THOSE CABINETS....
In the infamous liquor boxes I’ve got stashed
in the upstairs closet, there must be fifty or so of those wonderful cabinet
shots—those stiff, cardboard photographs of some of my stiff ancestors posed in
various photographic studios. I love the props—the cha...

SWIM & ITCH...
Whenever I see one of
those old visual prompts on Sepia Saturday, I know exactly where to go; I grab
a cup of coffee and head up the stairs to the boxes of family memorabilia I’ve
tucked away in a closet up there. There’s all kinds of stuff packed into thre...

THE TOURAINE, BOSTON...
Ten or so years ago,
I inherited a scrapbook from my mother. She had compiled it in the 1930s when
she lived with her parents and sister in the Boston area. The whole family
loved the theatre (not “theater,” mind you…); they went often, and my mother
pasted...

CLOTHESPINS....
In the beginning, women
just spread wet laundry over their fence rails or the shrubs in the back yard;
at dinner time (noon, on a New England farm) they went outside and flipped
everything over. Laundry lines appeared, tied between trees, from the sides of

Hi, Doug -- missed you on Sepia Saturday lately; found this, so know you're still blogging! Never been to Dead Horse Beach; I remember Singing Beach in Manchester-by-the-Sea; I remember some place that had rides and games....anyway, wanted to say hello.

UMBIES....
I have a collection
of canes and umbrellas packed into a ceramic stand; it’s nestled in the corner
of my living room, tucked up near the front door. There’s my father’s old
cane—a rubber-tipped number he used for security as he got older; my great-aunt’s

TWO CHILDREN....
When I was sifting
through old photographs the other day, I was struck by the fact that I’ve got a
lot of photos of children: children in sets and clusters of two, three, four and
more; children sitting on front steps, at picnic tables; boys in pup tents,

CHANT....
I found it in a flea
market, tucked away in a broken-down cardboard box that was shoved halfway beneath
a display table. What caught my eye was a corner of an old newspaper—and I’ve always been a newsprint fan—so I pulled the
box out into the aisle, sat dow...
