Sargent Editor Publisher Quantum Maine W e expect nothing short of magic during a Maine summer. I was racing sundown east of Ban- gor shooting for Bar Harbor by twi- light when static scratched on my ra- dio. I fiddled with the knob. What was this By the sound of it I was entering a Stephen King paranormal zone. The local station took on an aural shimmer. Way up here in Maine clear as a childhood memory I suddenly heard WNEW New York. Count Basie was young again quite a shock. I near- ly felt my dad sitting beside me. Just another example of time and distance playing tricks on us in Vaca- tionland some parts of Maine never seem to change like in Brigadoon. The Penobscots call it mteoulin magic. Except theres science behind it this time. Both intracontinentally and intercontinentally the New York radio signal skips off the bottom of the ionosphere reflects off our curved atmo- sphere and becomes a crystal-clear miracle on summer nights in Maine. Some radio geeks call it a skywave others just dismiss it as nothing more than a global skip. Vocabulary.com de- fines a skywave as a radio wave that is reflected back to earth by the ionosphere or a commu- nications satellite permits transmission around the curve of the earths surfacean electro- magnetic wave with a wavelength between 0.5 cm to 30000 meters. My imagination slipped in to make it a skip in time as well as radio-wave propagation since Im not alone in suspecting that all timefuture present and pastmay be happening simulta- neously. As Einstein puts it The distinction between past present and future is only a stub- bornly persistent illusion. Its why I love stories Theyre as new as the very second you alter your own state traveling through them. This is our 30th anniversary Summerguide. But in so many ways it skips time and carries the sweetness of being our first. Our staff cares enormous- ly about these stories. We hope youll enjoy them as much as we do. Every second I read Im forever tasting my first steamed clam taking my first quiet paddle in a canoe setting foot on my first Maine island insert your own list of firsts flicking on that radio as I break the sound barrier and zoom to Bar Harbor. Next time I experience WNEW I hope it wont be a Yankees game. As we read we become homo legens the reading human a species apartenjoying a mediated indirect experience according to Bolvar Echeverra. Were here and were not here. We step through a magic portal to experience life as part of the very story were reading. Skip ahead to any story you like. Its okay to let your mind race as you read Summerguide 2015.

DRIVE-IN TO THE TIME MACHINE We pull into the dirt lot with the tiny wood- en ticket booth and a red neon sign above the marquee Prides Corner. Fil my forever-date pays the 20 bucks and the Subaru makes its way back to 1953. O ld-fashioned radio stands mark the in- dividual parking spots and though we are an hour early some families have already made camp. Blankets and pillows fill the beds of trucks as moms try to balance every- ones hotdogs and dads scan the area making sure theyve got the best spot. Fil and I make our way to the front row and he parks just so to get the perfect view. Like most of the few remaining drive- ins Prides Corner has maintained its orig- inal snack bar which lets be honest is ba- sically the main attraction. While we did bring snacks from home Fil and I walk over hand in hand and end up with burgers so- das and popcorn. Hollywood memorabilia lines the walls and Andrew the owner and Robert Plant look-alike greets us at the reg- ister. Fil drops his film-school background and a second later Andrew has brought out the entire Mad Max reel to show him he still screens film. Looking around Prides Corner Im not only taken back to the Happy Days but the days of sitting in the back of my own dads truck with my mom and two brothers as we stuffed our faces with Twizzlers and popcorn waitingforTheX-Filesmovietostart.Mypar- ents didnt have the money to take all three of us to the movie theaters so my brothers and I would pile in the back of the Ford Ranger and cover ourselves with the blankets while my parents paid for two adults.

A movie with Kate Winslet narrating and starring Jane Seymour Charles Shaughnessy and Dick Van Dyke has just been shot in Maine. And yes the director is composer Tim Janis. INTERVIEW BY COLIN W. SARGENT V ictoria Mansion has a secret. The Button Girl a luscious film direct- ed to period perfection by York Maine-based composer Tim Janis has fin- ished shooting here and in York and Ken- nebunkport. With Oscar-winner Kate Winslet and Jane Seymour in the mix New England really swings in this three- hanky affair set to grab a holiday audi- ence with its release in December 2015. For all the star clout of Winslet and Seymour it is the indefatigable Janisknown for his soaring sweeping musical compositions like Ocean Rose www.youtube.com watchvap8JJXpZPCgwho seems the heart and soul of this project. With his cus- tomary boundless energy he takes us be- hind the cameras. Tim Janis at left at the bottom of the stairs directs Charles Shaughnessy and Jane Seymour in a scene at Portlands Victoria Mansion. Millions of viewers will recognize Shaugnessy as Mr. Shefeld from The Nanny. S U M M E R G U I D E 2 0 1 5 6 3 Now Thats aWrap THE ARTS 64 P O R T L A N D MONTHLY MAGAZINE Whats the elevator pitch T he Button Girl is a new uplifting family musical. The film narrat- ed by Kate Winslet features Dick Van Dyke Jane Seymour and Charles Shaughnessy and introduces 11-year-old Alivia Clark the Button Girl and 15-year- old Devlin Stark. The story takes place in a fictional mill town in New England in the early 1900s and follows the story of a child named Annabelle. From a young age An- nabelles mother teaches her to believe in angels and magic. After the sudden death of her parents Annabelle is left alone and bro- ken hearted but the appearance of a myste- rious angel leads her story to a triumphant and inspiring ending. Can you describe some of the key locations and how they fit into the film It was a very nice thing to be able to film lo- cally here in Maine. Some of the films piv- otal scenes were shot at Saint Anns in Ken- nebunkport and the Victoria Mansion in Portland. Since the story takes place in the early 1900s I felt lucky to find locations here in Maine that really speak to the beau- ty of that era. One of the ending scenes takes place during a Christmas Eve service which was shot at Saint Anns. The beautiful stone construction and Tiffany stained-glass win- dows added so much authenticity and char- acter to the sceneLocal set designer Cin- dy Hamilton and her team from Americana Workshop had the church dressed with Christmas decorations and Christmas trees snow covering the ground and a horse and carriage outside as well as about fifty extras filling the church in period costumes. We managed to transform the setting so it felt like you had stepped back in time. Both Jane Seymour and Charles Shaughnessy filmed at Saint Anns Church and at The Victoria Mansion. The Victoria Mansion became the setting for the home of the affluent family played by Seymour and Shaughnessy. The dcor and elegance of the Victoria Mansion has a timeless feel to it with the elaborate in- teriors of the house. For a filmmaker the Victoria Mansion was a dream but we had to make sure we stayed focused on the stor- yline when it became tempting to grab shots from so many of the gorgeous interiors. Did any of the locations inspire acting changes When filming one of the song and dance numbers with Dick Van Dyke in Los Ange- les at the Disney Golden Oak Ranch we had planned to film the song with the young girl Alivia Clark and Dick Van Dyke sitting on a park bench however upon seeing the brown- stone section of the backlot we decided to havethemreallymoveanddancethroughthe street incorporating more of the setting into thescene.Ithinkthisaddedalotmoreenergy and excitement to the song.

