I firmly believe travel is a requirement to straighten this world out --- getting out and digging up common ground with others teaches that we are rather similar with no need to quarrel.

"Whenever someone asks me what I think he should do with his life, I say, First, leave home. Get out there, where if you care to listen, you will find many other people dreaming of making connections and changing the world, just like you. The only mistake is in thinking you will make an important difference in the lives of the people you are among. The profound difference will be in you."

.....Paul Theroux

I lived here ten years and hiked extensively (did the Knife Edge twice and been down every trail in Acadia except for a half dozen). Still serve as Treasurer for conservation land trust here (Friends of Merrymeeting Bay), so I get back at least once every year. Got married on Monhegan Island!
