Shoal Hope

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

Artists, fishermen, rum-runners & submariners living and dying, above and below the sea, setting their traps, caught in their spirals. Life on old Cape Cod before, during & after The Great War. "Moonlight is generous. It makes room for all visions. The moon accepts his ambiguities, projecting possibilities all around him. Looking back over his shoulder, the moon’s reflection glitters on the pool. A surface healed. No sign of their passage, but ragged footprints at the margins pressed into mute sand, incapable of water’s easy metamorphosis." Book Two, Craters of the Moon

Book One, A Moment Suspended

Provincetown on the Eve of World War I

1912


…We had again sight of the land, which made ahead, being as we thought an island, …we called it Shoal Hope. Near this cape we came to anchor in fifteen fathoms, where we took great store of codfish, for which we altered the name, and called it Cape Cod.

Gabriel Archer’s journal of Bartholomew Gosnold’s voyage, 1602.

“Giving up on all optimism and pessimism, one is free to be courageous; one places no trust in tools and instruments; one comes to hope based on human beings.”

Ivan Illich