Ive produced five national PBS specials as well and over 100 individual market PBS specials in a program I created called Cel- ebrate America. This made me very inter- ested in all aspects of filming including the technical side and working with film equip- ment and cameras. As a director its im- portant to learn everything from technical skills to the creative aspect of storytelling. It translates to how you capture a shot and then how it will be brought to the next stage of editing. So when directing Im also think- ing about what will be needed through the editing process as well. Through this Ive discovered I love trying to tell a story. Thats my passion when it comes to film. How important is Kate Winslet as narrator to help the viewers believe in the movie This story is based off a childrens Christmas story I wrote a few years ago called Anna- belle so it originally had a fairytale feel to it and the voice of the narrator brought this out even more which I feel helps bring view- ers into the story. Did Maine help create a universal geography that makes the story line more convincing Absolutely.

Additionally we found a local Ken- nebunk border collie Bobbie. Bobbies own- erdog trainer George Quinlin helped us tremendously in integrating her into the film as a natural character. We also worked with cinematographer Zack Richard from York and Steve Pulos who filmed-behind- the-scenes footageMade in Maine really applies to this film and Id like to continue working on other productions here O ne key location we needed for the story was a Victorian-looking street with storefronts that included a toy store and a bakery. We looked at a lot of lo- cations but we werent finding exactly what we needed for the period so we ended up building the set right here in Maine. Set de- signer Cindy Hamilton with her Amer- icana Workshop in Kennebunk was an amazing resource. Her can-do ingenuity pulled everything together bringing in so many antique materials and propsfrom doors windows and floors to an old vintage toy collection bakery store items and much morethat kept us authentic to the time. We also worked very closely with Eldredge Lumber in York Maine who supplied loca- tion and materials for the set.

I also work closely with Jane Seymour and her Open Hearts Foundation whose philosophy of transforming personal ad- versity into an opportunity to serve others is something very meaningful to me. Her Open Heart philosophy is a universal sym- bol of giving and receiving love which is a very similar message to what runs through- out the film.

I actually wrote sev- en of my CDs therethese were sold on QVC for many years. For me the connection to the ocean and the view of the Nubble Light is incredible and has provided such a peace- ful and tranquil spot for me to write and create music. Its a wonderful source of in- spiration and I still return there for that. How did your keyboard background help you relate to Sir Paul McCartney and Billy Joel When I created my CD Music of Hope which was a fundraising CD for the Ameri- can Cancer Society Billy Joel sent me his pi- ano recording of his song Elegy The Great Peconic the goal being to record it with the London Symphony Orchestra. So it was my job to perfectly transcribe the song for the next phase the orchestration. I went back and forth on the phone a few times with him to get the song just right so in this case my piano background was very useful. I also spent two days at Abbey Road with Sir Paul McCartney recording his classical piece Nova which I really loved. Since when did The Admiral Farragut Academy become a springboard for entertainers viz. you and Lorenzo Lamas. I have good memories of AFA. I thought I wanted to go into the Navy but while I was at AFA I started writing music and from that moment I knew music was what I wanted to do. When I went to AFA I left in August and did not come home till Thanksgiving then Christmas to the summer and the regiment did not give me much free time so I think the discipline and focus helped me a lot as a musician where you have to be the driving force both creatively and in the business.

Ed Beem essayist for OMAAs Chad- bourn catalog considers the painters most significant achievement pedagogical. Chad- bourn Beem concludes taught Maine art to speak with a French accent. Chadbourn had many students in Maine but considering his circle included sophisticated artists like Beverly Hallam Bernard Langlais John Laurent and Lau- rence Sisson Beems point has deep-root- ed ramifications. CALIFORNIA COOL Y et Chadbourn was a very popular painter not because of his teaching or his ideas but because his paint- ings are so visually appealing. Moreover Chadbourns work looks more to Bay Area painting than Parisparticu- larly to Richard Diebenkorn whom Chad- bourn knew from his California days. A notably strong work from Painting in Maine features a view of Congress Street rising straight up the left side of the canvas depicting Munjoy Hill. The structure direct- ly echoes Diebenkorns 1963 Landcape 1 at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The real lesson from Diebenkorn how- ever involves balancing the 3-D spatial logic of the scene with the 2-D compositional de- sign so we can simultaneously enjoy the sur- face of the painting and the scene it repre- sents. The luscious facture of the paint looks to the New York school while the color and structure follow a French approach most as- sociated with Matisse. Chadbourns View of Portland nota- bly separates from local painters like Rob- ert Solotaire in terms of color. Chadbourns work feels fluid loose and effervescent with a frosting-like palette of creamy pinks Above South Bristol. Fun fact The record auction sale price for a Chadbourn is 10800 in 2009 it was another painting of South Bristol. Chadbourns belief that technique should be the servant of your vision not the other way round is seen in Five Islands above.

BUILDING BLOCKS OF BRILLIANCE While we generally talk about art in terms of style and technique what Chadbourn brings to the ta- ble is a method. C hadbourn didnt paint by the seat of his pants He con- structed his paintings. He sketched on site and then worked from photos to design a paintings structure. His method resembled an architectural process Chadbourn would build the form of his struc- ture up from a framedrawing to create positive and negative spaces with comprehensive spatial logic. He designed pathways for our eyes just as an architect considers egress and traffic flow of people through a room. Chadbourn did not compose a paint- ing for static formal balance He de- signed it to address several dynamic systems simultaneously. Chadbourns color selections re- call Impressionism. He separated his warm and cool colors and avoided blending on the canvas. To control the value of his colors lighten them and render them opaque Chadbourn ad- opted the Impressionist technique of adding white to most pigments. How- View of Stonington 1986. Mussels 1983.

VALUE JUDGMENTS T he most important aspect of Chad- bourns method however was his division of color into three sets of values light middle-tone and dark. When he sketchedtypically with a black pen Chadbourn avoided fussy details while he mapped out these three values. Referring to his drawings and support photos he would shift the massings of the forms until he had created a satisfying structure. With his ordered palette Chadbourn could execute well-designed paintings with a confidently loose brush and still achieve the overall coherence associated with light- oriented painters. This method is why Chadbourns work was simultaneously underpinned with re- fined rigor and executed with jaunty bravado. Considering his sophistication and life- long association with education it is no sur- prise that Chadbourns two how-to-paint books were well received. They are still great guides for artists if you dont already know how paintings are made these books could change how you look at art. In Maine as around the country we are witnessing the blossoming of concept-gen- erated art that uses ideas to drive processa crossroads of conceptualism and craftsman- ship. Consequently we find ourselves look- ing more to the artists whose sophistication and abilities bridged sense and sensibility. Painting in Maine is a very appealing reminder that Alfred Chadbourn was one of those artists.

Read their brochures adventure team building leadership. Nonsense. Well not entirely. Wind ships can teach those things sure but that is not what draws us to these magnificent vessels. A rope course can teach teamwork. A sailing ship touches something much deeper. James L. Nelson is a native Mainer a former professional tall ship sailor and the author of more than twenty works of maritime ction and nonction. He currently lives in Harpswell with his wife and former shipmate Lisa and their four children. When men first settled the land civilization was born. But ships were the things that carried humans beyond civilization. The sailing ship was the first and only means to push the limits of the watery horizon. For most of history people never ventured more than a dozen miles from their homes save for those few who went down to the sea in ships. A ship is not built for beauty and yet it is one of mans most beautiful creations. Beau- tiful in part because ships take us to those places we have never been. This is as true in 2015 as it has been for the past three thousand years and nowhere has that truth been more a part of life than in the State of Maine. This summer inspired by Lafayettes flagship LHermiones cruise up the Maine coast for a two-day reception in Castine on July 15 and 16 Mainers and visitors alike can re- new that ancient bond when nine sailing ships including four of the massive Class A vessels visit Portland on July 18 to 20 for the Iberdrola USA Tall Ships Portland Festi- val 2015. And to make certain that all mariners armchair and otherwise are able to ful- ly appreciate this chance to reconnect with the sea Portland Magazine offers the follow- ing guide to the ships that will make their landfalls here.

