Sargent Editor Publisher As Maine Goes So Goes The Nation W ay back when it used to be about politics. Now its about style. Weve shown how the price of lobsters predicts the Dow Jones aver- age better than hemlines. We know how the world is going crazy pre-ordering L.L. Bean boots because we have something they want. We know lobster-roll trucks are rolling over Manhattan andBrooklyn.Intermsofmarket- ing Maine is going through a smooth patch. The Maine craze has gone so deep into the worlds psychic geography were all the way to creating a Maine outside of Maine. Because were pitch perfect. Actress Anna Kendricks well deserved fame for her inde- pendent spirit her sense of self and her values from being a Portland native are one cultural marker. Not to mention her kindness. As one of a flash mob of celebrities who value education shes just sent funds to 31 DonorsChoose.org projects right here in her home state. International figures like Stephen King and Joan Benoit Samuelson both of whom dare to be different but in different ways are part of the here here. Heres a new example. Kennebunk artist John Gable knows this state like the pine tree at the end of his mind. His work is yare nautical Maine to the bone. To mention his name is to evoke fireworks over the Narragansett on Goochs Beach rac- ing yachts all the beauty overload we have north of Boston. So why is he in Washington D.C. I was in Washington recently eating oysters from Maines Damariscotta River at Clydes of Gallery Place a clubby pan- eled restaurant specializing in steak seafood and Edwardian self-indulgence. It was a fun coincidence to taste Maine inside a towering mixed-use shopping mall and cineplex on H Street. Then I looked behind my table and saw a huge Gable oil al- most wall-sized hailing me like an old friend. This fanciful artwork a convergence of nostalgic woody station wagons at a picnic complete with a Hogarthian coterie of picnickers is brushed in Gables signature style yetits aimed beyond. I was delighted to find Maine following me. By the time I left the restaurant Maine was sur- rounding me Bub because Gable has multiple significant works in Clydes. Even Gables painting of the Capitol Building is somehow rendered and deepened with 50 shades of Maine. When I catch up with him a few days later hes just returned to the Kennebunks af- ter installing a major piece at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in D.C. steps from The White House. As he puts it Glad you enjoyed seeing the work at Clydes but the big deal this trip was the unveiling of new paintings at The Willard. Quite a moment with the Japanese delegation attending The Maine mystique in Gables work is so universally in demand its pulling him and us to commissions in major urban centers who crave what we Mainers take for granted ev- ery day. Maine without borders. Maybe thats why we have so many readers who crave the here hereeven when theyre there.

Local favorite Hackmatack Playhouse takes us into the upcoming season. By SaraH Moore T his June Hackmatack Playhouse in Berwick will open its barn doors to the public for its 44th consecu- tive summer season since its founding in 1972 by farmer and Berwick native Carl- ton S. Guptill. The Guptill family who have farmed the land since the 1600s welcome around 1000 visi- tors a week to their rustic barn-con- version theater situated on 30 acres of rolling fields where roams the second Hackmatack attractionthe familys herd of buffalo. Its an un- usual yet effective combination. I think we are the only theater with a bison herd in Maine may- be in the whole country says Mi- chael Guptill Carltons son and successor. Not sotheres another in South Dakota. This adds new meaning to the term hoofer. Summer 2016 will see Hackmatack named for the native coniferous tree stag- ing four plays from June 16 through La- bor Day weekend. Theatrics commence with Noises Off a raucous backstage farce. Next up is the vintage Leonard Ber- nstein Broadway hit On the Town follow- ing three young sail- ors on shore leave in New York City. Then its Once Upon a Mattress the comical and absurd musical retelling of Hans Christian Andersons fairy tale The Princess and the Pea. Summer season will close with a much- loved Maine original by John Cariani de- Ruthless closed out the 2015 season. Hackmatack is not the kind of place people to come and sip champagne in silence.

