holy shit, a never-circulated 1966 live velvet underground recording of them performing the nico-sung reed/cale tune "little sister," from one of the late summer shows in #provincetown, per one comment. http://velvetforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=146187

This Friday's art appreciation moment is a piece by Ed Christie (yes, former Muppet guy and well-known puppet designer) as shown at Alden Gallery in Provincetown. Would you ever guess that this is constructed from resin and dryer lint? #art #artist #EdChristie #AldenGallery #sculpture #Provincetown #PTown #DryerLint

A sculpture, somewhat in the shape of a lung, on a pedestal. The work is marbled brown and turquoise in color.

Provincetown’s annual Traffic Hearing fields resident requests, and “doing something” to limit unnecessary car traffic in the town center is a perennial topic. Every year there’s no action. This year’s response from town staff: “Not Recommend.
Although staff strongly support measures to create a more pedestrian and bike friendly street, this proposal is impractical and unenforceable.” 🤦 #Traffic #Provincetown #CapeCod #UrbanTransportation #UrbanPlanning #BikeTooter

Test reads: “6. Request by Doug Walker to limit traffic on Commercial Street to deliveries, residents and handicapped to create a more pedestrian and bike friendly street.
Team Recommendation: Not Recommend.
Although staff strongly support measures to create a more pedestrian and bike friendly street, this proposal is impractical and unenforceable.”

This Friday's art appreciation moment is Equilibrium by Cynthia Cole, now on view at The Commons, Provincetown, along with works from the other members of the Outer Cape Art Collective. You can view all of the exhibited works at: https://issuu.com/maryannol/docs/flip_book_ocac_v4_pdf

An abstract painting with a gray undercoating and a whitish and yellowish figure in two parts in the foreground. The upper part is precariously balanced on the lower part at a point where the two objects are very narrow, somewhat resembling a whale tail in a vertical position. There are brushes of pink and even orange in various nondescript locations in the painting.

Slim pickings, but really a foragers delight. Cool afternoon, sun behind, illuminating cranberries. Gently move the twigs and reveal more. Picked about 3 cups in 25 mins. Will go again tomorrow. #foraging #cranberries #NationalSeashore #PTown #Provincetown

I took the day off today to tackle adult life administrivia. Having completed these tasks, I feel a wonderful sense of relaxation. They are done! I don't have to think about them anymore!

Bliss.

I am taking the next two days off to go to the #LGBTQ homeland, by which I mean #Provincetown, Massachusetts. I will spend time with my beloved, with #recovery folks, stare at the ocean and eat exactly one slice of Spiritus pizza.

One of many Smiley Faces that Mother Nature created out in the #dunes. #ProvinceLands #Provincetown #NationalSeashore #SmileyFace

A wind swept bank in the dunes where the grasses have swept the sand in circular patterns somewhat resembling smiley faces.

Headed out to a favorite cranberry bog in the #dunes but never made it there. A few #BeachPlum bushes that I've never known to produce were just loaded. We picked 2 gallons, limited only by what we could carry. #foraging #WildFood #ProvinceLands #NationalSeashore #Provincetown

A typical scraggly beach plum bush in the dunes, with deep blue ripe fruit all along the stems.

Went #foraging out in the #dunes of the #ProvinceLands, to a place that in the past has reliably had later season #BeachPlums.....and, nada, none, not even old drops, as if the very healthy looking bushes just produced no fruit this year. I've seen that happen a time or two in the past. So, quick side trip to get enough #cranberries for the next two breakfasts. #WildFoods #Ptown #Provincetown #NationalSeaShore

A #noreaster has dragged blades of grass across the sand, drawing arcs like a compass, recording the wind. Taken in early spring of this year.

At last, the killer of Ruth Marie Terry, the poor "Lady in the Dunes" whose murder put a chill on the exuberance of #Provincetown in 1974, has been identified as her husband. He probably killed a previous wife and stepdaughter too. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2023/08/28/metro/lady-of-the-dunes-closed/

Line chart showing trip to work mode share with “work from home” (36%) overtaking driving (31%) in 2021, walk or bike at 26%, and bus at 2%. I didn’t graph “other“ so it doesn’t total 100%.

I took a lot of photos in #Provincetown this weekend, but this one captures a brief moment of what I loved best. Not the pageantry, the parties, the dining, the shopping, or even the incredible beaches. Just a quiet moment of #queer joy, existence as both everyday resistance and ordinary life, all summed up in a simple statement:

We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it.

I am leaving this place changed for the better. P-town gave me a glimpse of a better world, and I hope to come back soon.

Race Point #Beach, near #Provincetown, #CapeCod, #Massachusetts USA

This photo was taken on a mid-March day after a spring nor’easter cleared away, although the wind was still high. The currents, wind and waves give the outermost cape a spiral shape. This is the area where the Gulf of Maine, Cape Cod Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean meet. The view is approximately northward.

My father Donald died 19 years ago today. Here he is in his happiest of happy places, our old place in #Provincetown, doing something you should never try at home! But Dad's barbecued chicken was always delicious, eaten on the deck in this beautiful place. Thanks, Dad, for everything. I miss you every day.

Hello, my name is Lisa Williams. I work at at a large NPR affiliate in #Boston. I collect #contemporaryart and restore vintage #motorcycles.

I run the Mastodon account for our newsroom, but specifically chose a small and LGBTQ+ focused server for my personal account. It's my intention to mostly talk about non-work and non-news related content here, including #gardening, #Provincetown, #Providence, #books, #streaming, #writing and more. #queer #lgbtq
