More > Esquimo song, Proverbs, Thomas Cole, Egon Schiele, Rabindranath Tagore, Ecclesiastes, and Robert Frost. "When I was a child everything fascinated me: water running over a rock, the layers of peeling paint, a fallen leaf, the sharpness of a blade of grass. These things had the power to mesmerize me. My themes might be different now, but still I will live on the edge of my seat: fascination vitally matters. The state of Maine is a fascinating place. The intricacies of color abound everywhere. And it is this beauty that teases the truth out of the air, and seduces an indifferent cosmos into caring. This is my Ode to Maine and to the heartwarming views I found there." —Minerva Bloom< Less