Its all about tradItIon T his season is Crystal Lisbons sec- ond at the directorial helm al- though she has worked on and off with the playhouse for around 15 years. With a background in acting dance and choreography Guptill describes the Lisbon as bringing a youthful energy to the the- ater and as the first director never to have worked alongside Guptill Senior her arrival marks a new era for the playhouse. The torch has really been passed to a new generation he says. For Guptill a deep understanding of the nature of the- ater was as important as professional cre- dentials in the search for the new direc- tor. Someone who understood the feel of Hackmatack and what its about. We are a traditional summer stock theatre. Its a re- ally homemade atmosphere. Lisbon herself is certainly familiar with the unique appeal of the playhouse.Words can never quite express the magic that is Hackmatack. Its the people the barn itself the atmosphere and the craziness of putting a major production up in two weeks. It ruins you for other theaters in a way KeepIng It real For Guptill who maintains a full-time year-round job selling produce in Boston the overall experience and sense of commu- nity is at the heart of the Hackmatack ethos. He concedes that the theater itself doesnt turn much profit and its been more chal- lenging in recent years by the acquisition of many local stores by chain corporations who typically dont support local theater in the same way. As a result little has changed at the Berwick playhouse over the years in- cluding few renovations to the original barn conversion parking areas and walkways. In 2011 a donation effort was even launched to raise funds to support the ongoing main- tenance work on the theater with patrons encouraged to give donations toward a checklist of improvement projects such as installing hot water in the bathrooms. Despite these limited resources a glance at ticket pricing reveals a reasonable 25 per adult for a weekday performance. Guptill ac- tively encourages families to bring their own refreshments to enjoy before the show.

We want peo- ple to relax and feel at home here. Its not the kind place people come to sip champagne in silence. Instead you are likely to see fam- ilies picnicking outdoors in sight of the roaming bison herd and indoors sampling Gayle Guptills homemade pies at intermis- sion and laughing along to crowd-pleasing classic productions. Guptill sees Hackmatack as a means of introducing new people to the world of the- ater foregoing cutting-edge production or subject matter in favor of a more main- stream and lighthearted approach. Artisti- cally we are looking to be a gateway experi- ence into theater. Thankfully for the Guptill family the nostalgic appeal of Hackmatacks barn loca- tion works in their favor few of his faithful patrons would accept changes of any kind to the farms rustic set-up. If you went back 30 years you would definitely recognize Hack- matack. People dont want Hackmatack to change Its part of their summer tradition.

Ive served on the board for the OMAA for a number of years as well as various collaborations from coordinating the acquisition of Bernard Langlais sculp- tures for the museum garden to guest cu- rating last years photography exhibitions. Im also back and forth between Maine and Connecticut regularly so it was a very natural step for me to accept the position. What does the interim role entail My aim is to ensure the smoothing run- ning of the museum and its collections across all levels. Specifically maintaining continuity between Ron Crusan and the new director who Ill also be helping to prepare to take over. Whats grabbing you this very second Im already excited to oversee the installa- tion of a permanent collection of works by artists from the Ogunquit arts colony be- tween 1896-1946. The fact that we have such a strong body of work that were able to es- tablish a permanent collection is testament to how much of an inspiration Ogunquit was for so many artists.

