The 19th Annual
Man seeks permanence in an impermanent world through ritual and tradition. Birthdays, Christmas, the Summer Solstice, these are the yardsticks against which the passing years are measured. And for our little group who have called ourselves “The Whales” ever since we rented that dilapidated beach house in Cape May Point, New Jersey soon after college, the one with the whale sculptures, whale weather vanes, whale pictures and whale statuary everywhere, Memorial Day weekend has become one of those traditions.
