November. Buttoning up the last of the summer season and hunkering down for winter. Buddy caught some of the lobstermen heading out in November one cold morning a few years ago. He wrote: “Had a little ‘sea smoke’ in the harbor the other morning. Getting a little wintry feeling. Pleasure boats have pretty much disappeared, and at the rate some traps are coming ashore... the work boats won’t be far behind.”
Nice article in BC Magazine. You may not speak for your employer, but they are clearly proud to have you:)
Just to be clear, one thing Gretchen and I are thankful for this year, as in the past, is the informed, gracious, sometimes exciting essays of Heather Cox Richardson. Hooray! Ed Hillard, Palo Alto, CA
When I count up the people I am grateful for this Thanksgiving, you are way, way up on the list. You have educated, inspired, and strengthened me through your Letters.
Sleep well! Thank you for sharing Buddy’s photo and thank you for sharing it. As always, thank you for all you letters and observations. Wishing you ease of finishing your manuscript. Happy early Thanksgiving!
Dear Heather, every day I want to write and thank you for your precise, on the dime comments and perspectives. You keep us updated to the latest information cradled in history that gives us a nuanced perspective.
I am also glad that you realize when you need to take the night off but leave us with a magnificent picture to contemplate in a part of the world that seems more serene than much of our settled landscapes.
I was so happy to hear of your recent wedding and know that he must be a very special person to cherish and share your life together.
In admiration and appreciation

Thank you over and over for who you are & what you do. Happy Thanksgiving❣️
Just thank you for all your eye openings and groundings.
Thank you both, and sweet dreams!
Many thanks to Buddy for the magical photo and to you for your excellent and informative newsletter to which I always look forward.
As a resident of the southern Maine coast, I never tire of its endless beauty. How fortunate we are !
Take care and a peaceful and enjoyable Thanksgiving to you both !
J M W Turner eat your heart out!
That looks so ethereal; a very cool photo!
Your observations which come to me each night on the west coast about 10 pm help me drift off to sleep secure in the knowledge that superb people like you are anchoring basic people like me.
Happy Thanksgiving from a loyal and grateful reader.
Your husband’s photography is spectacular!
Buddy, the light in your photo is beautiful; the orange glow as the sun rises casts a magical spell. Reality in America is flashing distress signals.
That you are almost finished with your manuscript, HRC, as the season turns means that Americans will be blessed by a book imbued with a deep sense of the country's condition. That is our condition, the people's condition, whether we know it or not. Many of us do feel the weight of it.
Thank you, HCR, for your clear vision and concern.