In a re- sort as colorful as the Kennebunks where this 1933 landmark on 1896 granite serves as the link between the gin-martini side of the Ken- nebunk River Kennebunk and the vodka- martini side the Port thats the story of a century. Two centuries actually. M AY 2 0 1 6 3 9 Landmark AeriAlphotobymAineimAging-dAvecleAvelAndinsetphotobyrev.FrAnklAmbcourtesykennebunkporthistoricAlsociety TheTheThe Kennebunks beginnings A toll drawbridge bridge was first built here by subscription in 1810 to accommodate growing Kennebunk River shipping and shipbuilding industries. The drawbridge was made free in 1831 when the dirt path that extended from either side of it was des- ignated a County Road. Since then dam- aging storms have occasionally necessi- tated repairs but most of the major bridge rebuilding projects there have enjoyed the benefit of advance warning. During one freshet on March 1 1896 the old wooden drawbridge unexpectedly col- lapsed with a reverberating crash when huge chunks of ice rushing downriver on a vio- lent ebb tide cut through one of its support- ing pilings. An impromptu bridge committee was assembled to ensure transit between the Lower Village train depot and Kennebunk- port hotels was in place before the arriv- al of money-spending summer folk. Year- round residents of both villages who shared a post office a milkman and a fam- ily culture suffered immediate hardship with the unexpected loss of their inter- town connection. A temporary bridge was hastily con- structed between the coal shed in Lower Village and the wharf where Davids KPT restaurant now stands. The bridge met the urgent need but its stationary design meant it had to be dismantled every time a coal schooner made a delivery to Titcombs Coal Shed on Perkins Wharf. Its days are numbered The Mathew Lanigan Bridge was built in 1933 and its due for replacement next year. Plan on trading a bit of traffic disruption for a much better structurefor cars and pedestrians. landmark 40 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine fromtopfredortlipTeresaChrzanowskiFlisiukl Falling down Within a couple of months it became pain- fully clear the permanent bridge wouldnt be ready in time for tourist season. Support pilings were added to the temporary bridge and efforts were made to make its approach- es more presentable for the summer visi- tors of a certain class. The dark and dirty coal shed at the Lower Village approach quickly earned the derog- atory nickname The Subway for attract- ing what the press called the unwashed and thirsty highwaymen and noble desert- ers of toil. Drunks pickpockets and the unemployed lurking under cover there were equally offensive to ladies of refinement who wouldnt willingly cross the bridge even at midday. In fact the ladies were so affected it became necessary to pull Consta- ble Dolliff from his regular uptown beat to patrol the Subway. Construction of the permanent bridge was delayed by one problem after another not the least of which was project cost-shar- ing between Kennebunk and Kennebunk- port in light of the juxtaposition of each town to the actual channel. At the begin- ning of July 1896 it was noted in The Wave Today the bridge is but little nearer com- pletion than it was the morning after the storm. Kennebunkport selectmen ulti- mately agreed to pay the lions share of the bridge replacement costs and the project crawled forward. troubled waters A swing span design was approved and the lowest of eleven bids to build the span off-site was accepted. Preliminary coffer-dam work for laying the supporting stone abutments commenced but was halted after a week of fruitless pumping. The following comment on the cofferdam pumping apparatus which cost 80 per day to use appeared in the Bidd- eford Journal on July 10 1896 Work on the new bridge was again postponed Thursday.

One of the Subway tramps who had in a previous life been a riveter by trade had pointed out to the workmen that the iron span was a second-hand affair and he proceeded to prove his assertion.

First its im- mediately apparent hes averse to me aiming my camera at him. Here he says pointing to a pile of work in progress. More of myself is here than here. He waves his hand over his body. In fact my first recognition of Patch was through his work so he has a point.

