Magazines and internet articles use terms like,”get your body back.” What they don’t seem to understand is that your body didn’t go anywhere. You didn’t have a child and then suddenly start going about your day as a floating head. In fact you should feel more connected to your body than ever.

The Schooners return to Gloucester on September 1, 2, and 3, to celebrate the thirty-third Gloucester Schooner Festival. Maritime Gloucester will welcome twenty-three schooners to its recently rebuilt Harriet Webster Pier.

Warmest regards
