LONGLEAF STORIES

full circle in the hundred acre wood

Here’s the money shot from Bass Harbor:

It’s beautiful, but I am discombobulated. We have rented a home full of books — books waiting for me like a lost love. I just finished reading Terry Tempest Williams’ Refuge. And now, I am reading books about the significance of Place, Carl Gustav Jung, Proust and walking the roads with Buck, smelling the herbal smell of Loupaus Road and the Back Beach. The light, the early light, makes it impossible to sleep late (as if I ever could).

Our experience with the long lost relatives was Homeric. I have been reading and studying the art and concept of memoir; and now I have experienced the raw pouring out of the heart from which memoir is potted via the searing kiln of pain.

It takes awhile to process all of this.

    It is beautiful up there, isn’t it? Is this your first time on the Maine coast? This all looks very familiar to me!

  2. Hi Leslee — Yes, very beautiful — colors of water and sky remarkable; wild flowers everywhere and the tides hypnotic. Not our first time — probably the 7th in this very same little village. (Bernard, next to Bass Harbor on MDI). The building in that photo now houses a small branch of Southwest Harbor’s well-known bookstore, “Port In A Storm.” The branch is called “Portside.” Last year when we were here I bought “Last Child In The Woods” there (highly recommended). Thanks for stopping by. . .

    okay… I am getting swept in, all of your writing blurring the laundry, the teen school’s out chatter, and the banking pile, letting me feel through your eyes and words
    thank you again