I knew hed put a lot of thought into the project so I said Well lets do it. At Mayo Streetwhich Patch describes as an old church with stained-glass windows a funky space with walls that have their own limitationshis plan was to occupy the central space that hadnt been utilized with the vaulted ceilings. The choir loft was under renovation so there was a cut-out where he envisioned a piece that would cir- cumnavigate and weave through the space and the cut-out. At last the perfect venue. Hed dreamed of making as many sculptures as possi- ble from his list but with only six weeks to show time McGough came up with an idea for a more profound experience. She invit- Atlantic Center for the Arts where he studied with Mark Dion and others whose work has been enchanted by the natural world. Dion and I would go to Cape Canaveral where there are lots of birds to be seen right around the launch pad including storks flamingos cranes blue bills. Migration was created originally for an installation at Mayo Street Arts MSA in Portland. Then it took off. I was in a show there called Knock Knock based on Norse mythology and the director Blainor McGough asked me if Id do a solo exhibit subsequent to that. i was first attracted to the maritime mo- tif of his work his aesthetic and color McGough said. When he first told me about his plans for Migration he caught me by surprise. I didnt know he did sculpture. I thought wed be hanging more prints paint- ings. I loved the idea because I love puppets and papier-mch and I always want- ed to do something with that space the high ceilings. People had floated the idea ple who asked if Id seen their sons birds on the fourth floor. I had not but went up to have a look. Am I glad I did. Migration the title of the installation consists of 37 intricate live- ly imaginative bird sculptures magically in flight over the stairs from the third to the fourth floor of the museum. The birds are from my life list says Patch who has documented his avian sight- ings since 2005. It all started when I was living in New York working in museums and doing installations. My friend working in the Brooklyn Museum was from Minne- sota. Im from Maine. Wed go birding on Staten Island and all around the five bor- oughs. Theres a lot to see in New York as its right on a migratory pathway. There are tons and tons of birds in Central Park in a con- centrated area. Its funny. Much of my work was inspired by birds in an urban area. In 2008 Patch did a residency in Florida at the I dreamt of taking a simple walk in the woods. I missed the ocean my family and friends. Patch works out of a studio in Portlands State Theatre building. M AY 2 0 1 6 6 1 ArtworkspicturedcourtesyoftheArtist ed Patch to engage in a Mayo Street Community Arts Residency where hed work in an after-school program with children from East Bayside and oth- er parts of Maine. Id never collaborated before Patch says and couldnt figure out how that would work. But it did. He really dug in and took time to work with the kids teaching them his style and the way he was painting the papier-mch and exploring with them ideas about birds and natural history McGough says. My mom pitched in too Patch says. It was nice because everyone had his or her own bird story. The kids learned about the birds as we went along. More secretly I was learning from them and the way they looked at the birds. In hindsight McGough says we should have put it off for a year and applied for grants but we didnt. With herculean effort this great thing happened. It brought the space to life. P atchs birds on exhibit at MSA from June through September 2015 were offered for sale from 250 to 1200 per sculpture. Among the interested collec- tors was the Portland Museum of Art. Mayo Streets Larry Hayden a board member was thrilled with PMAs purchase of 37 Migration birds. My first response whenIsawtheinstallationwasthatitshould go into a public collection like Alison Hil- dreths sculptural piece at the Portland Pub- lic Libraryit just animates the space. McGough adds While I loved the birds at MSA I am pleased they migrated. Migration is now in the PMAs perma- nent collection. It will remain as part of the fourth-floor Modern Menagerie exhib- it further animated with work by Dahlov Ipcar and Bernard Langlais for five years. Sculpted papier-mchd and collaged the birds wear Patchs signature style in their windless motion swooping with seren- dipity. Their distinctive colors and markings were created with discarded pieces from his studio of woodblock prints gravestone rub- bings and hand-painted papers. Patchs earliest roots started with draw- ings under the guidance of his grandfa- ther James Guy a WPA art- ist and social surrealist. His grandmother Clara Skinner created woodblock prints and illustrations for the New Yorker and later turned to Op Art showing at MoMA in the acclaimed 1965 exhibit The Responsive Eye. Going to Guys shows in New York as a child was an electric inspiration for Patch now 41. While still in middle school he began his studies at Portland School of Art. He went on to complete his BFA in 1997 I have 150-plus birds on my list and there are only 37 in the flock at PMA. Id do another installation C M Y CM MY CY CMY K 62 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine Artist At work at MECA and his MFA at the Art Insti- tute of Chicago in 2000. In 2002 he won a Northern Arts Residency at Atlin Centre for the Arts in British Columbia Canada. He was awarded a Skowhegan School Residen- cy as recipient of the William Zorach grant in 2004 with further residencies at Hewno- aks Artist Colony in Lovell Maine in 2013 and 2014. t hese years reflect the somewhat mi- gratory nature in Patch himself. Fol- lowing the studies at the Art Insti- tute of Chicago he spent two years in the Second City finding inspiration from artists like Jim Nutt who was part of the collabor- ative called Hairy Who a group that works with images from popular culture like com- ics. Patch was also inspired during this time by Nutts renowned collection of folk art His house was full of it fascinating. Another influence at the Art Institute was Arturo Herrera an advisor in grad school. At the time Patch says I was focusing more on painting and drawing but Herreras work in collage started seep- ing in. It continues to play in my work. It was also in Chica- go that he started making landscape paintings the begin- nings of a yearning for more rural inspiration. I found living in an urban place without a car meant I couldnt get away from peo- ple. I dreamt of taking a simple walk in the woods. I missed the ocean my family and friends. I wanted to return to the East Coast. In the end the Midwest just didnt cut it for me. Returning to Maine for two years Patch landed his coveted Skowhegan School resi- dency. There he met some New York-based artists who lured him to big shows and crowds for the next 10 years. And again the homing instinct loomed There was a lot of excitement and stimulation but to be truly inspired I need a less urban environment. A natural setting informs my work. In New York City even if you have a car you have to sit in it for at least an hour before you come near anything like a natural setting. Birding was a way of getting at that but when you find you know every sin- gle lamp post in Central Park by heart you know its time to leave. Making Maine once again his perch working as an instruc- tor and exhibitions coordinator at Maine College of Art Patch is grateful for his studio in the State Theatre building homing back to his studio of 14 years prior although I have to work full time in order to pay for it. Right now I have a lot of things going on including recent shows at Lewis Gal- lery in Portland Public Library and the Cen- ter for Maine Contemporary Art at Evans Contemporary in Ontario Canada The Parlour Gallery in Brooklyn the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York the Chicago Cultural Center and Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and more.

