Christine Norris Submits “New banner rose on the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse on Middle Street.”

As the leaves fell and the votes were counted a new banner rose on the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse on Middle Street. It proclaims “Help Mother” with an image of Mother Earth. Congregation member Sally Waite, who has been making banners in Gloucester since Covid 19 and in Portland for years before that, loves Gloucester’s Babson Boulders. Sewed into her new banner, Roger Babson’s nearly 100 year old message about family responsibility takes on a new meaning, reminding us to respect the interdependent web of existence we all depend on.

The tooth fairy is not my friend these few months.  Sadly a tooth that has been on the edge for a year gave up the ghost last weekend.  I have an appointment with the endontist on Thursday am to take out the tooth.  So no Nia or Restorative Yoga on Thursday.  Classes resume on Monday November 16th!

Harrier on the Hunt

We took a ride to Parker River Wildlife Refuge seeking eagles, so I was very excited to spot a white tail sailing around the marshes. Closer looks indicated it was definitely not an eagle, but a hawk; probably a Northern Harrier. It was hunting relentlessly and another even joined up briefly. It’s very intriguing to watch nature up close and personally at places like Parker River. It is well worth the ride if you like to watch birds and other animals. There are also hiking trails and beaches to visit. We have a lifetime senior pass (very reasonable) and there are several other programs for cheaper/free access. Info available here. These passes are good several federal recreation sites. Military, 4th and 5th graders are eligible for FREE passes! Check out the link above. We are very fortunate to have this resource so close to us.

In the meantime, some Norther Harrier on the hunt photos. If I am mistaken on identification, I welcome input. I am no expert beyond knowing these aren’t my eagles!
