Do you have a goal that hangs out there on the horizon, tempting you, but always just a little out of reach? Perhaps there is a bit of fear wrapped up in the goal. You say, “I can’t” when you really can, but just haven’t – yet. As with any big project, we can break … Read More

Hike to the alewives

May 25, 2018Blog, Exploration, Hike

Post by Alicia Heyburn Is it still called a hike if we are not climbing a mountain? I like hiking, whether along a river or up a mountain, but Wednesday’s Alewife Hike was particularly appealing because it was long and secluded (although a bit buggy), while only minutes from Maine’s largest urban area – very convenient for … Read More

This short post was written by LAC member Ann T. who is a surfer of both North American coasts and of many (maybe not many, but at least more than a few, I think) other countries as well.

Honeybee Heroes

September 11, 2017Journal Entry

Hi all: You may know that I have a thing for honey bees. I’m mostly enamored with them and sometimes I’m really pissed off at them. But I’m always in awe of them. Did you know that a hive of bees must fly 55,000 miles to produce a pound of honey and that one bee colony can produce 60 to 100 pounds of honey per year (I … Read More
