Family Time

There are two things I take completely for granted, but are completely necessary for me when I write: time and quiet. The performers on stage at freestyle love supreme are afforded neither of these luxuries, but wow can these word geniuses pump out the language…

There are lots of adjectives one could land on to paint a picture of Provincetown: remote, raw, real, wild, fun, accepting, loose, indulgent, inspiring, open, artistic, picturesque, vivid, quirky, sweeping, entertaining, eye-popping, creative, gorgeous, quixotic, mercurial, engaging, alluring, relaxing, quiet, loud, salty, gray, blue, dog friendly, winsome, peaceful, and fiery are but a few. But if I had boil all those words into one it would most definitely be COLORFUL..

I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio.  I carry my midwestern roots proudly and am often asked by New Yorkers I meet: “You’re not from around here right?”  Fine by me.  I try to visit Cleveland when I can, which translates to about once or twice per year.  As time is limited during these visits my first priority is to see family, friends, and dogs of family friends.  What I have neglected to see during these visits is Cleveland and all that this city has to offer.  Well that changed this weekend…
