“I dwell in possibility…” ― Emily Dickinson

Enjoy Carnival & The Parade Today--
--'Awash in the golden afternoon light, rainbow flags overhead flapping in the friendly August breeze, there is both stillness and excitement in the air. Eager eyes anticipate the floats, costumes and music about to snake through P'Town while the island-like town prepares for the parade that concludes Carnival Week, lawn chairs placed along the curb early to assure a perfect spot...'--August Afternoon #Carnival #Provincetown #CapeCod with the Perfect Summer Read: During Carnival, a seaside affair of the heart and a moment that changed everything is unexpectedly revisited...'August Afternoon'

--'The crowd stretching from before the Provincetown Public Library, the former Methodist Church and Provincetown Heritage Museum, all the way to the post office and beyond to the turn in the road of Commercial Street signaled by John's house--that head in the window, has been left behind. Leaving the noise and pre-celebration behind I feel closer to the reason I have come back to this town at the tip of Cape Cod...'--August Afternoon #Carnival #Provincetown #CapeCod

--'Silence engulfs me because all of Provincetown is nearly empty it seems. This place devoid of skyscrapers, traffic lights and all the other trappings of the real world is empty the way Christmas Eve is after a certain time of evening given into night. P'Town feels like that now, except for the center of town where everyone is gathered on Commercial Street in anticipation of the parade. Leaving that behind, on a day filled with revelers and celebration, I make my way toward Kay Landon's house and the reason I have returned to P'Town. Kay no longer has the property she once did in Truro. Elderly and ill lately, she has holed up here in Provincetown at the edge of town in the home I remember from that summer. The house is as large and imposing as I recall, perched on the edge of town and the sea with the shingles covered by white planking these days...'--August Afternoon #Carnival #Provincetown #CapeCod

--'Leaving the noise of anticipation for the parade behind, Carnival Week concluding here in Provincetown, I nearly shake a bit as I stand on the large wraparound porch of Kay's house--the porch hosting a lone white rocking chair looking out toward the water. Shake I do finally as the door is opened. 'Well, look who darkens my door...' Kay says as I am ushered in.
Smiling a bit, I lean down to her in her wheelchair. Turning her long face, resembling a wrinkled piece of paper recovered somehow from a storm called a full life, Kay Landon allows me to peck her cheek...'--August Afternoon #Carnival #Provincetown #CapeCod
