“Believe those who seek the truth, doubt those who have found it.”
André Gide (1869-1951)
A native of Normandy, Gide published his first novel at 22 and went on to write dozens more, as well as plays, essays and autobiographical works, receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1947. Controversy swirled around him almost his entire life, principally for his open attraction to men much younger than himself, and for his marriage to his cousin, never consummated, while siring a daughter with another woman. In his politics Gide seemed to worship Soviet Communism from afar, until he visited Russia in the 1930’s, after which he became its vocal critic. He spent a significant portion of his life in the then French colonies of North and Central Africa and passed the bulk of the Second World War in Tunisia, but ultimately returned to Paris before his death.

My darling daughter Liv and I stopped at Passports for lunch on the way to the train station in Boston. Although brief, it was wonderful to have her home for the holiday. Now 23, when she was a tiny tot she announced Thanksgiving was her favorite holiday, and it continues to be so. Lunch was fantastic; she had the chock-full-of lobster meat Captain Joe’s lobster roll and I had the simply scrumptious shrimp and vegetable saute.
A group of us from Good Morning Gloucester are the guest artists at Passports for the months of November and December and all our photos would make wonderful gifts. Stop into Passports and have a bite to eat while enjoying our photography show!
