Couple from Connecticut vesting Gloucester and Cape Ann on a Beautiful Spring Day
I am super excited to write that today I am launching the trailer for my monarch butterfly documentary, Beauty on the Wing: Life Story of the Monarch Butterfly. I hope so much you enjoy watching as much as I have loved creating!
I am asking a huge favor of all my Good Morning Gloucester, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram friends and that is to please share the trailer, hit all like buttons, and if you have time, to please comment.
In seeking funding to finish the film, I am currently in the process of writing grant proposals. Recently, I was invited to join the Filmmakers Collaborative, which is a tremendous and well-respected organization that is providing excellent advice and will also act as the fiscal sponsor for the film. Each filmmaker represented by the Filmmakers Collaborative has a project page on the FC website and I invite you to visit mine here: Filmmakers Collaborative.
Look for Pilar, Meadow, and Atticus in the trailer. They were wonderful and I am so appreciative of their assistance. There were additional kids from our East Gloucester troupe that participated in making the film however, I couldn’t squeeze them all in the trailer. I think you’ll love all the children’s parts in the finished film!
For more information about the documentary, please visit the film’s website here: Beauty on the Wing
My most sincerest thanks to everyone for your kind support!

This green SS Performer find is in great shape except for the ash pan assembly. Everything else I believe can be buffed up to look like new. I bought it with the intention that if my buddies Craig Kimberley or James Eves didn’t want it I was going to keep it for myself. But I could not, in good conscious let it sit there and sell to someone who would not appreciate it. I was secretly hoping neither of them really wanted it so I could keep it for myself but James jumped at the chance and he will be doing the restore. He promises to send in pics of the project.
The Bowl and lid were in excellent shape. The stainless will clean up beautifully with a little bartenders keeper. The frame solid.
I would replace the bolts with stainless but I’m not sure it’s necessary. The only bad…

Even though we did not get a lot of snow this winter, the wind, music of the ocean and the waves have been really impressive.
I admit it. I watched the trailer for Screenagers when it came my way. I sent it to Joey back in February as a maybe post. Leaving aside the merits of the title (Gesundheit!) I was curious about the audience factor.
From their press release: “Get more insight into one of the biggest and unexplored issues of our time…Physician (Stanford trained we are told) and filmmaker, Delaney Ruston decided to make SCREENAGERS when she found herself constantly struggling with her two kids about screen time.”
It’s not in theaters. Communities pay to book the documentary for school, public library, church, synagogue, company, and community center; it can be a fundraiser as well. I thought it might be a good fit for the middle school. A future streaming option could work.
In 1998, I saw Kathleen Chalfant in the play WIT. Multiple times. In this play, we witness a university professor as she lay dying. When the curtain dropped, the audience stayed. Eventually the theater planned facilitated discussions with the cast and audience. I don’t recall them. I kept returning and learning because whoever I went with had a wildly different take. Four stood out: my mother (background in psychology), a friend (a young medical director of a busy NYC hospital), another friend (an older artist), and another friend (social worker).
I think the audience component for this documentary might be like that.
Cue GMG poll- If you were going, who’d you see it with?
There’s a local booking. Good Morning Gloucester’s Cape Ann Community bulletin announced an upcoming show of Screenagers on May 2nd at Waldorf School at Moraine Farm in Beverly.
I had a great little getaway to Vegas back in December. While the pretty sweet minibars were hit rather hard, I was happy to not once feel the need to tear into the Bounce Back Hangover Recovery Kit. Nice touch. How thoughtful of them.
With a detox drink, earplugs, “clear eyes” eye drops, cool mint breath strips, and eye renewal cream…I’m still left to wonder if it would have worked had I not done such a stellar job of pacing myself each day/night.

A benefit Bananas Fashion Show to get the hot air out of City Hall.
Richard Leonard, the owner of the iconic Main Street vintage clothing store, Bananas, is staging one of his rare fashion extravaganzas on Saturday April 23 and Sunday April 24. The production will benefit the Gloucester City Hall restoration fund with the proceeds being used to restore the auditorium’s ventilation system. As Maggie Rosa, Chair of the City Hall Restoration Commission says with a smile, “we are aiming to get the hot air out of City Hall!”
This show, Leonard’s third held to benefit City Hall restoration, will include his Bananarettes, a group of both women and men, some of whom travel from New York City to participate.
The creative black tie Saturday gala starts at 7:00 p.m. and will include live & silent auctions, champagne & dessert – tickets are $75 each. On Sunday the doors open at 2:30 p.m. and the show will include a pick-a-prize auction and light refreshments – tickets are $35 each for adults and $15 for people 18 years and under.
“This being Gloucester, you can dress however you want to, but it’s a lot of fun to wear something different. If you have nothing to wear, go to Bananas and you will find something” says Jan Bell, Co-chair of the event.
Tickets are on sale at Bananas (78 Main St., Gloucester,) Alexandra’s Bread (265 Main St., Gloucester,) and online at Eventbrite. For more information, please contact BananasFashionShow@gmail.com.
