About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

    OMG…that’s going on my Facebook page! My friends out of state will flip out. (No pun intended.) The things that go on “normally” in Gloucester bewilder them as it is. I’m still explaining the Greasy Pole!

    Absolutely love them! Brought a huge grin to my face. Excellent!

  3. Ann Kennedy says:

    So fun! I suppose you need to step in cornmeal for traction.

    • E.J. says:

      Hmmm. Hadn’t thought about the slipping factor. You’re right; corn meal would probably work. Then after stepping out in style, you could just flip them into a hot frying pan.

    Someone has got to “step up” and make these (without real fish, or course). The perfect Gloucester footwear. I found this photo on the internet.

  5. Judy says:

    I would buy a pair (non-scale version…)!

  6. Eileen says:

    Love them- I would buy a pair for everyone in my family….

    I laughed so hard I got my coffee up my nose! Could give a whole new meaning to “Sole food” and to anyone who was in Rockport’s Miss Wagners 7th grade history class— the “flat foot floogies” could become the “flat foot fish flip flop floogies” – man can you get a better tongue twister!

    Nice one EJ!

  8. Vicki says:

    Where can I buy these? On line?

  9. I have a few friends that would love it.LOL

  10. You crack me up – thanks for the laugh! I forwarded this to all of my “Up the Line” friends. Best to you, Cindy
