KCT Thought of the Week, January 10, 2014

"Among the old wharves, seines and lobster pots, with the smell of sedge and salt, sit the philosophers.  'What do you do winters?' asked an inquisitive summer girl of them.  'It must be very lonesome so far away from everybody.' 'Lonesome Miss?' and he slowly lighted his pipe.  'Oh, no. I find plenty to do.  I go over to the store and some days I sit and smoke, and some days I only sit."  The Wave, midsummer edition, 1905 as told in "Kennebunkport, The Evolution of an American Town" by Joyce Butler
