Humans of Nantucket

Rachel Fabiszak

"When I was a kid, as one of ten children, I was in the younger end of our family. It was me and my younger brother and the next older brother. We were the last few kids in the house. We were always building forts. Not just like kids build a fort in their yard or their house. We would go into our woods, we lived on 260 acre farm on the Chesapeake Bay, and we would climb way up high in trees and build up where no one was looking and just have these unique multi-story forts. We would also take logs that were fallen trees laying in the woods and made them into paths. And we built this elaborate path system through the woods. They were about 5ft wide and just had mulched leaves as the carpet. They would become bike trails and we would go biking really fast through these narrow twisting paths in the woods. You had to know your way around or you would crash into the trees."

Humans of Nantucket, modeled after the famous Humans of New York, intends to introduce us to members of the island community we might not already know, and to share in their lives, dreams and hopes.
