Maya Angelou Quote of The Week From Greg Bover

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

(1928-    )

Born Marguerite Ann Johnson in St. Louis, Missouri, Angelou was raised in rural Arkansas by her grandmother. Sexually abused at age eight, she did not speak again for five years, during which time she acquired her love of poetry and writing. Although in early adulthood she worked as a pimp, prostitute, and night club dancer, she began to study modern and African dance and had a successful touring career. After a brief marriage, she moved to New York and began to write. Encouraged by friends James Baldwin and Jules Feiffer, she produced the first of seven autobiographies, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings in 1968, which gained widespread acclaim despite its controversial treatment of sexual themes. Angelou went on to write plays, music for movie scores, and to act, appearing in the influential mini-series Roots, and won a Tony award in 1973. Her works won even greater notice after Bill Clinton asked her to read a poem at his first inauguration in 1993. Angelou was a supporter of Hilary Clinton in the 2008 primaries, but was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2011.

MBBS #1 and Willy the Caulker

Joey____

I collected some random photos at the Maine Boat Builders Show (MBBS.)  This is the first of a series – caulking tools. 

Back around 1966 I had a couple bunks where you needed to avoid sleeping on your back lest your eye sockets fill up with water.  Someone advised me to go over to the railways and look up Willy the Caulker (the late Wilfred Amero).  Willy agreed to caulk my entire deck for something like $35 if I remember right, as long as I reefed the seams first.  GREEN DRAGON was at the Beacon at the time and every day for about a week he came over at the end of his day at the railways.  It was really something watching him go at it.  Willy had the touch and my decks were tight for years. 

No modern plastic glop will keep old fir decks tight like cotton driven in right.

Come Support Injured Veterans on July 8…You’re Invited!

Dear Cape Ann Community,

Last week, Joey C. kindly posted information about my special art and charity event called, "You. Are. Beautiful. – A Tribute to Warriors."  I’m hosting the event at Minglewood Tavern in Gloucester on Monday, July 8 at 6:30pm.  This week, I’d like to share a little more information on who we are doing this for, and I hope you will attend.

This is a photo of CPL Todd Love, a Marine and triple amputee who served in Afghanistan with the 1st Recon out of California.  He was injured on October 25, 2010 when he was the point man on a foot patrol and triggered an IED.  He suffered the loss of both his legs above the knee and had severe damage to his left hand, resulting in amputation.

I reached out to Todd recently on facebook because I wanted to photograph him for my "You. Are. Beautiful." project – a celebration of the human spirit and beauty in all people.  In this project, I photograph all different kinds of people, but I especially honor veterans because I feel what they do is one of the ultimate tests of the human mind, body and spirit.

toddLove 

Todd has an amazing spirit and does all kinds of things that will amaze you.  He plays Bach on the piano with one hand, wrestles alligators, jumps out of airplanes, competes in X.T.R.E.M.E. sports competitions and much more.  All with 1 limb and a crazy positive attitude.  Todd loves the "You. Are. Beautiful." project, but as you can see, he’s pretty busy for this year, so unfortunately, I won’t be able to photograph him soon.  But he was so kind even through our facebook communication, and I wanted to share his story.

Todd is 1 of over 9500 post 9/11 injured combat heroes helped by the Semper Fi Fund, a non-profit organization I am raising funds for through my art work and events.  I chose Semper Fi Fund as my charity for this summer because some of the injured veterans I have talked to speak so highly of them.  In my conversations directly with the Semper Fi Fund, I can only echo this sentiment.  I feel they treat each of the injured veterans they help as if he or she is their own child.

At the event on Mon, July 8, I will be showing art work from five of the veterans I’ve photographed to-date, four of which are from Massachusetts.  Each of them has connections to wounded warriors, either because they themselves are wounded or because they continue to help other veterans in so many different ways.  I hope you will join me to say "thank you" and help me in reaching my goal of raising at least $2000 for the Semper Fi Fund through this special event.

If you cannot attend, you can still donate!  For details and to buy tickets, please visit:
