Quote of the Week by Greg Bover

“Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits.”

Leroy Robert “Satchel” Paige (1906 – 1982)

Perhaps the greatest pitcher of all time, Paige, an African-American from Mobile, Alabama, was not allowed into Major League Baseball until 1948 when he was 42 years old, the oldest “rookie” ever. He began his professional career in 1926 and pitched for numerous teams in the segregated Negro Leagues, gaining fame not only for his throwing prowess, but also for his ebullience and love of the game. Even at his advanced age he was elected to the All-Star team twice and was finally inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1971 at the urging of Ted Williams and others. Among his other famous sayings: “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

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.
