Person online advises to review your own attitude toward the crows, suggesting that if they irritate you then you get more mad, the more mad you get, the more irritated you become. I was sitting home for a half hour and never noticed the crows until Kate mentioned them, but during that time span that’s all she could think about.

Rocky Neck: Big Fun, Big Crowd for Big Tiny Art

Scenes from the inaugural Big Tiny Art fundraiser for Rocky Neck at the Rudder, October 18, 2017. Inspired by the format and scale, scores of originals were created by local artists for this festive and beautifully orchestrated benefit. Congratulations to artist Kathleen Archer and all the volunteers who put this togther. I’m told they’ll do another. If I receive a list of participating artists, I’ll add the names back in. Some of the artists signed verso; some were a mystery. The lively venue, The Rudder, served a delicious, memorable and generous dinner!




Rocky Neck – Jeanne Greenleaf Gallery

The Jeanne Greenleaf Gallery on Rocky Neck is open through the end of October. Greenleaf features figurative series that are as much about perception: large floating swimmer oil paintings and smaller pastels of fish or the human form. She renders the luminosity of the natural world in watercolor. Greenleaf resides in northern Florida, and is a former New England resident, with family still here. While in Gloucester she lives by Coffins Beach.

Rockport, Texas resident Rhonda Cantu shares her Ruby-throated Hummingbird video with Good Morning Gloucester readers. The clip was taken one month after Hurricane Harvey devastated her community. Hurricane Harvey wiped out all of their trees and plants. Robin received donations of sugar, water, and feeder poles from Wildbirds Unlimited to help keep the hummers fed.

We wish Rhonda, Rockport Texas residents, and all the victims of the three horrendous hurricanes of 2017 best wishes in their continued recovery.