Pollack Fine Arts gallery space on Forest Avenue next to Portland Stage. And hes considering an expansion on Migration I have 150-plus birds on my list and there are only 37 in the flock at PMA. Id do another installation separate from that one. Patch is pleased with the muse- ums acquiring the first flock as he wanted the piece to remain intact. He also enjoys the way its exhibited. The best part You cant see it all at once. You see it gradually and have to physically move through it to see it in its entirety. The spatial play reminds me of an installation at the Guggenheim in the 1990s by Ellsworth Kel- ly another artist to whom I respond strong- lyhis patterns colors collage studies and color combinations. It was a great installa- tion of paintings really activating the space in a wayless about the physicality of it all.

M AY 2 0 1 6 6 5 Hungry EyE FromtopmeaghanmauricerenderingsbyericholsteinFriedFishphotocourtesyFishinships Kitchen Maines first food labcommercial kitchentasting room comes to town. By ClairE Z. CramEr Y ou have to have a little moxie to pay half a million dollars for 5000-plus square feet of empty building in West Bayside that just last year was one of The Bollards Thats My Dump targets. Neil Spillane who with business part- ner Eric Holstein has purchased a hulking empty brick warehouse at 72 Parris Street leads the way into the brick-walled gloom. This place started as Hirnings Bak- ery. There was the wholesale Alma Florist business for a while. Then it went through a phase as a boxing gym. In its unrenovat- ed state illuminated by a few bare bulbs the brick-walled warehouse does have a certain Fight Club aura. The Vision Thing This is going to be the face of Fork Food Lab Spillane says. Fork Food Lab is a self- described collaborative commercial food kitchen serving new and existing business- es. Spillane and Holstein are now standing in the square cinder-block former garage attached to the left side of the 1910 brick building. A few days before ren- ovations begin the future face of Fork Food Lab doesnt look like much. But this garage will become a tasting room and shop wel- coming retail customers. An embedded video on the forkfoodlab. com website shows the bleak garage trans- formed into an airy space with table seating indoors and out the cinder blocks vanished behind attractive siding. The work is being done by Landmarc Construction of Portland who also built the clean handsome interiors of Roustabout Sur Lie Central Provisions and Portland Hunt Alpine Club. People will be able to come right into the tasting room and eat shop and see what were up to says Spillane. And what theyll be up to is collaborating with food producers of all sorts who need licensed commercial kitchen space to pre- pare food for sale and use elsewhere. We supply everythingprep space stoves ovens storage cold storage and clean inspected licensed commercial work space says Spillane.

Union Kitchen began in 2012 when Jonas Singer Cullen gilchrist opened the Blind Dog Caf in D.C. Blind Dogs chocolate chip cookies became so popular they needed an off-site facility to bake them which led to the purchase of a 7500-square-foot warehouse which led to so much kitchen space they started signing up other food producers to share it. this led to becoming a full-fledged food incubator with multiple locations a distribution network and a grocery story featuring Union Kitchen members foods. last year it came full circle. Blind Dog closed and turned into a permanent pop-up space for Union Kitchens members.

The tasting room itself will offer Fork Food Lab members products and be staffed by Fork employees. The shared commercial kitchenlab is going on the second floor. The renderings indicate a long room with ovens stoves and cold-storage units lining the walls. Strategic planning Spillane and Holstein did a lot of homework before deciding to start Maines first innova- tive collaborative food incubatorcommer- cial kitchen. The tasting room however was their own idea. Our model was Union Kitchen in Wash- ington D.C. and places like Common- wealth Kitchen and Stock Pot Malden in Boston says Holstein. These are all bigger operations with multiple locations. New York has them too and the city encourag- es them with grant money. F ork has enlisted a few high-profile think-tank consultants who will be available to members for advice on branding labeling distribution and le- gal matters. Among them are Ben De La Cretaz finance director of Stock Pot Mal- den Sen. Justin Alfond D-Portland a fel- low Bayside entrepreneur and co-owner of Bayside Bowl Caroline Paras of the Greater Portland Council of Governments Taja Do- chendorf founder of Pulp Wire branding and marketing attorney Ezekiel Callan- an and Mac McCabe the veteran sustain- able-business guru and former CEO of the ONaturals restaurants. Its worth noting that Holstein and Spill- ane have so far put Fork together without any crowd-funding campaigns. Were going to have one Kickstarter effort though for the retail tasting room. Well be announcing it soon says Holstein. WhatS cooking So who are these members other than Ge- lato Fiasco and what will they be creating Were not quite ready to name names but some of the foods include specialty pop- corn smoked nuts craft soda maple syrup and kale chips says Holstein. Kale chips are still a thing Spillane laughs. We try to steer away from calling trends. Weve also got bakers caterers and diet-specific food-ready-to-go.

