|THE CAPTAIN AND ME IN GLOUCESTER LAST SUMMER|
For this week's arts and culture column, I did a story on my own brother. That's right. You've seen him before: commercial fishing Captain Geordie H. King of Eliot, Maine.
Geordie gave me a great interview, which you can READ HERE.
Afterwards, I thought of how every single person in my family, if you meet him or her, is cheerful, friendly, interested, courteous, and kind. They'll ask about you rather than talk about themselves. They'll be funny. They'll laugh at your jokes (up to a point), even if they're not funny.
And to a person, my family knows, recognizes, and loves a bluebird day.
We have always. always known that the ability to notice and remark upon a bluebird day is worth more than any amount of money.
I am off to Omaha, Nebraska this (Friday) morning!
Bizarrely excited to meet the women of the Heartland.
