In just a few days we will back out of the garage with a van full of the normal stuff plus one quite Cocker Spaniel name Rothko, an eagerness to share our love of Maine, art, and lobster. Maine has become our second home. We have as many friends there as we have in Maryland. We swap blue crabs for lobster, heat for cool weather, rolling fields for a rolling ocean, and interstates for quiet shady back roads.
I have long since lost the desire to paint the scenery of Maine and now cherish the cool days and nights that seem to open my mind to possibilities of creation rather than imitation. Days start early in Maine with sunrise circa 4 AM and sunset a 10 PM. This schedule allows for many thoughts and actions. Some actions include trips to great eating spots, museums, and idleaic places of rest. I never know where thoughts originate or will lead. My only job is to stay open to new thoughts excite and reveal who I am.
