PBS Planet Forward Video

From Samantha:
Hey everyone,

So as some of you know, and for those that don't, I took part in course of the winter intersession called Planet Forward, which was a video production class that produced short films about current environmental issues. The videos are then uploaded onto the Planet Forward website, which is run by PBS, and come summertime the highest rated videos on the site will be chosen for the one-hour live broadcast of Planet Forward on PBS.

So with that said, I produced a few videos, one of which I felt confident enough to put on the site, and it is finally up! click on the link to check it out! Sign up to become a member and rate it, too, because the more ratings it has, the better chance it will have to make it onto the one-hour nationwide broadcast!!

To my family, send this to anyone and everyone you know!!

Thanks everyone!

The Road Less Traveled

CHOICES"When making choices,
I use my marathon philosophy
to help me stay
Motivated and Focused on the Big Picture.

I can always find a thousand excuses not to do my training run,
I only need ONE reason to do my daily run ."

Roots & Wings

Roots & Wings
If I could give you many things,
I'd give you gold and silver rings
Of knowledge that I've gained with years
The gift of smiling through the tears
Confidence, courage, determination,
Laughter and spirit and love of creation,
Wrapped up in a box with a bow, I'd give
To you these gifts to keep for as long as you live.

"If I could give you just two things,
One would be Roots, the other, Wings."
Roots, not to tie you to the ground,
But to guide you to where your fulfillment is found
The nourishing start, the firm foundation,
The source of your inner determination.
Wings to soar over obstacles, wings to fly free,
Wings to glide to the heights of the best you can be.
And when obstacles loom, from your Roots grows a hand
Providing a strong, sturdy, safe place to land.
I'd choose these two things for the gifts that are best,
For with Roots and with Wings, you'll find all the rest!

Welcome... The Nauset Outer Beach Blog

Welcome to the Nauset Outer Beach Blog. Although my family wasn't lucky enough to 'grow up' on the Outer Beach, we have found our home and know how lucky we are to live so close to 'Paradise'!

Do you have stories about the history, the camps, the storms, the sunny summer days, surfing, fishing, the plovers??, or anything else that evokes memories from the outer? If so, we would love to hear from you, please feel free to share and post a comment!

Enjoy the Journey,
