The idea of ritual and repetition was studied recently in my Modern American Poetry class. I spent some time thinking about ritual and Emerald Isle, NC stood out most to me. My family and I spend every week of July 4th at the beach with intermediate family and friends. In this book you will see pictures that depict the things I like to do for fun at the beach and the rituals that occur every year.
RiTUAL. A ceremonial act ~ Rites used in the course of worship ~ The performance of ceremonial acts ~ The prescribed form of conducting the ceremony ~ A method of procedure that is followed without variation ~ performance with gestures, words, and objects, often in a sequestered place.
