Why?

I’ve been a year-round working resident of Martha’s Vineyard since 1985. Nearly all of what’s written about Martha’s Vineyard is written by people who don’t live here year-round. These people are often well connected in the media world, so their views circulate widely and the rest of the world thinks their views are the whole truth about Martha’s Vineyard. Not so.

From the Seasonally Occupied Territories isn’t the whole truth either. It’s one voice in a chorus, or maybe a cacophony. It’s an observant, sometimes fierce, and idiosyncratic voice that wants to hear more year-rounders thinking, talking, and writing about what happens here, and why. The more voices contribute, the better our collective thinking will be. Here’s mine.

    • Thank you so much. Sometimes I wonder why people in other places read my blog, but then again — I love reading the insights and experiences of people in places I’ve never been and will probably never go. You already know I’m a fan of The Immortal Jukebox. My life has always had a good soundtrack, but thanks to you it keeps expanding and getting deeper.
