I would like to express my appreciation for Cate Gable's columns over the years. Her writing reflects diverse and thoughtful observations based on her travels; love for friends, family, the arts, nature and this coastal community. She writes with honesty, humor and passion.

It takes courage, especially at this time in history, to address elements of environmental, social, political and health crises. To give voice to what is at stake seems crucial. To do so without stooping to name-calling and insult has become an artform.

Thank you, Cate.
