Finnish Hobby Horse Dressage

Dear Friends: A Season with Faith and Ritual

Here’s our December Room With a View column from Down East Magazine.

It’s not especially seasonal, but I don’t think that faith, or any of what Philip writes about in this one, ever really goes fully out of season.

By Glen Birbeck I am not myself immune to the urge to jump off the merry go round, the 24/7 news cycle. To turn away from that megaphone's constant blast of war and rumor of war and plague and political drama. I also avoid the celeb gossip which flows from our media in...

235 YEARS OF HERITAGE ON Camden’s MEGUNTICOOK RIVER.

235 YEARS OF HERITAGE ON Camden’s MEGUNTICOOK RIVER.

The Megunticook River has been an important part of Camden for hundreds of years. It has made the town successful by historically providing power for many industries as well as providing amazing recreational areas, waterfalls and dams along its 142 foot drop to the sea culminating into a spectacular pair of falls plunging into the ocean right beside Camden Harbor Park.

The Megunticook River and falls are still supporting the town by making Camden an amazing destination as a unique place to live or visit. The river and falls are also a living museum of Camden’s history, its people over hundreds of years and their struggles to survive and develop the unique town we have today.

Unfortunately this irreplaceable treasure is currently in peril! We cannot let it be torn apart for an ethnic cleansing by scores of excavators and dump trucks, where all we have left are little metal plaques and a few YouTube videos.

Rising Water Levels

Rising Water Levels

Standing at the toilet early one recent morning was a little startling. It’s not usually. I’m customarily quite at ease. Anticipating the great relief I am accustomed to experiencing at this time each day I was taken aback briefly and my effort stalled when I realized the water level in the appliance’s basin was advancing toward me at an alarming rate.
