   For many years I have felt myself drawn to the arts and beyond.  In the summer, Downeast Maine

abounds with opportunities to engage in a myriad of artistic activities that keep the creative sparks

alive.  In the winter however, it can often leave much to be desired.  During this time I am able to refuel