In addition to the Iberdrola USA Tall Ships Portland 2015 festival from July 18 to20 weve got LHermione recreating her original transatlantic voyage which will stop at Castine. She sails like a bird was the young Marquis de Lafayettes description of the French Concorde-class frigate LHermione. But what other reasons could there be why LHermione is belle of the ball Well how about the fact that her forebear launched 28 April 1779 ferried the Marquis de Lafay- ette to rendezvous with Washington where the talented young soldier could play a cru- cial role in the Yorktown campaign that se- cured the independence of the United States and led to the Treaty of Paris in 1783. Per- haps the strongest argument though why LHermione might be the best of the tall Shesailslikeabird.

That makes her not a replica but a fourth member of an originally three-ship class started in 1777 with Concorde. Her sis- ter ships Concorde Courageuse and Herm- ione were all lost in conflict with the same Royal Navy that tried to snuff American in- dependence along with the French Revo- lution and very nearly succeeded at both. LHermione was built at the same shipyard to the original plans of the Concorde at Ro- chefort. Concorde and Courageuse went on to have stellar careers in Britains Royal Navy after their captures while the first Hermione was wrecked on the rocks at Croisic in 1793 returning from patrol. So you could say that LHermione is the best tall ship because shes just like her sister ship which saved the United States and is a member of a class of ships with commissioning dates that range from 1778 to 2012 Which still doesnt account for the in- credible frenzy shes created on both sides of the Atlantic. Backed by the Hennessey Cognac company LHermiones construc- tion took 17 years with a price tag of 32 million according to the BBC and Busi- ness Insider. She was exactingly created an international coterie of arti- sans using exclusively 18th- Yes Hermione dear Even a drop-dead gorgeous international celeb- rity on tour has to follow the U.S. Customs rules. The word is she was resting comfortably June 1 to 4 off the coast of Norfolk Virginia after her ex- hausting transatlantic crossing and was person- ally attended to by the U.S. Navy Arleigh-Burke Class guided-missile destroyer Mitscher above. She declared an undisclosed amount of cognac and champagne among her baggage. Turns out shes quite the party doll. But LHermione protests its all in the name of history. As for her little recent run-in with customs when the ship was questioned about the barrels of cognac aboard The Friends of Hermione-Lafay- ette in America Inc. explained that 500 litres of Hennessey 250 Collectors Blendthe good stuff 600 a bottle cognac were load- ed in March in Rochefort to make the trip to commemorate 250 years of Hennessey a sponsor of LHermiones construction and voyage noting that barrels of co- gnac were aboard on Lafeyettes original journey.

W ell New England wouldnt have gotten off the ground without her and other ships dont like her. The gundalow was the ship the best design settled on to go up and down Maines rivers and between coastal towns. The gundalows were used to pick up all the consumer goods from the trade ships at the big ports and ferried tim- ber and bricks and other products from the mills back down. Theres no way you could be from coastal New England without having some direct connection in your family to these vessels They were the cargo trucks of the 19th century.

As I look on Brandon Ten- ney shucks my selections at magician speed and they arrive on a plate with cock- tail sauce horseradish and a tart shallot mignonette. The lemon wedge is always at 12 oclock. Then you go down your check- list and the oysters are arranged clockwise in that order. First up a Glidden Point from Damar- iscotta. The shell appears just shy of three inches long the meat is plump salty juicy just perfect. On to a Weskeag from South Thomaston. Its similar mildly meaty still excellent. A Dodge Cove another from Damariscotta is bigger less briny and may- be a tiny bit more tender with a sweet fin- ish as it says on the checklist. If you eat a lot of Damariscottas you can just about tell how far up the river they come from says Tenney. The ones near the ocean are salty while the ones way up the river are really mild. Tenney shucks a Flying Point from Free- portits comparatively huge maybe four inches. Quite a mouthful but silkily tender mildy saltyan irresistible feast. These must be popular. Actually people gravitate toward the small ones. Sometimes we get really tiny sweet ones and people go crazy.

THE LAY OF THE LAND We source a lot of our oysters from the Damariscotta River says Chris Mill- er shellfish manager at Portlands Browne Trading Market. There are certainly oys- ter farms elsewhere in Maine but Damar- iscotta is the gold coast with that cold cold brackish water. Theyre my favorite oysters. Miller explains that there are farmed and wild oysters in Maine. Farmers lease spe- cific aquatic acreage from the state while wild harvesters forage by diving and other means. Both must be licensed and both are regulated by the state. The most common wild oyster here is the Belon says Miller. Its more precise- ly known as the European Flat oyster since trueBelonslikeChampagneandMainelob- sters are geographically specific. Belons ter- roir is off the Brittany coast in France. Maine Belons established a moderate wild popula- tion after scientists in Boothbay transplant- ed stock from France in the 1950s. The fla- vors very different says Miller. Its often favorably described as metallic. S ome Belons are also farmed in Maine. Belons are grown mixed in and among the Glidden Points on my leas- es says Barbara Scully at Glidden Point Oyster Company in Edgecomb. Belons are different in every way most notably they have a shorter shelf life of less than a week and a bold metallic finish on the palate. The Eastern oyster crassostrea vir- ginica and the ostrea edu- lis Belon are two dif- ferent species and they do not cross breed. MORE SHOPPING AROUND Nick Branchina Browne Tradings director of mar- keting expands on the topic of farmed vs. wild Maine oysters. Since theyre all growing nat- urally theres not much difference. Theres no feed the way there is at a fish farm. The farmed ones have been seeded in spe- cific places and the non-farmed are randomly located. I think farmed actu- ally have the advantage because then you know exactly where theyre from. Mean- ing you know theyre coming from clean wa- ter. Branchina is exacting about this. We seek oysters we know are good and ones wanted by our clients. We have oys- ters grown for us in Damariscotta Browne Pointsthat are really good. Theres seasonality involved. But we can generally always have Maine and a few Massachusetts oysters available. And something from the West Coast. At Harbor Fish Market on Custom House Wharf theres even more variety farmed Damariscottas from Glidden Point Dodge Cove and Pemaquids Massachu- setts oysters farmed in Katama Bay and Westport two Prince Edward Island PEI farms Irish Point and Daisy Bay and some fascinatingly dainty wild Damariscottas brought in by divers.