By Ralph heRsom M ay 2016 71 Everyday Sommelier MeaghanMaurice T his month may I present what I feel are three terrific wines offering some of the best buzz for the buck. All of them are available here in Maine for under 20. First one of the best sparkling wines produced in the U.S. is from New Mexico yes you read that correctly. The NV Gru- et Brut 17.99 is a non-vintage NV spar- kling wine made from a blend of 75-percent Chardonnay and 25-percent Pinot Noir. Its the perfect wine for an aperitif with won- derful aromas of green apple and citrus. Next up is the 2014 Frico Bianco 9.99 from Scarpetta wine company which is owned by master sommelier and my good friend Bobby Stuckey. This delicious Italian white hails from the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of northeast Italy. A blend of Char- donnay and the local varietal called Friula- no this wine is medium-bodied and crisp as it sees no time in oak. Perfect for May with aromas of fresh-cut white flowers and crisp apples its an excellent wine for sal- ad courses or paired with grilled white fish served with a parsnip pure. Last but not least is the tasty 2013 Cha- teau Cadenette 10.99 from the most southerly appellation of the Rhne wine re- gion called Costires de Nmes. A blend of 80-percent Syrah and 20-percent Grenache this spicy and robust red wine is perfect with grilled red meats as well as a piece of aged cheddar cheese. n Ralph Hersom is the former wine director at Le Cirque and cellar master at Windows on the World in New York.He is the manager of winebeerand spirits for Hannaford Supermarkets.

By Rhea Ct RoBBins A s a child when I heard mettre en valeur spoken I heard it as if it were a way of measuring ones ef- forts leaning towards excellence despite the dictionary definition of measuring quantity. Voices in my head stream words like mettre en valeur on a frequency like a personal ra- dio and it is not easy to tune the sounds off or out. Once set in motion the memory of the wordsspokenissomethingquitelikepri- vate poetry playing a melody with harmony as accompanimentmyself and the speaker in communication. As a child I made up my own lexicon of definitions by the atmosphere or tem- perament in which the words were uttered. Bearing daily witness to conversations be- tween native mother-tongue speakers I ar- rived at the essences of meanings rather than their actual intent. Bilingual speakers inside jokes or un- believable seriousness in discussions about the common causes of events presented ideas to me in my youth that live on in my adult head. Dead- ly delights of ver- biage taken in as a child with a childs version of the mean- ings of the words via the imagination. For me the sense of the words mettre en valeur embolden me to become the Lancelot or Guinevere of circumstance. To place oneself in a position of extreme or excellent valor. And nothing less. n Rhea Ct Robbins is the author of down the Plains.

InterVIeW By ClaIre Z. Cramer I n July of 2014 Dr. Deb Walterssci- entist grandmother and social activ- istset out via kayak from Maine on a personal quest to raise funds for Safe Passage an organization dedicated to pro- viding education and health services for the children of the sprawling Guatemala City dump neighborhood. A few months into her voyage she was stricken with a herniated disk in her neck and was forced to suspend the trip. Spinal surgery in South Carolina and rehab ensued. Unde- terred she got back in her kayak and complet- ed her 2500-mile trip this past January. What was it like to be all alone in a kayak with a health crisis I had a massively herniated disk in my neck that was causing muscle loss and doing a little nerve damage. It wasnt related to the kayaking expedition but I think from about 20 years ago when I accidentally dropped a kayak on my head and went around for over a week with my neck at an angle. It was January of 2015 in Georgetown South Carolina that I finally got the right diagnosis. Id been having some trouble for years but thought it would go away when I was in better shape. Instead it just got worse. I stopped four times during the expedition for medical diagnosis and advice. Folks gave I built my wooden kayak 16 years ago but Joey Schott of Turning Point Kayaks remodeled it for me just for this expedition. He made it fit my body perfectly. It has four watertight compartments. So just like the Titanic its unsinkable.

