The New Endeavor

The New Endeavor

This is a new chapter in The Endeavor, and I hope to make it exciting, educational, and eye-opening. For you to share in, and maybe even experience… by traveling…whether “from away”…or your very backyard. With words and pictures.
Yes, the transition from alone on the Island to here is an adjustment, no matter how good it is on the other side.
But the last 6 weeks have opened up a whole new world for me.
Beyond the enchanted fairyland of an island, it was the wharfs and Cutler, the Fishermen and their Families, the supermarket, drug store, two hardware stores, and Bella Terra, where Terri sold me fresh eggs.
Now this world has opened up. And I want to share it with you.
Christmas decorations in town…like walking onto a movie set, over Bad Little Falls. But my time on Little River, could not have happened without Tim Harrison and Kathleen Finnegan. Many others too, but they made it work.
Blueberry barrens…scarlet red and peppered with steely grey boulders, forests and Foresters, Clammers, Wrinklers and Tippers. Woodsmen, urchin Divers, Draggers, Shrimpers, people who truly live off the Grid, Truckers, Tankers, Pickers, Artists and Artisans, coyotes and wild turkeys, goats and cows, and very importantly…Farmers.
In many ways, how some foods get on your table.
In short, I want to share with you The Bold Coast.
The stretch of Down East Maine that runs from Cherryfield to Eastport. The most northeastern coast of the United States.
The poorest County in Maine…and the richest.

I have been blessed to now be employed by Axiom Technologies and Susan Corbett, a company that is dedicated to last mile delivery of internet connectivity, IT, web/social media/marketing, and building the infrastructure of small businesses in Maine. I have been welcomed into many groups and organizations, including the 250th Anniversary of Machias, the development of the Bold Coast Scenic Byway, and a project to build out a 3,000 square foot space for artists and artisans, courtesy of Susan.

It is an exciting Endeavor. You can follow it on, which will soon have it’s own site, but is now working with

I have included snaps from the “Blessing Of The Fleet” and fireworks in Jonesport, blueberry barrens on route 1, and MooLivia, a precious cow that lives across the street from me at the Hatchknoll Farm, which also does incredibly great cheese and other products under GardenSide Dairy. More on them later.
I hope you will follow, share, visit, and help, if asked, if you can.
Prayers for my Dad…


The Light shines. Be Bold. Good Enuf.