And they dont get lost in other flavors like sauces. FARM FRESH There are five long-standing operations growing oysters in the Damariscotta and a handful of smaller project growers says Barbara Scully whos owned Glidden Point Oyster Company for more than 20 years. The growing techniques handling meth- ods and quality can be highly variable at times between the different growers. The term Damariscotta oyster is generic. Glid- den Points Pemaquids Wiley Points and Dodge Cove are all Damariscottas but theyre not all alike. Were one of the oldest oyster farms in Maine. I no longer harvest in the months of January February or March. The icy conditions are super harsh on people boats the equipment and the oysters. Its also nice to not have to worry about hav- ing a boat in the water for winter storms. The harvest volume is somewhat variable depending on weather survival and mar- ket demand. This week I shipped over two tons of oysters. Once you start looking around you re- alize just how many Maine oysters are in transit every day both to supply the res- taurants here and to ship out of state to the gourmet world at large where Maine oys- ters are in demand. Although tiny compared to Maines lob- ster fishery8 to 9 million in oyster sales in 2012 compared to 340 million in lobster according to affordableacadia.comMaine oysters are still big business. SAMPLING EVERYWHERE O ysters are so popular and such fea- tured stars on crushed ice displays around town that it pays to seek out deals. That means happy hour. All our oysters are 3 apiece says Lau- ra Argitif at Old Port Sea Grill. But theyre 2 each at happy hour every day from 3 to 6 p.m. And on Sundays all day theyre six for 10. We have them all labeled so you can select exactly which type you want. We try to keep to Maine oysters with maybe some from Massachusetts or PEI. We dont like to go beyond the cold-water oysters. Hot Suppa the gourmet diner in the Longfellow Square neighborhood famous- ly has 1 oysters during 4 to 6 p.m. week- night happy hours. On a recent visit almost every seat was taken at 530 and every par- ty had a platter of oysters on the table. The only oysters on hand that night were from Wescott Cove in Connecticut they were good-sized saline and tasty but not quite as delicate as Mainers. Not the raw bar type No problem. Caiolas on Pine Street has an enduring hit with a Caesar salad ringed with fried oys- ters. On Forest Avenue Po Boys Pickles is known for their Cajun fried oyster sand- wiches and Susans Fish-n-Chips has fried oysters by the pint quart or full dinner.

Morrill-based Ocean Farm Technol- ogies OFT has found a more sustainable way to produce a tastier fish with the Aqua- pod a patented containment system for ma- rine aquacultureor in other words a giant floating fish farm. Stephen Page CEO created the Aquapod in 2005 as an answer to what he saw as huge problems with the conventional fish-farm- ing industry. Marine aquaculture is limit- ed by its location in shallow inland waters. Conflicts arise all the timemostly the shar- ing of resource space with recreational ve- hicles private property fishing boats et cetera. The solution for expansion and sus- tainability of aquaculture is moving it out to the open ocean. My goal was to design plat- forms robust enough to survive the open ocean says Page.

The panels can be ma- nipulated as needed for daily operations in- cluding feeding cleaning and harvesting. The Aquapod is specially designed to keep out predators and operate fully submerged during foul weather. A dditional advantages of the Aqua- pod compared to conventional fish farming include less pollution and better fish health. The life-cycle cost of an Aquapod can range from 30000 to 200000. Sounds like a lot but a fish farm can make a half-million dollars just in one harvest says Page. Aquapods are currently bobbing in loca- tions across the globe including South Ko- rea Indonesia Panama Hawaii and Mex- ico where OFT is developing advanced automation systems. The focus is on auto- mating operational activities such as feed- ing and cleaning. Our goal is to reduce the need for human intervention divers as much as possible for reasons of both safety and costs. We are also taking steps to devel- op and implement underwater cameras and robotic devices. The idea is that I can sit here in Maine monitoring what is going on in Mexico and operating the system remotely. When asked about the Maine location Page cites a number of advantages including its pool of talented people skilled in aquaculture. What I also appreciate about doing business in Maine is the people who come and work for me they are the incredibly productive workers and great problem-solvers. Maine has yet to move into open ocean aquaculture. It has been disappointing. But within five years we will have a robust turnkey platform and will be able to demonstrate the economic effi- ciency. Thats what everyone wants to see. And taste of course. HODGDON YACHTS Combining tradition with technology One wouldnt expect a 200-year-old five- generationfamilycompanytobeahigh-tech leader in its industry. And yet that is exactly what Hodgdon Yachts of East Boothbay has worked hard to become. Even tradition- al technology enjoys a rich and storied his- tory in Maine given the boat-building in- dustry. Some builders choose to stick with the traditional. We are not one of those com- panies says Ed Rob- erts director of sales and marketing. Hodgdon has been making boats since 1816 and enjoys a worldwide reputation that it has achieved in part by being an early adopter of cutting-edge technologies in boat design and materials e.g. pre-preg carbon fiber which is typically used in advanced aerospace aviation applications. In 2008 Hodgdon made headlines when the U.S. Navy decided to test the 83-foot Mako. Mako was a joint program with the University of Maine. The idea was to build a boat similar to a Navy boat but with com- Floating Radio SEAL Sled BREAKTHROUGHS 154 P O R T L A N D MONTHLY MAGAZINE posites instead of aluminium and then com- pare the shock mitigation. The aluminium boats used by SEALs and Special Ops are hard on the crew and can present safety is- sues yet the Navy has been reluctant to con- sider other materials. Our purpose was to demonstrate the usefulness of composites says Roberts. Despite the excitement around the Mako defense is not a growing part of Hodgdon. Mako is certainly part of our story but our focus going forward is plea- sure craftsracing performance cruising and heirloom vessels. Enter Comanche Hodgdons most re- cent technological won- der. This racing craft was conceived by Jim Clark co- founder of Netscape with the goalofbuildingthefastestmono- hull on Earth. Comanche was built from pre-preg carbon fiber using a specific method requiring a 120-foot oven the larg- est marine oven in the U.S. Only six yards in the world are capable of doing a boat like the Comanche because of the required in- frastructure ability to apply the technology and employee skills. Even if super yachts are perhaps a bit out of the price range of most Mainers the im- pressive quote is 1 million a meter there are benefits to having such an industry lo- cated in the state. There is a saturation of jobs in the industry and an increasing need for skilled people. Maine should be more aware of the potential economic benefits of visiting super yachts. Economics aside Hodgdons creations are a sight to behold.

VEMI LABS Igniting imaginations People are horrible at imagining things.

VEMI an acronym for Virtual Environment and Mul- timodal Interaction is one of the few labo- ratories in the countryand the only lab in Maineto research and study applications of virtual reality and augmented reality tech- nologies with a multimodal focus. Um say what No worries its not as complicated as it sounds. A quick primer Virtual reality is a made-up world think Google Glass aug- mented reality projects virtual information onto real life imagery e.g. via a smartphone or tablet informational text can be super- imposed onto buildings as a person passes them and multimodal refers to the senses such as touch and sound. VEMI was created in 2008 to serve as a research resource. The idea is how we use technology to understand how we interact with our environment. For example nav- igation. How do you get from one place to another and how can technology be used to better navigate a physical space says Giu- dice. Audio and tactile cues give the same information to the brain as visual cues in many instances but the brain just wants the informationit doesnt care how it gets it. And this is where the multimodal aspect of our research comes into play. T he real-world applications of the research being done atVEMIareimpres- sively broad.

Through head-mounted displays people could see ex- actly how it would look and sound from any point on the island even from a window in their house. With augmented reality we brought them right inside the scenario. They were then able to make a decision based on real data Giudice continues. The impact was powerful changing perceptions of the proj- ect in a positive direction. They became more open to the idea and less concerned about how it would affect tourism. Another application assists the blind with seeing visual graphics and navigat- ing unknown physical spaces. Giudice says The blind have text access through speech devices or braille but they are not able to access graphical information. We created a vibro-audio interface that gives them this ability. For example the data line running across an x-y axis graph will vibrate so that the person can follow it. Tactile represen- tation can also be made of an indoor space. The blind have seeing-eye dogs but dogs cannot read arrows and signs. So this is an- other navigation tool. Coming from disciplines as diverse as engineering science philosophy and the- ater students working in the lab also bene- fit learning vital technology skills to take to future jobs. These skilled students feed into Maines labor market which is good for the state Giudice says.

