We are all accustomed to seeing boldface names associated with the South Fork: Alec, Jimmy, Gwyneth, Sir Paul, et al. Yet, there is something fresh and pulse-quickening about the faces and names of a different century: Pablo, Jean, Cole, Man Ray, Ernest, Scott, and Zelda lighting up the current exhibition “Living Well Is the Best Revenge: A Jazz Age Fable of Sara and Gerald Murphy” at Clinton Academy in East Hampton.

First of all, I have to tell you I am not a food snob. I am not even a gourmet, more like a gourmand. I enjoy a chile con queso made with Velveeta “cheese” as much as fresh sea urchin gonads. Yes, uni are gonads, not roe. That being said, we approached Grey Lady East in Montauk with open minds and hearty appetites.

Jenel Russell came, he posted up, and he almost conquered, but a cramp, in four places, he said, rendered him hors de combat in the final of Saturday’s 2016 Hoops Classic at the Sportime Arena in Amagansett, and thus Grand Kenyon (the yellow team) lost 10-4 to the blue team, When We Were Young.

Some human domiciles are 1,000 years old or more. Several on Long Island date back to the late 1600s. Most houses, however, have lost their sense of permanence. Fifty years ago, one would never raze a house to build another one unless it was severely storm damaged or ravaged by fire. Nowadays, houses built in the last quarter of the 20th century are falling to new, larger ones right and left. Houses have lost their sense of permanence just as we who live in them have lost our sense of immortality.
