–––––––––

In 1620 the Pilgrims landed in Provincetown, staying for 30 days before moving on to what would be their permanent settlement in Plymouth. To honor this often ignored historical fact a monument was built in Provincetown on High Pole Hill, the highest point in the small town on the very tip of Cape Cod. Completed in 1910 the Pilgrim Monument is an icon on the town that is also famous for being a fishing village, home to a large Portuguese immigrant community, a popular LGBT vacation spot, and the oldest continuous art colony in America and home (for at least a period of time) to a very long list of writers, actors, and artists including Tennessee Williams, Eugene O’Neill, Marsden Hartley, John Waters, Divine, Susan Glaspell, Norman Mailer, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Stanley Kunitz to name just a few. Being positioned way out into the Atlantic, Provincetown is quite familiar with shifting shorelines and erosion. However, some climate change models are quite disturbing and show that if sea levels rise the number of feet that some scientists predict, all that will be above water in Provincetown with be High Pole Hill and the Pilgrim Monument.

–––––––––

A simple receipt [for] a train ticket (one way) which I purchased at an automat in the small town of Jessnitz (ANH) in Germany when going back to Freiburg after I had  helped my mom with the flooded house. The noticeable thing (“sinking”) is that a day or two before the train station was still closed because of the severe flooding of the town (second time since 2002). I do have an online ticket (for 4th of June) as well for the way to the town. It was purchased by my boyfriend, though, on the 3rd of June just when the flooding had started and when it was clear that we would go home to help out my mom who had just informed me that my parents’ house was hit. We could not reach the town of Jessnitz by train on the 4th and only reached the neighbouring city on the 5th.
