Here's The Story...

Ironically, Sea Level Rise is all about The Shoreline.

The lay of the land will determine how Sea Level affects us in The Future.

A 20' rise in the middle of The Ocean means nothing.

2' at The Shoreline presents a serious challenge.  

My interests have always been focused along The Shoreline.

The Shoreline is in trouble.

I gotta try to help.

It was meant to be.

I've spent most of my life pursuing the perfect venture.

There have been a lot of fascinating occupations along the way.

I've reached the pinnacle in a number of my endeavors, but none of them held my interest and enthusiasm enough to become the be all and end all.

None of them ever quite had it.

Then, suddenly, from out of the clear blue sky, it appeared.

As in, Eureka, this is it!

Naturally!

It was right in front of my eyes the whole time.



Sea Level Rise threatens Earth's Shoreline.


I gotta do something about this before the damage is done.


Earth's Shoreline is my baby.


For as long as I can recall, as far back as 1950, I have loved The Beach.


Lynn, Mass, USA, my home town, has a beautiful beach.






This view has inspired me since day one.

Here's a piece from several years ago.

Down the Beach...Noth Shoa...6.5.02... 

It really is fun, just enjoyin' the day "Down the Beach". 

That's where you'll find me, at every opportunity. 
  
I love this place. 
  
The 'ever shifting sand' nature of the beach is an elixir. 

The shoreline and the sand change constantly. 
  
One can walk the beach daily, and never repeat the same scenery. 

In fact, if one walks the full length of the beach, the scenery will have changed for the return trip. 

Look up at the sky. 

Changes will be happening before your very eyes. 

Look down at the oceans edge. 

The tide will bring all manner of seaborne objects to your feet. 

Not everything that floats in is pretty, but that's life! 

These changes refresh the spirit. 

Life, itself, is taking place all around. 

Here, "Down the Beach", life takes place with a greater sense of joy. 

Each breath renews and replenishes. 

The oxygen enriched air is a natural elixir. 

A sense of well being exists. 

How could anyone not love this shore? 

Standing at the water's edge, squinting into the sun, envisioning that beyond the horizon, sent me far and wide. 

All the way out, all the way in, and back around again.

This is coming to you from my garage/studio in Lynn.

The idea is pretty simple.

I'm trying to get people to care about and pay attention to Sea Level Rise because of the long term negative effect on Earth's Shoreline.

My connection to Earth's Shoreline has remained strong throughout my life.

One of my long time occupations has been working as a wooden boat carpenter along Boston's North Shore.



Spending day after glorious day in the great outdoors, alongside Earth's Ocean, doing the work I love.

Believe me, ya definitely don't do it for the money.


Like I said, the pinnacle, livin' the dream for decades.

But now, the wolf is at the door.

It's time to shift gears and throw everything into dealing with Sea Level Rise.

Immediately!

We need to quickly elevate our understanding of Sea Level and it's potential ramifications, before we panic and screw things up forever.


That lifetime of searching I mentioned earlier really did come full circle.


I'm right back where I started from, with a purpose.


The timing could not be more perfect.


Shoreline Earth will generate more $$$ for Lynn than all the other waterfront projects and proposals put together, in 5 years, or less.


We're light years ahead of the crowd on this one, Folks.


Lynn, Mass, USA.

You will be stunned once you realize what can happen here.

Get ready...!

NOTE...

This is not a 'blog' as such.

You won't find news links, food pics, or stories about my cat.

The 'Blogger' format is free.

After some tinkering, I've customized the page into a continuous string of text and images intended to develop our awareness and understanding of Sea Level Rise and its effect on Shoreline Earth.

Images and green text link.

The links will provide "A Deeper Look At Sea Level Rise."

And there's even a little ditty about Earth's Climate.

Sea Level Rise is a function of Climate Change.





Enjoy!
