Allison, Eva and I went to the Cape today. We’re going to Edaville Railroad tomorrow and felt like heading down to the Cape so we’d have a shorter drive int he morning. We’d also be able to sleep a little longer there. For some reason we always sleep later at the Cape.
We went out to the British Beer Company for dinner (like I didn’t just come back from England.) I love their pizza. The buffalo chicken pizza was fantastic.
The photo is of a glass starfish that hangs in my sister’s room here at the Cape. It makes me remember that poem “The Starfish Flinger”. Tara used that in her High School Graduation speech. Here is the poem if you have never read it before.
“As the old man walked the beach at dawn, he noticed a young man ahead of him picking up starfish and flinging them into the sea. Finally catching up with the youth, he asked him why he was doing this.
The answer was that the stranded starfish would die if left until the morning sun.
“But the beach goes on for miles and there are millions of starfish,” countered the other. “How can your effort make any difference?”
The young man looked at the starfish in his hand and then threw it to safety in the waves.
“It made a difference to that one,” he said.
So, who will you make a difference to today?