At the Howes Waterboro-based compa- ny we build vehicles you cannot find or buy anywhere in the world because either the technology does not exist or it is far too ex- pensive. Those vehicles include the robot- ic i.e. unmanned Swat-bot for police use Thermite firefighting Terramec plow and bulldozer and the Ripsaw military opera- tions. The Ripsaw is the worlds fastest tank and was named Invention of the Year in 2009 by Popular Science. Another vehicle the Ripchair is an off- road vehicle that does not require a handi- capped person to get in and out of his or her wheelchair allowing for greater freedom. When a client test-drives the Ripchair he is crying with joy his mother is crying these people have been in accidents or on the battleground or experienced a debilitat- ing disease and some have not been out of their houses for 20 years says Geoff Howe. The vehicle retails for around 39000 for the computerized version. B orn in Augusta the Howes are proud Mainers who wanted to stay in and stay true to the state even if it costs a little more to do so. Since 2006 we have brought over 10 million into the state. We spend the money in Maine pur- chasing from local companies when possi- ble. People out in California and Colorado where there are frequent wildfires ask us Why Maine Yes it would make sense for us to be in the middle of the country from a shipping standpoint but we are committed to staying here. As a Maine native Howe believes growing up in Maine develops character traits that are typical of great technology innovators.

Maybe its the twang of a harmonica or maybe the dolce lull of a flute the sing of a violin or the whir of a helicopters wings. This is not Bob Dylans harmonicathis is the XHarp. Musician and composer-turned-inven- tor Wayne from Maine as his young- er fans call him has taken the humble harmonica to the x-treme with a serious high-tech makeover. The plastic sandwich-sized XHarp which has no reedsuses pressure sensors that respond to the players breath creat- ing notes and controlling volume. A MIDI musical instrument digital interface chip allows the player to choose from over 100 sounds. The system is analogous to an elec- tronic keyboard. The advantage however is freedom of the fingers. A musician can play the sounds of an electric keyboard while si- multaneously playing the guitar or even the drums Read says. Another advantage of the XHarp is its full range of tuning possibilities. Unlike the traditional harmonica which is tuned to one key typically a 7-note diatonic can be tuned to any type of scale such as chromat- ic 12-note yo five-note Japanese Persian seven-note Middle Eastern and Phrygian seven-note Flamenco. It is very multi- functional in a cultural sense. It really opens up possibilities for the player. While the current version the V24 is still in the beta stage Read is already dreaming up other applications. For ex- ample a paraplegic person could use our mouthpiece to write with the holes repre- senting alphabetic letters and phrases in- stead of musical notes. A very limited number of V24s may be on the market as early as June of this year and are set to retail around 1000. Hear Wayne and his XHarp every Sunday 5 to 8 p.m. at Rons Landing in Hampton Beach.

When the novel made Hamilton House famous the world came callingnot that people on the order of Gov. Langdon and John Hancock hadnt already visited. Ar- ticles about the house and garden were published in House Beautiful magazine Crampton ventures without a gratuitous twinkle. In 1929. SARAH ORNE JEWETT HOUSE 1774 In the center of South Berwick with- in pleasant walking distance of the Ham- ilton House is Sarah Orne Jewetts own house built for John Haggins in 1774 a prize among Historic New England homes. Asked if the term Boston Marriage origi- nated with the couple of Sarah Orne Jewett and Annie Fields Crampton does not elab- orate with her No. B ut shes more forthcoming about the tragic carriage accident of 1902 that Sarah Orne Jewett suffered. It brings to mind Stephen Kings horrible ac- cident. Did she have a creative dead zone af- ter this brush with death It was her birth- day Crampton says. She was thrown from the carriage and suffered a spinal injury just as The Tory Lover was vaulting to star- dom. She didnt publish a book after that date but continued to write essays articles and letters. As for traditions one that it took two men exactly 100 days to build the staircase Crampton wont bite. I have never heard this story. Even though it lives forever in Wikipedia. Weve heard it put forward that the com- paratively quiet exterior though absolutely Millwright Joseph Sayward 1684-1741 purchased this waterfront house new in 1719. It subsequently belonged to his son Jonathan a coaster and trader and erce Loyalist in the years before the Revolutionary War. The house remained in the family and in 1901 was purchased by Elizabeth Cheever Wheeler a direct de- scendent of the Tory Jonathan who kept it as her familys summer home. Wheelers heirs deeded the house to Historic New England in 1977 and it became the Say- ward-Wheeler House museum. Sarah Orne Jewett House South Berwick According to the Old Berwick Historical Society The colorful interior is much as the Jewetts left it with the authors desk still set at the top of the stairs overlook- ing the center of town. Sarah died here in 1909.

A fellow in back of the crowd during the tour asks about ce- lebrity stop-ins. Rudyard Kipling was a pal. Sarah had a very ex- tensive network of friends that included many of the literary and other cultural figures of the day including Annie Fields Henry James Alfred Tennyson Celia Thaxter Sarah Wyman Whitman and Emma Coleman. Well Annie was more than just a stop. NICKELS-SORTWELL HOUSE 1807 There were two suspicious fires at the Nickels-Sortwell House in 1877 when it was being run as a hotel under the name the Belle Haven says Peggy Konitzky Wiscasset site manager for His- toric New England. Although both were deemed suspicious no charges were ever brought. Charred timbers remain in the attic as testament to the fires that were probably caused by unauthor- ized smoking. T he Belle Haven went through five different owners in the 1870s but thrived as a summer holiday establish- mentsometimes with a unique twist.

In 2002 he connected with small-screen viewers as forensic scientist Julian Beck in Law Or- der Special Victims Unit a role he played into 2007. In 2002 he was nominated for a Tony for his role as Motel the Tailor in the Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof star- ring Alfred Molina. In 2004 his play Almost Maine premiered at Portland Stage to great acclaim but that was just the beginning. In 2014 the Washington Post reported Almost Maine had surpassed A Midsummer Nights Dream as the most-produced high school play in North America its now been trans- lated into 20 languages.

Nick No Was the Bible written from the heart Nigel Well I would hope so How do you respond as 1 an actor and 2 a play- wright to Something Rotten I dont audition for a lot of musicals. Most- ly because manymostnew musicals suffer from book troubles. The book of a musical is the spoken partthe story part. The part that links the songs. And new musicals often suf- fer fromunclearly told stories. When I first read Something Rotten I knew I wanted to be a part of itas an actor because it has such a strong book even in its early incarnations. As a playwrightwell I learned a ton from our book writers Karey Kirkpatrick hes written and directed several movies most notably the animated feature Chick- en Run and John OFarrell a best-selling British humorist. They are smart gener- ous guys. Something Rotten is a comedy. It is an entertainment. And Karey and John wrote and worked to make sure that what they were writing was funny and entertain- ing. They put the audience firstand were constantly thinking about how to improve their experience.

It was a show-stopping ballad in the second act but it no longer fit in the show as the book was being rewritten. The song was cut for the good of the wholeand for the good of the storyand for the good of the audiences experience. And Something Rotten is much better for it. How does Shakespearean humoror humor about Shakespearecome closest to Maine humor Its low. And the best Maine humor is low. So many academics celebrate Shakespeares low humor and dismiss contemporary low humor and I think they all need to take a good hard look at how incongruous that is.

