It's no secret that I love Maine. Since I was a kid, it has been one of those places that feels just right. In my dreams I live there in a house with a wood burning stove and a garden full of kale, warm boots by the back door and a cozy studio with windows looking out onto the ocean. Teaching at Haystack sealed the deal for me; Maine is my favorite state. Last fall, when I was at Haystack for New Works, my friend Crystal and I stopped at Liberty Tool on the way back. A perennial favorite at Haystack, and a popular discussion topic at the dinner tables, I couldn't wait to see for myself. It's one of those places that far exceeded its reputation. I don't use most of the stuff that is contained in this three story treasure trove of a house, but I sure do love to look at it. So, imagine my delight to find this video last night; a sweet portrait of this magical place. Enjoy