Some warned me about possible nerve dam- age but a Maine physician thought it was just tendon problems and told me Put on your big-girl pants and get back out there and kayak. So I did. I kept paddling south along the South Carolina coast. In Georgetown I was staying with a nurse. She realized right away I was real- ly hurting. After I went to bed she and her husband decided they had to come up with a plan to get me to listen to her about this. Fortunately she succeeded. What did you decide WithintwoweeksIhadthesurgeryinSouth Carolina. I needed to get it done quickly to minimize nerve damage. Did you consider returning to Maine for surgery I thought about it but I couldnt even get an exploratory appointment for six weeks. I was back on my feet in one day but I couldnt paddle again until after great physi- cal therapy back in Maine with Joshua Hunt in Waterville. You dont discourage easily. Right after the surgery I consid- ered halting the expedition. But that wouldnt properly honor the grit and determination of the Safe Passage chil- dren and families. So I got my husband to bring down the car and we carried on with my prearranged speaking engage- ments down the coast. When I got to Fort Lauderdale the SV Polaris was waiting to sail me to Central America. The original plan was to drop me and my kayak off in Belize but since I couldnt paddle he took me all the way to Guatemala. The children at Safe Passage had a great celebration for me giving me flow- Vultures oversee the sorting process at the Guate- mala City garbage dump where many parents of Safe Passage students work.

I was so humbled by how engaged they were in the expedition. But from your point of view this was not the end Folks said Id accomplished my mission. Id gotten myself one way or another from Maine to Guatemala and raised awareness and money for Safe Passage. But again I couldnt give up since the children and par- ents dont give up under much more adverse conditions Also Id pledged to kayak 2500 miles for the expedition. So once recovered I carried on. You got back in the kayak I returned to Georgetown South Carolina in September 2015 and started paddling south. Once I got to Fort Lauderdale I was again tempted to quit. I could look at the Wheres Deb website and see my kayak tracks had reached my sailing track. De- spite being really tired and ready to quit for the third timeI had to just sigh and carry on. I passed the 2500-mile mark three miles from Key West and happily ended the ex- pedition when I kayaked into Key West on January 30th after 2503 miles You increased the funds you raised for Safe Passage from 175000 at the time your surgery became necessary to 425000 upon completing the Carolina-to-Key-West leg by kayak. Thats a lot of money I had a zillion speaking engagements and that contributed to much of the money raised. But Rotarians along the way who worked to raise money for a Rotary Foun- dation Global Grant for teacher education and curriculum development really helped. As did a grant from Citibank. And then a few individuals made large anonymous do- nations. It all added up. Did the Rotarians set up the big celebration hoopla when you slid into Key West That happened organically. A local radio station interviewed me the day before and all day kept reminding folks to come and meet me at the beach.

One day near Titusville Florida I was forced to land on a sliver of land at the base of a cliff. I crawled up the cliff and hauled my kay- ak up with a rope. Thanks to the Delor- me inReach Explorer satellite communi- cation device my husband followed my progress saw where I was and met me in a few minutes. On this trip my most frightening encoun- ter was with that scariest of marine mam- mals the manatee. I was almost flipped over when I got too close to a sleeping manatee who awoke with a start and went into over- drive with his huge tail as he sped away. Were you mostly all alone when you were out there Yep most days I paddled alone. On a few days the expedition had a kind of Forrest Gump quality to it with folks just showing up to kayak with me. I didnt flip over once on the entire expedi- tion much to the chagrin of my Maine kaya- king friends who had a pool on the first day I would dump. n Refresh It has never been easier to Maria Atkins D.O.

My parents watched from right here in this house. It was a scene in a horror movie flames flying up to the stars. Red sparks scattered everywhere in the wind. The house was a torch lighting up the whole cove. It was high tide so water cov- ered the causeway. No one could do a thing.