Who knew it was Boston Strong ew Englanders deported Acadi- ans from their homes. History tells us that the British deported thousands of Acadians who had settled and lived in Acadie for more than 150 years ar- riving in North America before the Pil- grims did. That is true. However less than 20 years later many vof those same British mon- sters were calling themselves Americans. Other than the regular British troops the deporters were from the Boston area. BY DON LEVESQUE econstructing At the time of the expulstions he Acadians were British subjects too albeit British sub- jects who spoke French and were Catholic. Therein lay one problem Britain was once again at war with France. The British governors of Acadie wanted their French- speaking subjects to sign a document prom- ising not to take up arms against the British in the conflict. The Acadians wanted to re- main neutral. This was unacceptable to the British authorities. However the Acadians finally agreed to sign a loyalty oath to the British crown.

The Acadians eventually refused. So the British resolved to remove them from Acadie at gunpoint force them onto ships and send them off to different parts of the world. Those extremely fertile Aca- dian lands were then given to good Eng- lish-speaking Protestants from the Thir- teen Colonies. Charles Lawrence the governor of Nova Scotia ordered the deportation of the Acadi- ans. This presented another problem There werent enough regular British soldiers nor enough British ships in North America to car- ry out the deportation.

Next came the sincerest form of flattery copycats. Today you cant find a bad french fry in this town. From Nosh to Petite Jacqueline to Sillys there are spectacular fries and sweet potato fries everywhere. French fry consciousness-raising led to competitive poutine. Duckfats are graced with Silvery Moon Creamery cheese curds duck gravy and fresh chives. In Westbrook the Frog Turtle Pubs are Franco-authentic and irresistable. At Blue Rooster the house-made tater-tots may be ordered as Tot-tine with chicken gravy and curds. The Little Tap House turns pou- tine into brunch topped with braised beef curds and gravyplus two eggs any style. Boones may have the edge though with its sensuous lobster poutine. PLATE SIZE REVOLUTION In 1999 Local 188 opened on State Street where Pai Men Miyake is today as a casu- al neighborhood cafeart gallery. Excellent affordable Spanish-inflected peasant food was served on mismatched yard-sale plates most of them undersized salad and side- vegetable dishes. Portlanders flocked in to share 6 servings of mussels or sizzling gar- lic shrimp and 4 sides of pinto beans over six-ounce juice glasses of tempranillo. It was so La Bohme.

Tapas and other single-item snacks that arent quite traditional appetizers are now standard everywhere. You can nibble on 4 kale chips and 6 lobster Rangoons at Liq- uid Riot on Commercial Street where small plates are the only plates and 8 fried honey- glazed cauliflower at Sur Lie. Theres 7 roast- ed bone marrow at Central Provisions. Bone marrow was huge here a few years ago. You could hardly dine out without spotting alarming dinosaur bones split and roasted being picked and scraped by adven- turous diners. Marrows still around but in less epic presentations. I introduced bone marrow when we first opened PJ says Pe- tite Jacquelines chef de cuisine Frederic El- iot. Id worked at Prune in NYC before that and we had it there all the time. Classic French is making a big comeback. FROM THE WINE-DARK SEA H ave you noticed how mainstream octopus is nowadays Its ironic considering the ubiquitousness of calamari that up until a few years ago no one who wasnt Greek apparently realized octopus was edible. Find it these days on the menu at Emelitsa as Oktopothi tis skaras grilled and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and lemon. Its on the new East Ender menu grilled with fennel fingerlings pre- served-lemon yogurt and salsa verde for 13. At Eventide theres octopus salad with arugula and smoked pork jus. At Street Company you can find grilled octopus with organic potato chorizo and local kelp sauce. At Ebb Flow on Commercial Street which is devoted to all things Mediterra- nean a whole tentacle is charred and driz- zled with oil for 18. Ebb Flow sometimes has cuttlefish an even more uptown ceph- alopod which is daintier and more tender than squid or octopus. Cuttlefish turned up in Portland years ago on Fore Street Restau- rants ever-changing appetizer menu when its available its a wood-grilled treat. Octopus has exploded says Nick Branchina director of marketing at Browne Trading seafood market in Portland. Right now were getting them from Spain. They are whole and frozen in the six pound range. Restaurants buy them but people buy them to cook at home too. RUSTIC FANCY Octopus is part of a larger trend in Port- land restaurants these days. Call it gourmet Mediterranean peasant. Consider the humble salt cod. A dried staple for hundreds of years in cuisines from New England Yankee and Maritime Cana- da to Africa the Caribbean and the Medi- terranean seas cod is now a star in the Old Port in various creamy reconstitutions. Tiqa braises the cod in cream whips it with pota- to into Spanish bacalao drizzles it with olive oil and a sprinkle of sumac and garnishes it with a few crispy rings of fried calamari. Just delicious on the house pitas. Central Provisions has Gallic brandade croquettes made from house salted and dried hake a more sustainable fish than cod whipped until fluffy rolled into wal- nut-sized balls coated in crumbs and fried until crisp outside. Its everything you want in a small-plate peasant treat. At Piccolo on Middle Street the whipped baccala is served with chicken cracklings and an egg. At Browne Trading on Commercial Street they salt and dry cod in-house and sell it in whole filets which weigh two to four pounds each. Thats a lot of baccala. Harbor Fish Market carries the classic little one-pound wooden boxes of Canadi- an salt cod for 9.99. They also carry one- pound pieces of filet from Stonington that have already been salted dried reconstitut- ed vacuum-packed and frozenready to simmer and puree. SPREAD IT ON C hickpeas arent just for supermarket hummus anymore. Hummus itself has moved way uptown notably to 845 Forest Avenue where the Iraqi Tandoor Bread and Restaurant set up shop five years ago. Owner Audai Nasers mild creamy hummus is subtle nuanced and great on the tender pita bread he bakes all day every day. Tandoor brings both to the Monument Square farmers market on Wednesdays. Tiqas meze platter includes hummus and falafel along with baba ganoush. Its Re- vithiacrushed organic green chickpeas with olive oil and lemonat Ebb Flow. Eventide serves crisp batons of chickpea fries at Eventide while Lolita entices with Moroccan chick peas with kale and pre- served lemon as a vegetarian course. We combine chickpeas with tomato and Moroccan spices and layer it in a cast- iron cassole with kale says Lolitas chef Guy Hernandez. Then we stick it in the firethe fire being Lolitas unique wood-fueled asador grill with adjustable racks. I like to eat it with a forkand a piece of bread in my other hand. Middle Eastern spices are part of a Spice- Route-East trend within the Mediterranean craze. Sumac zaatar harissa and Aleppo pepper are turning up at the new Mediter- ranean spots like Ebb Flow and Tiqa. The Hyatts imminent new restaurant Evo will apparently mine this same vein too. On Portland Street Isa serves a delicious first course of tender grilled octopus tenta- cle segments dressed in lemony green chi- michurri sauce on a bed of roasted chick- peasa classy peasant trifecta. LITTLE FADS EVERYWHERE F urther evidence of the rustic craze can be found in the proliferation of house-made local sausages. The Rosemont markets and The Farm Stand in South Portland are serious about butchery and they make serious sausageschorizo smoked Italian breakfast and other exot- ic spice mixtures. Tiqa serves spicy Portu- guese chicken merguez sausages find your lamb merguez sliders at Isa. At Lolita Guy Hernandez makes his asador-ready ver- sion with pork garlic and fennel and we serve them with roasted peppers. Vignola Cinque Terres lamb and duck sausages are served as a small plate with fennel mustard. Piccolo serves the houses dense and spicy Italian sausages with eggs at brunch. Rabbits getting star treatment too. Emelitsa mixes the braised meat with spin- ach feta and roasted tomato baking the creation in phyllo pastry. At Isa its also braised and served boneless with beans and an olive salsa or over garganelli pasta. Not all food trends are equally welcome. For some of us a little kimchee goes a long way.

