Today, I return with my family to another of my favourite places in the world. It’s a small community – a gathering of just a few houses – on the Maine coast. We’ll be there for two weeks.
It is a peaceful place, just sand, sea and sky.
The small cottage is the quintessential writer’s cottage, with a view of the sea no matter which way you look.
There is poetry at every angle, in the light, the shadows and in the open foreverness of the view.
I wrote a lot while I was there last year. It was really the start – or, rather re-start – of my writing.
And I began this blog shortly after returning home.
I look forward to sitting with my coffee, staring endlessly at the sea, walking the beach in the early morning fog, and capturing whatever lines flit across my thoughts.
It will be a perfect (if early) celebration of the Silver Leaf Journal’s anniversary.
And on that note, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for being part of this wonderful, fulfilling year!
