We city dwellers have forgotten what it is to breathe fresh air . . . Taking in lungfuls of clean air on Martha's Vineyard gives one pause . . . should anyone really be living two blocks from Exit 17 on the Massachusetts Turnpike, less than 8 miles outside of Boston? But then, if we all moved to Martha's Vineyard, the game would be the same. Beautiful views, but still no clean air for those lungs of ours. And even the views would, by definition, be clogged.
Now why in the world would Marash Girl be thinking such dark thoughts when Martha's Vineyard is still a daily reality? Perhaps because today the sun is hiding in a very clouded sky.
