Sargent Editor Publisher Sand Wind and Stars L ets set the perfect mood for the summer ahead by understand- ing sand. You may wonder if sand re- ally needs an update. But if dazzling windswept beaches are important to you if you dare to let your friends know that in your private moments while dipping your imagination into a great book while summoning the image of your footprints across countless summers while re-watch- ing any Nicholas Sparks movie you may be an arenophile read on. The quick answer to what is sand is sil- icon dioxide in the form of quartz accord- ing to Live Science. Wind and violent storms across eons grind quartz crystals and mica into sparkling grains of sand. Its finer and surely more romantic than gravel. Imagine a Studio 54 of geology. A piece of grit shows up the bouncer looks at his list. Are you .0625 mm or 116 mm to 2 mm Well I was this morning. Thats good. Because if you were smaller youd be silt. If you were larger youd be grav- el. Are you familiar at all with the Krumbein phi scale Beyond this do you have the requi- site sparkle Which is not to say that you cant be sand if youre a tiny pink fragment of coral lime- stone or shell. You might be a garnet or a gem. Quartz does not make a beach alone. I had no idea there was such a thing as star sand see photo. Amusing Planet takes us closer to re- veal that these stars are really the exoskeletons of tiny one-celled organ- isms barely a millimeter across called Baculogypsina sphaerulata that live among the sea grass. Their home base is a celebrated star-sand beach located on the northern tip of the remote Iriomote Island in Okinawa Pre- fecture in Japan. Writing for The Economist Rebecca Willis feels sand doesnt just stick to our toes it has a way of getting inside our heads. People who love sand are called arenophiles from the Lat- in harena for sand which was spread over the floor of the Colosseum in Rome to soak up the blood of combat and which also gives us the word arena. Not quite so romantic. What that leaves arena-lovers to call themselves I dont know. Sand has properties which even the non- arenophile may be able to appreciate. It is self-sorting grains of the same size group together as the different ingredients in a box of muesli do that is why when the grains are different co- lours you can find exquisite painterly patterns left by the tide on a beach. When sand is poured into a pile the slant of the slope made by the edge of the pile is called the angle of repose. Lovely. Let this summer be graceful and unhurried. Maines timeless beaches can afford to take the long view. What kind of school doesnt teach to the test At Waynflete our teachers arent constrained by an inflexible curriculum. They have the freedom to fine-tune every class and lab to whatever ignites learning. Its more challenging. But with the second-highest SAT scores in Maine for the second year running we think it works.

Anita Stewart Portland one Mans treasure Today an interesting fax came across my deskyour story on the house at 15 North Street in Saco See House of the Month The Tory Lover December 2015. This home was owned by my grandparents Rog- er P. and Ruth S. Moore from the mid-1930s into the mid-to-late 1970s. Roger Moore was the President of DT Moore and Sons in Saco. My father Robert S. Moore grew up in this house before leaving for Phillips Ex- eter 1942 and then the U.S. Naval Acade- my 1945 which is perhaps where the boat person reference arose. The reference to the shabby interior during my grandparents ownership could not be further from the truth. In fact the house was immaculate and was decorated with rare and local antiques that dated all the way back to Revolutionary War times.

My mother still has a in- credible oil painting of this house which was completed in the 1930s or 40s. My late father spent his adolescent years living in the uber-cool attic space before leaving for Exeter. I recall as a boy being awed by this home its history and the al- most museum like interior spaces. I always wanted to live in that attic but my fathers careerasacarrier-basednavalaviatormeant that we never lived full time in Maine. My mother still owns a home in Fortunes Rocks that has been in the family since the late 1800s. In any event I am not in the least bit upset about the story that was told to you by the current owners as I know time tends to erode memories but I thought you might like to know some of the actual history.

On May 1 1788 after a mass spinning bee attended by over 100 ladies in finest attire an agreeable variety of excellent pieces in psalmody was performed at Par- son Deanes house. Gentlemen were about taking in the musical performance and more. There certainly should have been dancing. The floor vibrated. Looks were ex- changed and blushes.There was a rumor of tapping toes. But Dancing was not allowed as we may learn from the indictment on record in 1766 against Nathaniel Deer- ing and his wife John Walte and his wife and others of the first families for dancing in a private apartment of Freemans tavern. The Kings attorney David Wyer argued the case. They were acquitted on the grounds that it was a very private hop and not a public dance or ball according to A History of New Eng- land 1881.