Wheres your dream lobster roll INTERVIEWS BY CLAIRE Z. CRAMER W hen it comes to summer food in Maine everyones an epi- cure. Lobster-shack loyalties run deep. Ice-cream-cone flavors are non- negotiable with family tradition and sen- timentality involved. Our relaxed survey of assorted Maine notables and celebrities reveals what they see as perfect summer beach treatsand where to get them. THE SUMMER KINGS You have to figure anyone whos run for statewide of- fice a few times has eaten ev- erywhere. So we checked with our independent senator and former governor Angus King. But like most of us it turns out his favorites arent far from where he lives Brunswick. Sen. Kings reply Its a toss-up between Five Islands Lobster Co. in Georgetown which serves a delicious lobster roll and Fat Boy Drive In in Brunswick which has some of the best burgers and fries around. This is not to be confused with flip- floppingits a tough choice Im a Maine celebrity says USM music professor and composer Daniel Sonenberg whose baseball opera The Summer King premiered last summer at Merrill Auditori um to rave reviews. Thats so exciting The thing I look for- ward to every summer is ice cream at the Ocean Park Soda Fountain in Ocean Park southern end of Old Orchard Beach. Their Mint Explosion is the best mint ice cream Ive ever hadfilled with Junior Mints and other good- ies but somehow the whole is still greater than the sum of its parts. Short season over therethey close on La- bor Daygotta make it out there three or four times I scream you scream we all stop for Reds Ice Cream. Its a summer tradition. A lobster roll at Two Lights comes with a view to forever. Sen.

The prices may seem steep but you get what you pay for and theres no extra for the view. Fair warning The local seagulls constitute an elite squad- ron of aerial food snatchers capable of dis- appearing that pricey lobster roll faster than Penn and Teller on summer vacation Sample likes his cones too. On a warm summer night I hop in my old road- ster and drive to Waldos in Falmouth for ice cream. The staff is friendly. The ice creams great and the lines are significant- ly shorter than some of the hipper joints in and around P-town. Dont forget to drop a buck in the col- lege fund tip jar. One of those cute girls behind the counter just might end up being your oncol- ogist someday. HUNGRY WRITERS Ask a writer to talk about her favorite beach cuisine and you might be told a tasty tale. Ill be delighted says award-winning novelist Kate Christensen whose Blue Plate Special a food memoir was the runaway hit beach book among last summers paper- backs. Sometimes when were headed for an afternoon at the beach we stop in at a deli in Cape Elizabeth called the Ocean House Market for lobster salads a chilled bottle of rose and a bag of sea salt and black pepper potato chips. Its our favorite beach picnic. S ounds like page one of a perfect sum- mer getaway. Heres another. Whenever we have summer guests we offer them an authentic Maine treat says Portland novelist Any Bitter Thing and memoirist When We Were The Kennedys Monica Wood whose acclaimed first play Papermaker played to full houses at Portland Stage this spring.

Pack it up get out on the boat and enjoy the Portland sky- line from the water. Sometimes you have to threaten them with man overboard to get them to drink the Moxie.

For one thing the menu lists more than 80 dishes. Prices are modest to moderate not typical in a popular Maine coastal town. The atmosphere and staff are friendly and fun. You climb to the top floor to sit under red patio umbrellas and enjoy views of vil- lage and harbor or slip inside to duck the fog or wind. Either way youre in a Vacationland movie set. Hungry and drawn to the Dock Purged Maine Steamers for 15 a pound soaked in crates in the clean waters of the Damariscotta River to release grit and sand Im convinced instead to share the scallops with blackberry gastrique 11. Luscious and large three of the most suc- culent bivalves in my recent memory are grilled to perfection. The slightly tart blackberry concoction works wonderful- ly topped by candied ginger and a crispy fried wonton set each. Brilliant. Shellfish reigns here. The region is known for oysters and what many connoisseurs con- sider to be the best Glidden Point are served here with tequila lime mignonette 3.50 each or baked with crabmeat and sauteed leeks crowned with cheddar cheese.

W ho dares utter the name of the pirate of Pirates Cove Rock- efellers excluded it might be Captain William Kidd 1645-1701 known to have sailed in and around Bar Harbor. Or could it be Sir Samuel Argall 1580-1620 who by direction from London attacked and sacked Saint-Saveur the French Jesu- it colony on what is now called Mount Des- ert Island The chestnut is Argall confiscat- ed a box of gold from the first rusticators and buried it among the pink cliffs of what is now Acadia National Park.

It was sited perfectly appar- ently for 1700s living since from its location you could see clearly out to the harbor when the trading schooners came in to barter for products for other things they needed. At that time the fields were clear and not as wooded as they are now. The property also included nutritious salt-hay for their cows. I magine a glossy called 1700s Living. Today crisp as an apple and listed for 2.9M spacious eight-room Pirates Cove Farm on 808 and 901 Indian Point Road is move-in-ready complete with immaculate touches to complement its historic bones including an ancient field- stone foundation. Twenty-first century adornments listed here include a master suite with a spacious bathroom and steam shower an expansive patio with an inte- grated outdoor kitchen hot tub wine cel- lar butlers pantry wet bar vegetable gar- den and fine detail all around. The entertaining spaces have wow fac- tor including the classic dining room with a white hand-carved mantel flanked by glass cupboards amid hand-carved woodpan- eled walls in Colonial green. Original hand- adzed timbers support the bright white ceiling. The enormous salon with marshy views has hand-carved wainscoting in white rising from original pumpkin pine floors. French doors take visitors outside for sweeping vistas. Like everything else here the great wooden doors some in warm var- nish are functional and period-perfect with matching period hardware. The ceiling beams carry through to the modern kitch- en with granite-topped island and breakfast area facing another original fireplace with paneling. These timbers haves nothing to shiver about. The denlibrary has carved paneling and still another high Federal fireplace. In all there are three bedrooms four full baths walk-in-closet multi-zone and radiant heat and security system amid oceanic gardens and 3.06 lush acres fragrant with salt spray.

Shed checked the tidal time- table. Three-thirty p.m. would be the optimum hour the sands at their broadest expanse. It would give us ninety minutes of lightenough time to walk to the north- ern end of the beach and get back before the gates closed. ButitsearlyDecemberIwrotebackinmy email reply to her invitation trying to sound breezy. Will we even last ninety minutes on the beach The forecast for tomorrow is some- where south of thirty with a nasty wind. I am certain you will be able to brave it she wrote back. You are I know robust. Terse and to the point. So much Sarahs style. She had a backbone made of tung- sten. An ability to weather so much that life threw in her direction. A forthright- ness that I found admirable and simultane- ously a formidable defense. And my word how defended she was. Until we were in bed. When all the practiced reserve the patrician breeding the refined sense of distance and discernment vanished amidst the heat of betrayal. Hers not mine. She was the mar- ried woman. She was a full professor with a husband who was a lawyer of pronounced seniority in Portland and with whom she lived in a splendid house in Cape Eliza- beth commuting up to Brunswick when she taught at the college there on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Shed married latemid-for- tiesand with certain Jane Austen-esque thoughts about security and social standing. Spencer was 12 years her senior divorced intelligent and thoughtful extensively con- nected within Maine and Boston where he also had an office and a pied-a-terre in one of those venerable apartment buildings in Back Bay. And he had all the right academic cre- dentials Bowdoin Harvard Law elitist de- tails that always meant a great deal to Sarah. I am a true meritocrat she told me dur- ing an early lunch when we were beginning to dance around each other.

