Is our art influenced by our environment; our politics; the company we keep, and/or by our generic connections? And is what we create truly unique? Or was Picasso right when he said: “Every painting already has a mother and a father.”?
From the MCC:

Lots of good stuff is happening in Rockport this weekend as Rockporters and visitors celebrate the ol’ fishing shack known as Motif No.1 at the annual Motif No.1 Day Fest.
Arts activities, roving poetry, dance, live music, theater, local food, aerialists, acrobats, and much more are on the schedule. It all kicks off with the Motif No.1 Day 5K & Fun Run at 9am, with proceeds going to benefit the Rockport Public Schools’ WELL initiative. We’ll have tents to keep you dry in case of rain, lots of great food, balloons, face-painting, print-making with Rusty and Ingrid, a Pet Parade to benefit Cape Ann Animal Aid – the list goes on…
The Schedule of Events:
So who organizes the Motif No.1 Day Fest? I can hear you asking. Is it the Chamber of Commerce? The Town of Rockport? Magic fairies? No, the organizers of Motif 1 Day volunteer for a local nonprofit called Rockport Exchange. Rockport Exchange works with commercial, cultural, and civic groups to help create a strong sense of community through events and initiatives that promote local food, culture, and industry. Rockport Exchange works hard to be self-funded, but could use your support in sustaining the free community programming the organization provides.
One fun way you can help fund Motif No. 1 Day is by entering the “Win Free Coffee for a Year” raffle at Brothers’ Brew. A $20 ticket gives you a chance for a free cup of coffee every day at Rockport’s favorite doughnut (and more) shop. And the staff at BB throws in specialty coffee as part of the deal for the winner, which makes this prize practically priceless. Last year Rockport’s Harbormaster, Rosemary Lesch, won. And since Rosemary holds court in the corner table nearly every day at Brothers’ Brew, she got her money’s worth with that winning raffle ticket over this past year. Think she can win again? Rosemary is hopeful and has already bought her raffle ticket. You have a few days left to stop by Brothers’ Brew and buy your ticket! Thanks for your support and we’ll see you at the Fest!

Some seals sunning themselves on a recent spring day on Brace Cove. I think these are the first pictures I’ve gotten of these guys on a bright sunny day. We were happy to see such a great post storm restoration down there!
Treetop Yoga (3A Pond Rd, Gloucester) welcomes our local teen girls this Sunday for a specialty workshop. Teenage yoga is an excellent way to help your child deal with the overwhelming emotional and physical changes that she goes through during adolescence. This workshop will introduce girls to basic yoga poses and connect the poses through a fun flow. We will also find support from each other with partner poses and games. Finally, there will be a short conversation period to learn how to use either breathing techniques or the yoga practice to help calm the mind when girls face stressful moments in the classroom, on the playing field, or during everyday social interactions. Pre-register HERE.

As you probably heard, there was a major fire at a house in West
Gloucester earlier today resulting in a total loss of the home and all
possessions. It was the home of my next door neighbors Astrid af
Klinteberg and Fred Day. Both of them made it out safely along with
their dog Amelia and eventually they found one of their cats.
A GoFundMe page has been setup at
to help them get back on their feet.
If at all possible, publishing a link on the GoodMorningGloucester page
would be appreciated.