It was around 1637 when what would becomeand still isthe York Harbor Inns post-and-beam Cabin Room with fireplace was dismantled and transported by barge to York Harbor from the Isles of Shoals where it had been used as a sail loft. The stables were converted into a lounge in the 1870s which endures today as the Ships Cellar Lounge. W hat is it about the Chebeague Island Inn Located on an island and accessible only by boat the Inn creates a feeling of escape even for visitors coming from nearby towns says Caitlin Prentice. The Inn sits on the highest point of the island facing west so it offers the sunset overlooking Casco Bay. The island of many springs is appealing for the privacy it offers. Recent guests who have sought its seclusion include Star Wars director J.J. Abrams actress Rooney Mara Carol Girl with the Dragon Tattoo NFL Commission- er Roger Goodell New York chef Dan Barber and actor Michael Richards Seinfield. Beyond these the inn has Charlies ghost. Charlie was a bit of a drinker and he frequented the bar at the inn says Prentice. This was about 100 years ago. One night his wife got fed up with him and kicked him out. He went to the inn drowned his sorrows and stum- bled upstairs to a room. Before doing so he carelessly tossed a lit cigarette under the porch. The inn caught fire and burned to the ground. In his drunk- en stupor Charlie never woke up. He died in his room. Hes said to haunt the inn which was rebuilt in 1924. the Ships Cellar Lounge.

A tradition at the hotel since Victo- rian times the popular Claremont Croquet Classic has been held in August since 1977. The hotel was built in 1884 by Capt. Jes- se Pease who found the view of Somes Sound and Acadia National Park beyond to be the most beautiful hed ever seen. Its hard to argue. Best-selling novelist and Southwest Harbor resident Christina Bak- er Kline declares her favorite summer treat to be blueberry martinis at the Boathouse Bar at the Claremont.

H ORACE MORSE resident en- lightened landlord and hands- on restorer of three of Park Rows 14 townhouse units during the late 1960s through the early 1980s always dreamed of writing an operetta about this brick and brownstone structure planned in 1835 built 1837 and its colorful residents. Few would have been better suited to such a task that the gregarious contagiously optimis- tic antiquarian entrepreneur and conver- sationalist. In those heroic early days of ar- chitectural preservation concerned citizens rallied around Greater Portland Landmarks GPL and its first director Pamela Plumb had begun to restore the Row. Located in what was then considered a blighted area it was difficult to arrange home loans for units but in 1970 they were able to place Maines largest and finest row-house on the National Register of Historic Places. Since World War II when the bottom fell out of the local economy the prevailing dream of Portlands civic leaders centered on urban renewal slum clearance which brought in big federal dollars and construc- tion jobs and made run-down houses dis- appear. At the dawn of the 1970s dreams of urban renewal and architectural pres- ervation collided on the virtual doorstep of Park Row. Greater Portland Landmarks was organized in response to earlier losses such as Union Station St. Stephens Church Munjoy South and the ongoing destruction and depopulation of the Spring and Pleasant streets neighborhoods. GPL looked to pro- tect buildings for creative reuse and destina- tion tourism. From High Street to the Old Port to Franklin Street a two-lane arterial was created splitting the city. Activist Vin- cent OMalley noted Money talks and eve- rybody walks. The majority of those forced from their homes on Spring and Pleasant went into worse housing and higher rent. A rather nasty war of words grew in the local press.

City Beat 72 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine LibraryofCongressgerdaPeteriCh End. In that spring City Manager John E. Menario told local businessmen that GPL was rushing in to have condemned struc- tures marked historic not so much for his- toric interestbut to block renewal. GPLspresidentCharltonS.Smithemphat- ically denied any plans to block progress. We simply wish to have a voice in the redevelop- ment process at a time when there is still a chancetoexplorealternativestothedemolish- ment of historically valuable buildings. Here was a firm statement of creative reuse pre- serving an irreplaceable destination spot rath- erthangivewaytoagroupofblandnewbuild- ingstodrivearoundorthrough.Afteryearsof wrangling this would subsequently lead to more cooperation of citizens business histor- ic preservation and government. Today a dreary intersection between the Little Tap House restaurant and a green- space parking lot marks the end of the cross- peninsula arterial dream and the start of architectural preservation and livability in the West End the future washing up on the doorstep of Park Row. But dreams are curious things. Some- times they end up deferred. In the mid-1830s art critic John Neal brought the notion of townhouses built in rows to Portland. Neal built a duplex on State Street intending to include more units but was preempted by the Ann Street Com- pany Park Street Proprietary who snagged his potential investors. The investors paid 15000 for Billy Grays Rope Walk between Congress and Gray streets and lofted an elegant row of townhouses on newly named Park Street. However the national panic of 1837 bank- rupted the investors and the units were sold at auction. Though interiors and trim were left to individual owners and all were sold by 1838 some were used for storage of hay and other material.

