A month ago, upon leaving the hospital tending to Raquel, Tim, our youngest says: “You know dad, you and mom have had a good and long run of it. Isn’t time to move over?” OK, and that applies even more to Monhegan Commons. It is time to turn it over to the next generation…. no hurry, as happens naturally.

Much of the poetry also speaks to my heart.
    Many, many thanks to Peter!!!! And, let me know of ways I might be able to help keep this site going forward.

    Peter’s quote, about laying aside one’s present life to make room for a new one, while containing wisdom, allows for each to take the appropriate time and course in our own lives to do that I hope, and I hope you Peter take a long time to little by little step back……
    and smiling to myself, I recognize for myself, it is easier said than done. You dear Peter while stepping back into the shadows little by little regarding the Commons, will always be an icon to most of us here and will never be in the shadows of our minds regarding the Monhegan Commons… are Peter, at the very least, the rock upon which the Commons was built….it’s just the way it is. and we Thank You….Thank You.
