  1. “This poem is

    our village

    carved like scrimshaw

    on an ivory dawn”

    -love that, great attention to imagery!

      • Oh, I’m so glad you understand! People from the Deep South always try to fight me on it, but I just tell them they haven’t met the heart of the city yet.

        But as much as I love Richmond, I wish that I could also be having the kind of traveling experience you all are!

  2. This is amazing photography. If you could please post this on the William H. Seward Yacht Club facebook and share your experiences with us. You need to do this! Most sailors imagine warm places to dream about but this certainly takes my breath away.