As fashion moved west toward Bramhall and the Promenade citizens of solid if modest means took up lodging in the row but the whole idea of such connect- ed brick homes vanished until our time. Here again is a curious deferral of dreams. As Patricia Anderson observes in the book Portland 1972 It is safe to say that todays renascence of this handsome row is much closer to the vision of the Park Street Pro- prietors in 1835 than actuality in 1838. Today overarching trees line the thorough- fare which was virtually without shade in the 1970s. A nd what of the people in Horaces operetta Certainly they would in- clude Dr. Alfred Brinkler music teacher and organist at St. Lukes who was the second owner of his unit from 1906 to the 1970s. It was he who installed a massive Hope James pipe organ in the townhouse he sold to Peter and Pam Plumb. The latter was Mayor and saw the city adopt its first historic preservation ordinance. Or renter Bill Frost who was playing his guitar when Horace knocked on the door saying Ive come to complain about the music. Ill play softer said the musician. No louder said the landlord. Either you keep the door open or come down. We can hard- ly hear you. In the 1990s John Preston author of Winters Light chosen as one of 100 books that best revealed the history of the State took up residence. The New York Times Book Review noted The first hero in the fine col- lection of essays is Portland a small city where John Preston finally found a commu- nity quirky enough to encompass himself. Let the Row keep drawing the originals and may its song be sung. n William David Barry is the author of Maine The Wilder Half of New England.He is a reference historian at the Maine Historical Society. 1962 Full Service Marinas offering New and Pre-Enjoyed Boats Parts Service Slips Rentals Yarmouth ME 207 846-9050 YarmouthBoatYard.com Naples ME 207 693-6264 MooseLandingMarina.com A pr i l 2 0 1 6 7 5 Isnt that MeaghanMauriceinsetfroMtopproMophotoLibraryofcongress for the ages two Fort Gorges was modeled on Fort Sumter. What a wild duet. By ColIn W. sargent o n the Endangered List the crown jewel of Portland Harbor Fort Gorges modeled after Fort Sumter in Charleston South Carolina according to Greater Portland Landmarks. What a difference a little geography makes. Consider the resumes of the two look-a-like forts. The Civil War actually started at Fort Sumter. In Charleston Harbor the Union was coming apart at the seams. On December 20 1860 Union army major Robert Anderson had no choice but to relocate his command of 85 soldiers from Fort Moultrie on Sullivans Island to Fort Sumter in the center of the harbor to guarantee their safety. The view was extraordinary but they were stuck out there for months with dwindling supplies. According to Civilwar.org Just after the inauguration of President Abraham Lincoln on March 4 1861 Anderson reported that he had only a six-week supply of food left in the fort and Confederate patience for a foreign force in its territory was wearing thin. Something had to give. On Thursday April 11 1861 Confederate Brig. Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard dispatched aides to Maj. Anderson to demand the forts surrender. Anderson who had once taught Beauregard at West Point refused. The next morning at 430 a.m. Confeder- ate batteries opened fire on Fort Sumter and continued for 34 hours. The Civil War had begun Fort Sumpter earned acting credits in the movie Glory Fort Gorges was modeled on Fort Sumter. What a wild duet.

