• Beach Walk

    I moved to the coast of Maine so I could experience LIFE every day. I want to be close to nature in the remarkable and unusual ways she expresses herself in this part of the world. Oh wow! I just looked out the window from my studio and I’m seeing a TON of whirlpools. The swirls churn up bubbles that float on the surface and accentuate the rims of the agitated water. This swirling water is a metaphor for something. I just have no idea what...yet. But I’ll figure it out. And then I’ll write abo…

  • View Through My Windows

    house from whale watching boat front of house from ww boat The cottage I’ve moved to in Maine has HUGE windows facing the sea that I absolutely love. The combination of being on the sea, and having so many windows makes watching nature and the changes in the weather truly spectacular!

This is what I'm meant to do with my life…

  • My Marvelous Minutes in MAINE!

    I am sitting in my studio watching the second... well the only word for it is SHIP go by on Passamaquoddy bay. Between the ships I saw a lobster boat pulling in its cages while countless seagulls ambushed it. They were only countless because they kept moving, encircling the boat hoping for scraps of bait to fill their gullets with. I can hear the water lapping much louder now due to the wake of the latest ship that has just passed my windows in this channel. I am here. I made it!! I have been…

  • Maine Trip Busted By Covid-19 Pan(dem)ic!

    (Well everything I typed here disappeared which sucks. I'll try to type what I remembered at least the good stuff). :) (Over a week ago at this point) Bryan and I set off in our Hundai for a road trip to Maine to explore options for our new venture, Natural Narratives. Our house here is practically sold, so we called a hotel in Maine to make sure the trip would be considered essential travel, we left behind a cat, 3 dogs and 4 ducks in the capable hands of Bryan's son. With high hopes of high t…
