To all the wonderful friendly people who make me feel so good each day and for all the beautiful pictures of a State I have wanted to see for a long time, I wish you a blessed and prosperous 2008.

Happy New Year to everyone in Maine - in person, or in spirit :-)
Here's something you might like, from Maine poet Robert P. Tristram Coffin.
Days are getting longer now and Spring is on the way!

...almost forgot to add my wishes, hopes & dreams: to be happy, as I hope others will be. Peace.

Going Starring

The maples show red buds beyond the bars,
It's time now to be going after stars.
The sun is still a quarter up from setting,
But there are bound to be stars for the getting.

You go out through the pines into the clear
Through the gentle first heat of the year.
New spears of grass are showing by the bog,
There are lichen goblets on a log
With red wine in them. Moss has spread out rugs
Green with April's cleanings. There are jugs
Filling in the water as you go
Where the bullfrogs sit and suffer so
For love, their voices go down very deep.

There are little brooks for you to leap,
Clean as the snow they were before the sun
Got high enough to make the snowdrifts run,
They will be gone tomorrow and the gems
They stitch around the maple leaves' dead stems.

You find a boxberry by a rotten stump,
You are warm, your heart begins to thump,
The soil below the dead limbs has the dust
Of silver stars sown through it, and you must
Be near the place, for mica is a sign.
Three puff-balls sit there in a line,
And when your foot comes near them too abrupt,
They turn to small volcanoes and erupt.

No insect is awake enough to hum.
This is the place, for here the ledges come
Almost through the turf, and there's no ice
Beneath the turf to make a plant think twice.

It's New Year's Eve Day! woo hoo

I hope for all of you a happy year filled with blessings, love and peace. For those of you who are in the process of moving here I hope that all will fall into place so your dream can be realized quickly.

One of the things I'm looking most forward to in the New Year is meeting some of you!

I sit here typing back to you all while the snow is falling hard. We had seven inches to clear from the driveway this morning and now it is just about 11 a.m. and there is another two inches. It is beautiful. I just took a little walk out there on the road and walking by the woods came up to some wild turkeys who are foraging for food? I was surprised to see them while it is snowing. There are some bunny tracks and a few deer tracks. I love it.
When you get up here, you will be able to view all that we have to offer. Yesterday I was snowmobiling through the woods of Maine and we saw eagles soaring and a huge group or wild turkeys in an area. And the views of tuckerman's ravine through the trees made it all worth while.
See ya when you get up here.
