May Sarton charts her second act in Maine in this graceful elegy about life, love, work, and growing older When May Sarton uprooted her life after fifteen years in the refurbished New Hampshire house with the garden she tended so lovingly, she relied solely on instinct. And something told her it was time to move on. Accompanied by her wild cat, Bramble, and Tamas, a Shetland shepherd puppy—the first dog she ever owned—Sarton embarked on the next chapter of her life. The house she chose by the sea in the Maine village of York is completely isolated except during the summer months. Surrounded by nothing but endless ocean, woods, and vast skies, Sarton experiences a rare sense of peace. She creates a new garden and fears that in this tranquil state, she may never write again. But in her solitude—with its occasional interruptions for trips away and visits from friends—she realizes that creativity is constantly renewing itself. This journal offers fascinating insight into a remarkable woman and the work and friendships that form the twin pillars of her life. This ebook features an extended biography of May Sarton.

The universe is filled with incredible power. Over the last century alone, combustion, electricity, and lift have completely altered the course of humanity. These and other forces have taken us to the moon and beyond. At the same time, they have laid waste to entire cities and abruptly ended millions of lives. One force among these has the ability to control them all. Ironically, it is the most powerful, yet the least understood. As with fire, this awesome power can only be controlled when you understand the basics of how it works. Like electricity, it can do things that you thought were impossible. And similar to lift, it can send you flying through the clouds to heights you never imagined. Once you learn the basics, you won’t need to freak out any more over control. Anything you want will be within reach without the use of force, deception, bribery or any other form of manipulation. If you’re not already living your dreams, it’s because something is short-circuiting your ability to harness this great power. Come with me and we’ll find out what it is. Let your journey of discovery begin NOW!
