  3. This is the kind of thing and adveristing from a Maine I do not recognize and find frankly abhorant. Its like dressing up a donkey. Any one who reads and sees these photos ad journal are happy with the veneer, putting onto reality an outsiders’ gloss and fring that to me never was and I hope never will be. But of course those who have the money and power to make Maine more of a voyueur’s preserve will drive this native Mainer away. It is a shame. My cold comfort is that the so-called “lovers of Maine” will turn it into the same place they left and become disillusioned.

    Richard, what is the Maine you recognize? We may see eye to eye on more than you think, but when I wrote this three years ago, I was brining out points that others from away would recognize or connect with… When we moved to Maine in ’93, I knew practically nothing about the place… we “parachuted in” at a time when there was no worldwide web… I’m not one of the moneyed people. In fact, it was in Maine for the first time in my life that I was not only treated like, but was told I was “one of the little people” that made Maine a quaint place to vacation… the wife of a state attorney general from away told me that to my face. Anyways, Maine is an interesting and unique place, like the town I live in now. We get the same folks, who move here and want to change everything. I moved here, because I liked it the way it is/was and I didn’t fit in where I grew up. Same is true of Maine. I got tired of the people from MA or NY, who went to camp in Maine when they were kids and thought it was heaven… they were a real pain. I also saw the “Delores Claiborne” side of Maine, which was hard to take… but those are stereotypes that I reject, as well. Are you a Deer Isle Eaton?
