Driving to Provincetown on Saturday with Faith and Mavis for an annual longing gaze at a village composed of hardy figures. Blue heron. Activist. Portuguese fisherman. Artist. Small business owner. Writer. Housekeeper. Gardener. Baker. Public radio DJ. Waitstaff. Park ranger. Busker. Librarian. Cat on the side street. Spider in the window. Whale in the harbor. Squid on the pier. Cranberries in the bog. Vikings in the sand. Heart on the sleeve.