As it turned out the shop carried a little shepherd girl but no boy. Carols moth- er asked the overweight shop lady why they would carry a little shepherd girl but no lit- tle shepherd boydid that make sense The shop lady explained that the little shepherd girl was in fact Bo Peep and that there wasnt any mention of a shepherd boy in the rhyme was there And she even be- gan to recite Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep Stop that Carols mother told her and pointed up at the womans big round face Do you know what you are Mom. Youre an obnoxious overweight cow she informed the woman then turned around and hobbled straight out of the shop. Lets go Carol. Come on. Carol apologized to the shop lady. Sometimes she justshe tends to get The shop lady touched Carols arm nod- ding sympathetically I understand dear. Carol wished to be held in the shop ladys lap and rocked and told nursery rhymes. Carol are you coming All the way home in the car her mother complained bitterly. She began with the in- sulting shop lady moved on to Carols fail- ure to remain married then turned to her own life since Carols father died two years ago. On the moon was the way she felt that was how desolate as if she were wan- dering around on the moon. So she con- cluded even if they had found a little shepherd boy that wouldnt have made any real difference she would still wish that she were dead. Mother I know I know. Approaching her mothers driveway Carol slowed and was about to pull in but saw some- thing furry shimmying up the drain pipe at the side of the house. What are you doing her mother asked as Carol continued past the driveway. I justI thoughtI heard a funny noise. Funny noise whatre you talking about In the engine. I want to drive around see if I can hear it better. I dont hear any funny Shh. Was it a raccoon Carol did you just shush me A baby gorilla Dont ever shush me. Do you understand A midget in a fur coat I said do you understand I do Mother yes. Whatever it was if her mother saw it she would never go in the house again. She would move in with Carol. So Carol continued driv- ing around giving the thing plenty of time to climb back down and go away. I have to use the toilet Carol. You can use mine. No. Take me home. You can listen to your funny noise after you drop me off. But Carol turned left at the next street and began heading towards her apartment a mile away. Carol turn around. Whats wrong with using my toilet I cant relax. I need to relax. Turn around Carol. Now. Fine. Fine.

By the way her mother said after a few moments not to be critical but youve been looking awfully bedraggled lately Carol. Unless oh Lord it got through a window and was now in the house. At least try and do something with your hair. Or what was far more likely she hadnt actually seen anything. It was the two glass- es of wine shed had with her salad on top of the tranquilizers. Getyourselfanicepermwhydontyou. She was just hallucinating that was all. Merely losing her mind. You go around looking like some kind of I-dont-know-what. When they got back to her mothers sure enough the thing was gone. Carol pulled into the driveway. All right Mom. Well Arent you coming in I have to get back. What for Wellto bring the car in see about that noise. I think youre hearing things. Probably.Hearingthingsseeingthings Seeing what things Just saying. Her mother set to work getting out of the car. Call me. Carol promised. Not between seven and eight her mother reminded her. I know. That was her Matlock-rerun hour. She had a crush on wise old white- haired Andy Griffith. Carol wasnt sure if she knew he was dead and often felt like telling her. After getting out her mother spoke through the inch of open window. We should try that shop over on Forest Avenue. We might have better luck. Carol nodded. I guess we could do that. You guess Im saying we could do that. Her mother gave a parting sigh and hob- bled off towards the front door. Carol considered yelling Stop dont go in but sat there watching as she got her key from her purse and used it entered the house and closed herself in with the Thing. Carol backed out quickly and drove away. Over and over she told herself there wasnt any Thing in her mothers house.

And anyway she reasoned if there really was some Thingwhich of course there wasnt which of course was ridiculousit would kill her quickly it would be over in a moment and her mother would have her fondest wish. She took a cigarette from the pack on the dash- board lit up and felt better. But then she suddenly cursed and made a U-turn front wheel going over the curb and sped back to her mothers driveway. She got out ran to the door used her key and went in. Mom Im in the bathroom her mother sang out. What is it I thought you left. Everything all right Im a little blocked up. I shouldnt have ordered that cheese thing. It wasnt even very good. While her mother went on about the cheese thing pretty much repeating what she had told the waitress Carol went around checking every room including closets. Im sorry but Kraft American is not real cheese her mother declared from the bath- room. It blocks you up like real cheese Ill grant you that. Carol heard something moving around in the kitchen. Not to be critical her mother added but I wish you would take me someplace a little upscale for a change. Carol tiptoed towards the kitchen. If Im going to be blocked up at least let it be with actual cheese. The Thing was much taller than she had thought about her own height and badly in need of a perm. It was standing by the kitchen table eating a banana from the fruit bowl unpeeled. Are you going to kill my mother If she ever gets out of there. The toilet flushed. The Thing gave Carol a little smile mov- ing its unplucked eyebrows up and down. A minute later still going on about the cheese thing her mother entered the kitch- en. Then she stopped and stood there gaping.