Consid- er this comment Just pulled Glory off the shelf and watched it this week. After pulling out the maps I was confused about the mov- ies orientation of the siege. Hollywood why did you mess this up Why didnt they just cut and flip that part of the film reel I was so frustratedIactuallypulledalongmirrorout of my closet and set it up to watch the siege in the correct direction. Much more realistic. Would the selfie he likely snapped while doing this have undone the effect Which makes the strikingly silent career of Fort Gorges Fort Sumters northern counterpart all the more extraordinary. Built of granite Sumter is brick from 1859 to 1865 and attacked only by gulls Fort Gorges is the still center of the spinning world. After World War II Navy subma- rine cables were stored inside without fan- fare. Spectacularly nothing continued to happen after that. In 1960 the government gave up the ghost and deeded it to the City of Portland which continues to own it today. W ith time its only enemy heres the assessment as Landmarks sees it Threat Rapid Property Deterioration Fort Gorges has become over- grown with vegetation and shows signs of masonry deterioration. Lack of maintenance and investment in masonry repair lack of a long-term preservation plan and its location in a harsh marine environment battered by wind and weather will continue to compro- mise the structural integrity of the brick and granite masonry and overall preservation of the structure. While citizens have shown some initial interest in forming a Friends of Fort Gorges group the scale lack of access and large financial needs of the fort create tremendous challenges to its preservation. Earlier this year the City of Portland announced a publicprivate partnership with the Army Corps of Engineers and the non-profitFriendsofFortGorges.TheArmy Corps will begin hazard mitigation on the site this year using federal funds available for the purpose of restoring former defense sites. And the Maine Historic Preservation Commission has given the city a 20000 grant to fund a master plan for future work. Maybe after all Fort Gorges is our good- luck charm. The best forts are those where re-enactors dont get to do anything but play solitaire. n C M Y CM MY CY CMY K Consultation Aquarium Science Graduates on Staff Freshwater Specialist Saltwater Specialist Installation We have all the tools materials to set up the perfect aquarium in your home or ofce.

A pr i l 2 0 1 6 7 9 Hungry EyE KerryBrett Meet the new sommelier in town. By ClairE z. CramEr W hen Ralph Hersom was named Wine Director of Le Cirque 2000 in 1997 at age 26 Aman- da Hesser wrote in the New York Times that although he didnt look or act the parthe doesnt wear a tastevin around his neck or a scowl on his facehe is in charge of one of the largest and most prestigious wine lists in the world. He was the excep- tion among many of New Yorks somme- liers who suddenly seemed to be young hotshots. Their spontaneity in making us discover new things is more interesting than their knowledge chef Daniel Boulud told Hesser. But Hersom had come to Le Cirque after a hitch as Cellarmaster at Windows On The World at New Yorks World Trade Center where he trained under wine maven and edu- catorKevinZralysohewasbringingyouthful enthusiasm and the chops. By 2005 Hersom was finished with the fabulous New York restaurant scene. For the next 11 years Ralph and his wife Kim Her- som ran Ralphs Wine Spirits in Hing- ham Massachusetts which has just been sold. It was there they developed their in- store Corks Forks wine and food pairing classes which theyll take to new venues. Hersom likes to keep busy. Hes just tak- en the newly created position of Category Manager of Beer Wine and Spirits for the Hannaford supermarket chain through- out the Northeast. From his office at corpo- rate headquarters he plans to refresh those familiar aisles. How did you get your start in restaurants and wine I first got involved in restaurants working at Legal Sea Foods in Worcester Massachu- setts back in the early 90s. Im from South Grafton and Id been studying electrical engineering. Legal has a great training pro- gram for their wait staff part of which is a wine course. After that there was no turn- ing back. I was bitten by the wine bug I sold my possessions and bought a one-way ticket to San Francisco with the hopes and dream of becoming a sommelier. Where did you do your journeyman work before Windows on the World and Le Cirque My first sommelier job was at Mooses Res- taurant in San Francisco circa 1994-1996 after which I headed back east for the re- opening of Windows on the World which had been closed since the first terrorist bombing in 1993 working under the great wine guru Kevin Zraly. In her memoir Garlic and Sapphires former New York Times restaurant critic Ruth Reichl describes the night she visited Windows on the World to review it. She raves about you as affable and enthusiastic the kind of person who could make a wine lover out of anyone. Was she niceor was she demanding Was she in one of her disguises Shewasextremely nice I had noidea who she was as I was fresh off the plane from San Francisco and even the maitre d failed to Somewhere HereHere Its Wine OClock Experience the Legend New Englands only distiller of Absinthe.

