LETTER: Plugging Into Extraordinarily Rich Quality-of-Life Opportunities
Sometimes, I fear that my fellow Grotonians either take for granted or are not plugged-into the extraordinarily rich quality-of-life opportunities literally in our midst.
Yesterday, Carol Canner took a dozen participants in the Prescott School Community Center to the Fitchburg Art Museum to a private viewing of Groton artist Otto Piene's spectacular "Fire & Light" MIT-innovative art exhibit: good company, great lunch and images that still wander through my thoughts.
The night before, a dozen First Parish UU of Groton members met at Lawrence Academy historian Bob Kniffen's classic home to rehearse the stories that will be told at the May 11th. (7:00-9:00) "StoryTelling for Adults" event. Superstar minister, Rev. Elea Kemler, tells the best stories from the pulpit every Sunday, but her inspiration motivates so much quality-of-life activity, that I reorganized my life to savor the buzz that follows.
I raised my family on the North Shore and after a decade of national security work in Washington, I took over my daughter's Groton home, while she went off to get a Ph.D in Philosophy. Landing in Groton at random, I send this letter of thanks to this community and to remind us of how fortunate we are, even in troubled times.
Enjoy the Spring,
