The physical world is a place of ever-changing wonder. I love observing, and occasionally capturing a moment in time. I do this for my own pleasure, but Nichole S. has been kind to share some of my photos on GMG from time to time. Now Joey has given me the opportunity to post on my own, and I hope you will find some pleasure in these moments. Paul Horovitz

Great Dinner at Antique Table!

We returned to the Antique Table in Manchester by the Sea for the first time since January. It felt very much like a before/after COVID scenario. We loved it the last time we were there, but got caught in the pandemic before we could return. It was equally wonderful, even with necessary protocols in place.

Jim had Gnocchi Basilico and I ordered Haddock Francese. We each cleaned our plates and would reorder the same except for the other tempting menu items. The bread and drinks were lovely additions to a marvelous dining experience. The atmosphere is welcoming including the background music! Special shout outs to our server Laura and Oscar for their friendly attentiveness. I left feeling very happy and satisfied. It is definitely worth the short ride. We will return soon!

Becca’s Feat on Feet

I had the pleasure of photographing Becca Pizzi as she finished her 17th Boston Marathon last weekend. Her 16th and 17th were virtual….as the official marathon date back on Patriots Day in April was canceled. Even more impressive than running 17 Boston Marathons (hard to beat, right?!) is the fact that Becca has also completed the World Marathon Challenge….twice.

The World Marathon Challenge consists of running 7 marathons, on 7 continents, in just 7 days. Becca started her world marathon in Antarctica and finished in Australia. You can learn more about Becca’s amazing “feat on feet”…..and order her book, with of course, the very same name HERE. My two copies of “Becca’s Feat on Feet” arrived on Thursday and I was so excited to share her story with my students. Later in the day I overheard them playing “marathon runner” on the playground. Talk about inspirational. Thanks, Becca!
