Gloucester Bacheler Civil War Coat Aug 2018 Update

Charles and George King write, “The state of the art museum case has landed! Gloucester artist Jason Burroughs, John Christopher (aka Bonesy) and our mom took care of the assembly and installation at the high school. The set up prep went smoothly with help from Joan Dallin, Adam, Principal Cook, Joe Lucido, Heidi Dallin, and Mike Hale. It’s not 100% finished. An information label will be added soon, and a rededication will be announced for a later date. The field house was named after Bacheler at one time so the placement is cool for that, too.”

Great Americans

John McCain’s death brings to mind patriotism, so my eye (and camera) turn toward the boulevard flags. It’s worth a minute to remember these flags have been dedicated to loved ones and represent people’s hopes and lives.  Here’s in memory of Mary L. Crowingshield.

Blooming Lotus ~

Cape Ann Wellness

Without the mud the lotus would not bloom….

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to start your daily meditation practice or deepen your current practice.

Meditation is an essential tool for bringing a person’s mind back into balance and should be incorporated into everyone’s health regimen. There are varying types of #meditation available depending on a person’s prakruti (your base point) and depending on if a person’s mind is in a state of rajas, tamas, or sattva. For example, a kapha mind should be kept busy. Conversely, a vata mind should be quieted and kept still. A pitta mind should be calmed. So an appropriate meditation technique should be chosen based on a person’s manasa prakruti and what state it is in.

Your life will open up to new experiences as the lotus flower below opens to greet each new day.

Sounds daunting – but it does not…
