I grew up on a dairy farm with 5 siblings in Chester County, PA. From the time I was a teenager, my panacea was to spend a week on Islesford in Maine where I painted pictures, made stained glass windows out of found beach glass, played Mozart on the piano and read and discussed poetry with my writer/artist friends. Raised as an activist Quaker, I worked with voter registration in Mississippi, did community organization and helped teenagers get their GEDs in eastern Kentucky, taught art in a community college in Harlan County, Kentucky and established one of the first Parent Child Centers that addressed edu- cation from birth to three. Because I felt strongly about being with my children from birth to three, I started a small retail business that has since morphed into two retail shops in northern Colorado where we specialize in comfort footwear and clothing. My daughter Maia manages one of our shops where she brings my 5-year-old grand-daughter Artemis to help in the same way her mother helped me many years ago.
Back to Maine. Ever since I was a teenager, I wanted a place in Maine. After searching for over a year, I discovered the slice of heaven that is Heroncrest. It is private and sunny and the views out to the islands are postcard perfect. The neighbors are salt of the earth and I would love to share the magic that I found so many years ago with any who wish to create memories of their own.
