, stumbling across thousands of people standing in line on Main Street waiting to get in to the Village Green to witness this annual event.  Later that evening, sitting on the deck, enjoying a beautiful sunset, a warm sultry breeze blowing in from the south, one could hear those magical strings emanating from the viola, violin and cello; ushering in some sanity in an otherwise insane world…

The universal, haunting, hallowed sounds of classical music are rarely heard in this day and age, especially when played by the sea…

Have a great week ahead folks!

The Bridge; “Taken”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:14 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sultry, steamy, sexy, soft sunned and quite warm island of Nantucket! Good to be back with you on this humid Wednesday morning, broadcasting LIVE from ‘down on the docks’ of historic Hyannis Harbor, on little old Cape Cod, that strip of sand that ‘time’ forgot, this Tenth Day of August, 2016.  It is yet another great beach day for those headed out to Jetty’s Beach, Surfside Beach, or Madaket Beach on Nantucket, Long Beach at Craigville, Dowses Beach in Osterville, or even venturing as far as the Cape Cod National Sea Shore and Race Point; where the sands of ‘time’ make one comprehend the genius of one hilarious late night Irish stand up comic and part time actor Liam Neeson, and his many now famous quotes from a plethora of 6th grade level Hollywood entertainment spoofs that have “Taken” our hearts…, statements such as,

“…there’s no time!”

Thank you Liam! And God Bless those horses in New York you love as much as Sea Cape Cod! As well as the wild Connemara Ponies of Ireland, may they take you to where you wish to be…

The month of August round these here parts of historic majesty is usually made up of the more well to do folk, who do, like most Americans, take the whole month of August off.  Taking the ‘time’ to smell those Rugosa Roses, watching a whale breach off Stellwagen Bank, witness the kindness of a father to a son when he has him on his shoulders watching the “Eagle” make it’s landing at ‘The Steamship Authority”, perhaps splashing around in the cool, clean, refreshing, blessed waters of Nantucket Sound somewhere along stunning Long Beach, or simply sitting by the marshes’ edge and being with nature’s best, i.e. the Snowy Egret, The Great Blue Heron, a giant snapping turtle, a brilliant red Cardinal, a giant Osprey, or a beautiful Swan swimming silently by…, or the swallows that drift in and out of one’s consciousness, perhaps waking it back up to it’s original desire and purpose on this beautiful planet.

Who knows?

The point is, summer is still in full swing!  So get on your bike, your plane, your train, your car, your moped, or your Bircham and pay US a visit!  We will, as always, leave that Light on for ya! Like the good folks who play all the great music one enjoys when traveling down these ancient paths.  Such as the genius work of DJ’s Jim Sands and Bill Stevens of 98.7 Koffee FM, or Brandon and Steve from 97.7 ACK FM; Nantucket’s only true radio station!  Hallelujah! Playing songs that bring this hamlet to back life; bringing one musicians that rock it all night long my friends!

‘For after all is said and done, music is the universal language’…

We put in a request for ‘the Donald’, but have yet to hear a response, however, he may ‘tweet’ some RSVP later, finger’s crossed!  Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, however, seems to have gotten the message as she will be visiting OUR fine U.S. President Barack Obama in Chilmark, sometime later during this most blessed month that most just let pass on by…

Stay cool America! and remember, ‘it’s only a game’… (credit: Bill Hicks)

Going Home…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:36 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the delightfully sun breezed, cloudless, intellectual and intrepid island of Nantucket! Wonderful to be with you on this most glorious of Sunday mornings, The Seventh Day of August, 2016, a great day here on this little sand bar that ‘time’ truly forgot.  Isn’t that right late night comic Irish stand up/part time actor Liam Neeson?  Who famously stated in his many fine Hollywood blockbuster ‘reality’ TV shows, “….there’s no time!” For ’tis true, when visiting these shores of say Hyannis Port or Chilmark, Provincetown or Edgartown, one is overwhelmed with the lack of that invisible trace that marks all things; great and small.  What those men and women did with said ‘time’ is what really counts in the end.  And the leaders, writers, poets, musicians, artists, heroes and warriors, their lives will be mostly be summed up by the wit and whims of said writers of the real history books to come…


“…too early for flapjacks?”

Welcome to the Cape U.S. President Barack Obama! and his wonderful wife Michelle and their beautiful girls who recently flew into Joint Air Base Cape Cod, as they will be spending the remainder of this month on that fabled island of Martha’s Vineyard.  An isle discovered way, way back in 1602, by one Captain Gosnold, of Great Britain, who named the incredible land after his daughter Martha.

Have a grand time Mr. President, hopefully ignoring all of the political nonsense for just a spell… Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will also be making an appearance ‘at some juncture’, but the black helicopter at the Stop & Shop in Hyannis did not give Sea Cape Cod that information, so I suppose you will have to get it from more reputable sources, such as CNN or FOX, who will spin the laundry any which way you like it, akin to an order at a 1970’s Burger King as it were…

Yesterday, sitting in one of my parking spots, on Pleasant Street, watching the passing parade go by at HIGH NOON, I was struck by the steady, sad and solemn stream of vehicles from every state passing by, mostly with vacant, longing looks in their headlight eyes, a tear or two was witnessed as well.  Cars from Tennessee, Kentucky, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, California, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, South Carolina, Kansas, Missouri, Alabama, Alaska, Wyoming, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Arizona, and Arkansas…., all departing off of the Steamship Authority’s “Eagle” or “Nantucket”. The really big ships, or the fast ferry “Iyannough”, all moving at a snails’ pace north up Pleasant, past South, and on up to Main Street to take them to the high ways and by ways that will eventually lead them back to whence they came…


Safe trip ALL!

The cars and trucks, boats and planes, bikes and kayaks, all bidding their summer vacation adieu for this season, as they sadly take their place on the back of their owner’s minds somewhere in a garage, barn or storage unit…  All with the same sentiment in “their” collective inanimate minds,

“…I wished it would have lasted a little longer.”

Take heart though; this hamlet by the SEA will be going no where an time soon, God Willing, and with any LUCK, you and yours will be back in a ‘Jiffy’.

Or is it “JIF”?

Have a splendid Sunday folks!

Welcome again Mr. President!
