CLAMBAKE // elspeth


Gather friends. Dig a hole on the beach. Load rocks. Load wood. Light it on fire.


Wait; eat oysters; drink beer. Three or four hours later, get a wheelbarrow and bring down the lobsters and clams. Remove the bags, the bands.


Dive for seaweed. Collect it in fish totes. Wet the tarp.


Layer: Hot rocks. Seaweed. Lobsters, clams, potatoes, sausage, onions. More seaweed. Tarp.


Wait; eat oysters; drink beer.


Then in a fury: fling off the tarp. Fill the wheelbarrow with food! Crack the lobsters! Melt the butter! Set the table, grab the napkins, get the plates and forks.

Eat with friends.

As a biography is an account of another person's life, in a way it is easier to write, because you being the outsider can write impartially without having the emotional attachment. See more writing a short bio