Were amazedatthenewspotsopeningupandjust how many great places there are to choose from that seem to have it all dialed in. On our first visit we met some friends for a delicious brunch at Petite Jacqueline which is ironic since the chef was Fred Eliot a Le Cirque alumniand were now living in Longfellow Square. Oneofthetop10trybeforeyoudiefoods has to be Eventides Brown Butter Lobster Roll. The kids love Duckfats Tahitian Vanilla Bean shake with a side of fries as well as pizza at Flatbread Company and of course theres theOmakaseatMiyakeaJapaneserestaurant that can at times rival New York Citys. Piccolo for brunch is a truly wonder- ful experience. And one of the most com- fortable bars to dine at and try some fun wines is Fore Street. The bartendersom- melier Adam Beckwith is fantastic. Weve had fabulous cocktails at Portland Hunt Alpine Club cant wait to settle in and vis- it chef Matt Ginn and his team at EVO. Chef David Levi of Vinland has to be cooking some of the most creative and flavorful dish- end home in New Paltz. He held his birth- day party at the restaurant and what a par- ty Robin Williams Bruce Springsteen Tom Hanks to name a few of the guests. It was held on a Sunday night and the restaurant was closed. Sirio Maccioni Le Cirques own- er had been on vacation in Italy and flew in especially that day for the celebration. Hannaford shoppers have benefited from the updated and more sophisticated food selections available there in recent years. Is your job to do the same for beverages Exactly. Ive been hired by Hannaford to help improve upon the selection of wine beer and spirits they currently carry. Im fortunate that past decisions have estab- lished a great foundation for me to build upon. Ill use my fine-wine craft beer and specialty spirits background to bring some excitement to the center-store aisles helping to elevate it to the next level. Had you spent time in Portland before moving here My wife and I visited Portland seven times in the last year and a halfits definitely one recognize her even though she was not in a disguise Needless to say one of the manag- ers noticed her on her way out after having finished dinner. I didnt sleep for weeks until that review came out. A humorous piece in the British magazine Punch decries the current frat-boy competitive style of the American sommelier or somm with next-gen swagger and tattoos on display. Your thoughts Sommeliers these days are definitely differ- ent than the buttoned-up suit-and-tie type of yesteryear due in large part to the more relaxed dining atmosphere that we now have. As long as theyre making wine acces- sible to the masses in a user friendly non-in- timidating kind of way I have no problem. The masses doesnt exactly describe diners at Windows on the World or Le Cirque. Robert de Niro was a regular at Le Cirque 2000. He was very low key would dine ear- ly around 6 p.m. and wed always put him at table39inthecorneroutofthepublicsview. He really loves wine. We chatted often about the possibility of planting grapes at his week- 119 Exchange Street Portland Maine 04101 207.808.8800 thepresshotel.com WINE DOWN INKWELL located in the lobby of The Press Hotel offers Sommelier selected wines by the glass Sunday through Thursday from 500pm to 700pm for 6.00 a glass.

Then theres the monthly Sunday dim sum at Honey Paw the Fry Bread with Uni Butter and the Lob- ster Wontons are ridiculous Im looking forward to developing a tast- ing group in Portland as well as monthly BYOBwine-themeddinnersatarestaurants to be determined. Its a great way to learn about wine by sharing great bottles Ive col- lected in my cellar which currently holds about 1000 bottles. If people are interested well do Corks Forks events in Maine. Whats your perfect wine for a lobster roll For the classic Maine lobster roll I love to drink a white wine made from the Viognier grape. On the import side either Yves Cuil- leron or Pierre Gaillards Condrieu from Francewhich was one of Robert DeNiros favorites coincidentallyor Illahe Vine- yards Viognier from Oregon. What inspired you to get out of restaurants and into retail stores Are restaurants increasingly no place for the affable and enthusiastic Id worked for Le Cirque 2000 the entire seven years it was located at the New York Palace Hotel and the last dinner there was December 31 2004. HBO has a great doc- umentary titled Le CirqueA Table in Heav- en. I woke up on New Years Day 2005 and decided it was best to go out on a high note leave the restaurant biz and take my talents to the retail side of things. Were you burned out on rich wine snobs I must say during my seven years at Le Cirque I found the clientele to be very knowledgeable about wine and encoun- tered very little to no wine snobbery de- spite dealing with the top one percent of the one percent. Certainly it was very stressful operating at that level for seven years but Im organized and Id look at the reserva- tion book before service and organize the wines and stemware for the various VIPs. Very rarely did they look at the wine list as I knew what their favorites were and prepared them in advance. So your real skill is guiding people to discover what they really like. I figured these individuals have to make hundreds of decisions daily so I would make one for them Im still in contact with my former colleagues at Le Cirque as well as some of the clientele. And with my other passionmusicI still consult on the wine side of things for various musicians and bands for their pri- vate collections. Le Cirque was just down the street from Sony BMG so all the music executives would come in and bring their artists in. Mike D. loves white Burgun- dy of the Beastie Boys would celebrate his birthday with us. Rush is one of my all-time favorites I showed up at their final show in Boston last year with some Grand Cru Bur- gundy for Geddy and Alex who were happy to reciprocate with backstage passes.

