A Seaside Ballet


At Weymouth, there was a firm but well-intentioned sea-breeze, just enough to inspire the deck chairs into a kind of choreographed ballet.

I hope some of the stories in it ring a bell or are funny. One of the books is more appropriate than the other. A Place to Live is more about the people who lived in my hometown from 1848 to 1998. A kind of living genealogy.

My Life as Abraham Lincoln is a collection of stories about things I remembered or things that happened to me. Getting Buckle Arctics on my feet, grown to large, was an involved process that I described in the book. Even with the wax papers that covered loaves of bread, wrapped around my socks, and my foot shoved between my mother's legs and her pushing for all she was worth, the kitchen chair moved all over the kitchen...

Those kind of stories and other kinds. Hope you like it.

Classic - and classy - English seaside shot. Are we the only country that has these kind of deckchairs?

(giggle) I could see it happening, in my mind's eye I could see that funny ballet.

Lovely! This photo not only fills my eyes, but my imagination!

Great colors. The sky is repeated in the chairs in a vertical manner. I like it.