A Chicago boy with abundant street-smart Semitic attitudes tenured and resolutely sin- gle at an exceedingly prestigious collegeyet one geographically divorced from the urban rhythms I so preferred. Just as she discerned that my ongoing bachelorhood well into my late thirties was a hint of sadness with- in. Just as she knew that every second week- end I would head down to Manhattan and spend three full days with an investment banker whom Id met through friends who was a cultured workaholic divorced child- less driven by work driven by her need not to look too closely at the loneliness of her own life. She was very happy to share her bed a few nights a month with a man who also embraced her passion for theatre and opera and chamber music and jazz and who asked nothing of her. We were well suited. I was as emotionally detached as she. We met certain essential needs. We knew that if it ended tomorrow there would be an initial ache but little residual pain. All couples have their own subtextual rules usually negoti- ated with unspoken compliance. Ours was This is a civilized way of telling ourselves we werent alone in the worldeven though we both knew better. With Sarah it was love. I knew that by the second time wed slept together. But I stayed quiet about such sentiments until she her- self made a direct pronouncement one night in the small coastal cottage I call home in Harpswell. I was startled to hear such emo- tional explicitness from a woman whose precision of language always eschewed the effusive. She was an historian of immense Anglophile leanings. I taught the rough- and-tumble corner of American litera- ture Whitman the Beats Dreiser and the Naturalists and wrote imagist poetry with more than a whiff of Verlaine and Rimbaud underscoring it. She was almost a decade my senior. She was as desperate for passionate engagement as I was. She told me I was the man of her life. As I admitted I had always been searching for someone like her my en- tire adult life. Especially as I had in the past stumbled from one intimate misjudgment to the next.

Her reply was silence. Sarah began to spend two nights a week at my cottage. When informed by her that she would be elsewhere on Monday and Wednesday nights her husband now crowding 70 said very little except As long as you dont leave me I will ask no questions. Sarah said no more about it. We were the height of cir- cumspection. No one at the collegenot even my closet friend on the faculty a pro- fessor of musicwas ever let in on the secret. The rare times we crossed paths on campus we were a model of collegial formality. We never went out together to a restaurant in Brunswick or Bath. We organized a few dis- creet weekends away in Boston. We spent one week during the summer holidays to- gether in Paris. And when after 18 extraor- dinary months together I raised the subject of a true life together Sarah quietly ended it all a few days later. Telling me I want to leave him. I wont leave him. And I will not explain why. Because then we will be in the middle of a negotiationand one where the sense of inevitable loss will be too huge. I did something uncharacteristic. I plead- ed. Though I remained rigorously cir- cumspect in public I wrote several long impassioned emails trying to reason her into seeing that ours was something so re- markable so rare so HerreplyIagreewitheverythingyousay but will not engage further with this conversa- tion. The pain will dissipate. In time. Silence. I fell into a depressed chasm where I met all my professional responsibil- ities and requirements and where I contin- ued to abide by the absolute vow of silence I made to Sarah at the outset of our involve- ment. The semester ended. I scoured the in- ternet and found a cheap rental on the Greek island of Kastellorizospending six qui- et sunstruck weeks there working on a new collection of poems drifting into a casual thing with a French woman in her late thir- ties named Nathalie. She taught in a lyce and was hiding out from a bad love affair coupled with a mid-career crisis. Right before she re- turned to Paris she said something that still haunts me today Do you think your capaci- ty for loss has kept you alone Thats not fair I shot back.

I wasnt in a place to defend my corner. And she was leaving on the next plane out of this small piece of Greek rock. So I said nothing except Guilty as charged. I returned to Maine the college and the discovery that Sarah had taken a one- term leave of absence. All very last-min- ute. All very hush-hush. Word travels fast in the internecine world of the academy. Her husband it was said had fallen ill. He was receiving cancer treatment at Mass. Gener- al in Boston The prognosis was poor. I de- bated sending her an email saying I heard about Spencers illness and wanted her to know I was here for her. I hesitated thinking Id sound opportunistic. I fretted regularly about not contacting her but also felt shed interpret it as He is so pleased that Spencer is dying. I did my work at the college. I stayed engaged with my students. I sent off the col- lection of poems under the title The Pend- ing Loss. My editor approved. One of them was rapidly accepted by The New Yorker. I kept my head down. Sarah clouded my days and rattled my nights. And then out of no- where came the offer to meet on Popham Beach. I wrote back making light of the coldness of the day. And she reminded me that robustness was something she prized. I drove down to Popham under light snow. I parked. And got out of my elderly Saab. And waited in the cold for almost an hour. I went down to the beach and scoured all possible horizons. No sighting of Sarah. When dark- ness fell I got into my car and drove back to Harpswell. I wrote a simple two-line mes- sage to the woman who said she wanted to see me again after casting me adrift. But be- ing stood up by her wasnt mere disappoint- ment. It was something far more primal. Still I held all the rekindled agony in check as I typed I was there. Where were you The weekend began that night. I drank too much bourbon alone at home. I awoke with an anvil chorus ringing in my head. And to the following email written at 311 that morning. Sorry. Couldnt face it you. I want to thank you for our exceptional time together for showing me something that I thought beyond my reach. Toujours. I picked up the phone. I broke a rule. I called her cell. No answer.

Id driv- en by it once late at night in the aftermath of her ending it all. Id resisted the tempta- tion back then of the melodramatic flourish leaning on her doorbell and telling her she had to run off with me into the night. But to- day now I was going to dodge the tentative. Now I was going to declare confront insist. Now I was going to go for broke. But when I reached the huge Victo- rian pile that was her residence I blink- ed with disbelief. For there in front of the house were two cop cars and an ambu- lance. I braked I got out. I started walking at great speed toward the house through a small crowd of onlookers. A police officer stopped me as I neared the path leading to the front door. Police investigation in progress he said. You cant go in. Im a family friend I lied. Whats happened If youre really a friend youll know soon enough. And then he tapped me on the shoulder and pointed me back toward the half-dozen or so people intrigued by all this emergency- service activity. Any idea whats going on I asked a man around fifty in a black track suit halt- ing in the midst of his morning run. He said The woman of the house killed herself last night.

And what are you doing here I didnt answer his question. Instead I broke into a run. Away down the hill from all this. Toward that promontory of grass and rock upon which a lighthouse sat the same lighthouse around which Longfellow walked on an obsessional quotidian basis. I kept running until mid-life and grief forced me to stop.

I leaned against the lighthouse wall. I looked out on the pulsating chop of the wa- ter. I blinked but felt no tears. Just the en- croaching echo of sorrow at its most raw.

Until the light- house door opened and a man came out. He had a mariners face and a cigarette between his teeth awaiting ignition. He studied the man before him motionless in the snow. You OK he asked. No I replied. You need help I need But I couldnt finish the sentence. Be- cause the answer yet again eluded me.
