KCT Thought of the Week: “The world of man and the wonders of nature are not isolated. Much like a scene woven into a beautiful tapestry, all of our lives are interconnected and interdependent. And just as pulling a thread from the tapestry destroys its perfect harmony, so too does ignoring our ties to the environment of which we are a part.”  ~ Tom Bradbury

“Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night, and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows’ Eve.  Everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet.  Smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades.” ~ Ray Bradbury in “The Halloween Tree”

KCT Thought of the Week, August 7, 2015

“Beside the narrow entrance to the larger harbor stands the little lighthouse, chalk-white against the ocean, or golden, when flaming sunsets touch sea and sky and magic colors holding one speechless with a vision of beauty. And then the moonlight shimmers through the narrow strait, its path unbroken from the shore at one’s feet till it fades into the infinity of night and sea—on some nights silvery and cool, with the wooded islands etched in black; and sometimes golden, as though some giant hand were sprinkling star dust over all.” ~ Melville Freeman in the “History of Cape Porpoise, Maine”

“We venture to think our little harbor rather a pretty one, and we’re human enough to feel flattered when we hear visitors exclaiming over the quaint charm of our little Yankee fishing village. Altogether, we rather think we possess about as fetching a corner of Mother Earth as you’ll find on this side of that ocean yonder. .” ~ Booth Tarkington in “Mirthful Haven” 1930