Designed by John Calvin Stevens in 1910 its an end unit of a handsome brick row of J.B. Brown properties that leased to ten- ants for nearly seven decades. A background email forwarded from the sellers identifies art professor Brooks Stoddard and his wife a Waynflete instructor as the first to buy it as a single-family home in 1978 but she passed away before they could move in.

Shed slept restlessly during the noreaster two nights before. She couldnt recall her dreams but his presence in the dank morning air was unmis- takable. Wary but not anxious she could sense the tide was turning. Shed banished him from her consciousness for five years keeping him submerged like the ship- wreck he was but shed never doubted hed resur- face. One day a tempest would draw him from the deep like other flotsam from her past and shed have to face him and force him back down. Yesterday caught her channel surfing. Despite de- liberately avoiding old TV shows she felt closed in by the storm and began exploring. And there he was young and handsome strong and honorable as per- fect as shed first seen him fifteen years before. In another life shed watched that series faithful- ly and had developed a juvenile crush on the charac- ter he portrayed. It was a safe crush separated from real life by fantasy anonymity and the distance be- tween the East and West coasts. She could laugh about it over beer with her friends at Deweys. Five years later Fate relocated her to Los Ange- les and introduced them through a mutual friend. She found the man embodied the fictional character and for a few years it seemed they were meant for Sea Change CoreyTempleTon Unique Quality Toys Games for All Ages Offering a wide selection that is constantly being updated and changed puzzles books puppets games and toys for both indoors and outdoors.

Her departure from California had been tumultuous her return to Maine convinced her that the years in L.A. were simply an ex- tension of her childish fantasy. Her child- hood home offered safe harbor. But the dreams and the old TV show had piqued her curiosity and this morning so- cial media served as harbor master to guide him to her slip. How stupid of her to Google his name How self-destructive to explore the website hed created for his philanthrop- ic project. Hollywood had made his life comfort- able and hed poured his resources into her dearest social cause. How dare hethe doc- umentary had been her idea. She had shared her vision with him at their introduction and theyd spent hours in passionate al- truistic conversation. She had the intimate knowledge of the issues he the connections and experience to create a film to educate the world. Impetuously she signed up to follow the site. Fate set its hook without hesita- tion or mercy. How are you His tenuous testing of frozen waters. Her mind raced as adrenaline dumped and she yanked her hands from the key- board as if from the mouth of a shark. The answer to that simple question was not simple. Im fine without you would beg a dissertation of her achievements and sal- vaged life. I feel cheated that you did this without me would be closer to the truth because she once believed theyd be part- ners in this venture. He was making a dif- ference without the slightest nod to their scuttled relationship. She stared at the question for a moment then retreated for a cup of tea and some fresh air. How are you The question trailed in her wake like a hungry seagull. Im just fine damn it. She sipped her tea relishing its earthy Portland Magazine cares about writing and readers.Thats why we maintain a fiction section.Writers we have published in these pages include Jason Brown Kate Christensen Joan Connor Jack Driscoll Sebastian Junger Christina Baker Kline Andrew McCarthy Mameve Medwed Rick Moody Morgan Callan Rogers and Lewis Turco.

She watched the ice-en- crusted fishing boats emerging from be- yond the Calendar Islands and chugging into Portland Harbor with their bounty. She drank in the bays heady saltiness and set her mind adrift to the cacophony of marine traffic bell buoys and water birds. Hot tea and smoke from the still-icy harbor mingled into misty tendrils adding visual poetry to the diversion. How are you The Spring Point Ledge fog horn moaned its misgivings shattering her reverie. Why the hell should you care You were so wrapped up in yourself and your fans. How are you A Coast Guard cut- ter blasted a warning as it broke up the ice choking the main shipping channel. You scourged my soul and you embar- rassed the hell out of me in the tabloids. I hat- ed that life. Im glad to be free of it and you. How are you The question hovered precariously above her balcony. Shit Succumbing to the bitterness she slipped back inside but left the slider open a smidge hoping the onshore breeze would purge him away. The question was waiting on the lap- top screen but was hidden behind a slide show of book signings vacations and fam- ily and friends. She smiled back at her smil- ing image kayaking near Peaks Island. Im okay. I have a great life. She took down the screen saver. As the kayak faded from view a second question surfaced. Are you there As she read the words she could hear his gentle voice as if he were standing at her shoulder. You know I amyou can see Im still signed on. She finished her tea and set the deli- cate cup on its saucer concentrating on the chickadee-and-pine motif to delay looking back at the screen. Finding no respite there her eyes sought out and caressed his words. Are you there She felt his hand softly on hers. I guess I owe you a reply. I started this.
