The Viable Paradise workshop is over for another year. We had writing and music and pancakes and jellyfish and a sky full of stars. (Also, if you were me, lobster tacos at the Lookout restaurant, and I just have to say, that was one of the best things I’ve ever tasted done to a lobster.)
The photo, by the way, is of the Gay Head Lighthouse on the Cliffs of Aquinnah — one of the five lighthouses on the island. (The others are East Chop, West Chop, Edgartown, and Cape Pogue.) It’s called “Gay Head” because the headland there is a multi-hued clay cliff. Obligatory literature reference: The harpooneer Tashtego, in Moby-Dick, was a Native American from Gay Head.
If you wanted to apply to VP this year and couldn’t make it, next year’s applications open on 1 January 2015.
