Main Street

This time of year, recreational boating season is finished.  Here in Buzzards Bay, there have been plenty of boats going up and down Main Street, heading to their winter storage places.  As a boating enthusiast, it's always interesting to watch them parading around town.

Fate

The path of our lives may very well be predetermined.  We exist primarily within, the nurturing comfort zone we need.  We can study, learn, process, and then project a more personal customized, and adventurous self.  Where we came from and where we would like to go.  There always seems to be resistance, the persuasions from others we know and trust.  But fate prevails...we are who we are.  Like it or not.
