Green Diva Lisa and Her Traveling Boots: Part 4 – Maine

0 4

Next stop Maine. After a lovely visit in CT with my 5th grade steady, where I didn’t need my new boots because we went sailing – ahhhhhh – I decide to get a quick visit in with my future daughter-in-law before she headed back to Austin, TX.  Mel grew up in Kennedbunkport, ME and you can see her on the cover of last month’s Maine Magazine. She’s a cutie as well as a talented photographer and good cook.

 

 

I have to admit that most of my time in Maine I was barefoot, sneakered or flip flopped. I started each day with a run along the beach. The first morning I parked at the Nonantum, a lovely resort right along the water with wonderful food in addition to the great digs.  I ran north along the coast past the Bush compound. I would have tweeted about it but my cell phone didn’t work in that vicinity, humm, I wonder why?

Mel took me to her favorite spot (I promised I wouldn’t tell where it was so it could remain private and charming). I don’t usually choose the higher traffic tourist areas, but Kennebunkport really is lovely. It is the quintessential New England coastal town — once a busy port, now mostly tourism. There is, of course, an active fishing industry, including the infamous Maine Lobster trade.  Mel always sees to it that we celebrate with a traditional lobster dinner. Double yum.

 

 

 

There is so much to do in the area. On the last evening we had a spectacular meal at the Tides Beach Club Inn dinner. We sat on the front porch as long as we could before a big storm rolled in whebn we dashed inside.  The next morning, I went back to run along the sandy beach there. It was perfect for barefoot running on the firm sand at low tide and oh so very beautiful. It was hard to leave, but alas I wanted one more visit with Melbefore heading to Shokan, NY, my next stop.

But before I left, I did get a chance to put on my Patagonia boots from our eco friendly friends at Planetshoes.com and do a little climbing. I am such a lucky girl.

Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
