    Our annual gift to fellow ocean lovers: a reading of "At the Fishhouses" by Elizabeth Bishop, a poem from 1955 that distills Bishop's seaside meditations and evokes the clarity of meaning contained in personal encounters with the ocean. A perennial favorite of ours, with profound relevance for the New Year.
