Stress is a natural part of life. However, there are different kinds of stress. I spent a lot of time thinking about this when Carl and I were in the wilds of northern Maine for the last week. All of the stress we experienced was external and physical. There were long paddles in the kayak, swarms of mosquitos, wet food, and barking dogs. Still, we slept peacefully, with no undue mental burdens.
An amazing weekend foraging with Tom Seymour at the Deer Isle Hostel in Maine. We had no idea what to expect when we signed up for the group tour. Then, I found out we were going to be spending the day with one of my favorite authors, Tom Seymour. Tom has written many books about foraging and fishing on the East Coast and in Maine. Finally, after years of trying to figure things out on my own, I finally had a real expert to guide and teach me.
Hiked the 2.4 mile Cliff Trail in Harpswell. Signs of fairies everywhere! So fun.
