whom we depend
may we ascend

The shot is perfect. But this time I can not understand the spirit of the message, I get lost in translation. I am sincere this time.

Thanks for being honest….I live in the Hamptons…a summer resort where tourists from all over the world visit starting last weekend, Memorial Day. Our quiet paradise is overtaken, becomes crowded with second homeowners and day-trippers…so we, the local people, must be tolerant of those who support our economy. I hope that explains it….

Or perfect, now if I understand. Sometimes it’s good to take me by the hand. Socrates said: I know not anything. Thanks for your explanation.

Thanks Smidge…do you celebrate up there? Probably not…

Meryl, I considered adding another few lines concerning the focal point of your pic, but decided it was too obvious!

That’s OK Jeff, maybe something else will occur to you…

Such an accurate depiction of the onset of ‘season’ in The Hamptons! Terrific Shot and your verse is the PERFECT match! You need to get this one in the Southampton Press ~speaks volumes in so few words. xo

Thanks Robyn, I hope followers from other places get the gist of what happens on the East End at the end of May each year. If not, I guess they’ll learn here….:)

Yes – and if I can get myself to the beach on a good day, I can do part III of my series (Off-Season, Pre-Season and now Season). Between the 2 of us we will have covered all aspects… oooo except the club scene — haven’t been there that in ages…maybe can go on assignment together 🙂 Bordybarn perhaps – yikes ??? hee hee 😉

Here is a second verse for your poem, focused on the skinny shopper. “Can’t offend. Miss fashion trend. Likes to spend. Parties to attend. Does not blend. Fair weather friend” Look at the mom, her daughter, and the guy on the bench all checking her out!

Finally! The ice is melting, other contributors are stepping up!. Who is next? What’s the worst that can happen, maybe everyone will love new verses? An interactive blog could be a big deal, or perhaps it already is, I lead a sheltered life.
