On April 20th, 2018, the Queen Anne’s County Waterman Association and Grasonville VFW Post 7465 hosted a Waterman’s Story Swap, an event designed to celebrate the history and cultural heritage of the men of the Chesapeake Bay.20180420_174212

The audience awaits the beginning of the Story Swap.

Harry and sheaHarry Davidson & Shea Springer opened the show.

HARRY DAVIDSON is a native Kent Island Eastern Shoreman, a waterman, and an ecological activist, with a great interest in saving the menhaden fish, a critical link in the Chesapeake Bay food chain. Harry’s music captures the essence of his love for the bay and the lives of watermen, and the songs on his CD, Songs of the Chesapeake Bay, tell the waterman’s story through that music.

A Story about Steampunk Sky Pirates? Yes please!

James Harrington's Blog of Geek and Writing

Pathway to paradise

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Today was the day
when all was supposed
soon to be disposed,
worldly belongings
worries, longings,
deep slumber
is just so near,
eternal rest
with certain fears
of unknown,
insidious, grown,
scares, multilayers,
do not spare
raw nerves,
notice has been served
it is time,
sleep now
wake up to
reality new
after the end,
soul renews
seeing on the other end
long lost relations, friends,
smiling, waving,
reassuring
beautiful green,
doorway alluring,
pathway near,
cross without fear
spilling emotions,
unable to bear,
home forever,
uncontrollably cry
a beloved’s kiss,
wipes tears dryIMG_2218.JPG

Sandwiches – The American Quick Fix!

The sandwich has a long history, but it hasn’t always been as embraced in America as it is now. It’s hard to imagine, but the sandwich was once thought of as a symbol of a colonial past that most patriotic Americans wanted to forget.
