Fiber College, Gee’s Bend and Strung Together – Part 2 of 3, by Terri Malloy When I first saw Gee’s Bend listed as an event, I didn’t know what it referred to other than it was a quilting workshop. Little did I know what a rich and deep rooted story there was behind The Quilter’s of Gee’s Bend. *Gee’s Bend is actually a block of land in Boykin, Alabama enclosed on three sides by the Alabama River in rural Wilcox County in Alabama’s Black Belt. It was named for Joseph Gee, a large landowner from Halifax County, N.C., who settled here in 1816. Gee brought 18 African-American slaves with him and ..read more

The Belfast Harbor will explode with makers, artisans, local foods and great music on June 24 & 25, 2023.  Want to turn it into a real adventure? Paddle a kayak from the campground (we have them for rent), leave it with the Harbor Mistress and spend a few hours wandering through the colorful stalls looking for treasures that make your visit to Maine even more memorable. I see on the schedule that Anni & the Rainmakers are performing at two on Saturday. Buy yourself a homemade lemonade from the Lions Club booth and sit back…you’re in small town, absolutely authentic Maine! I ..read more

Mud Season

What’s mud but soil in a very confused state??  Confusion is the word of the hour.  It’s cold, it’s hot, it’s too muddy to walk but the garden soil is frozen.  What clothes are going to work today? The Spring chores need to be done, but everything revolves around the weather. April is when reality collides with fantasy on multiple levels. When the park is buttoned down sometime in November, it feels like we have all the time in the world to dawdle in the studio, play music with friends and leisurely plan out our organizational tasks so that the following year (right now) we’ll ..read more

This is wonderful.

The best piece of advice I heard in 2022, while working in the studio, was from the 10% Happier Podcast: Stop and recognize happy moments when you’re in the middle of them. Literally stop and say out loud, “This is a happy time.” It’s a way to ground yourself in the joyful parts of your life. I love this! How many times have I muttered myself, “grrrrr” (or worse but why share?) when something went askew? It’s easy to express frustration but I want to start expressing Joy with greater frequency. In 2023 I’m going to spend even more time saying…“This is wonderful!” and invite you all to join me ..read more

Penobscot Bay is out your door…maybe a minute or two walk by Terri Malloy My name is Terri Malloy,  I’ve been a full-time RVer and workamper for over 8 years. For those of you that don’t know what a workamper is, it’s someone that lives self contained and travels to different places trading a space to live for either volunteer hours or space plus paid hours or some combination of the two. I love my site! I move about every 6 months or so depending on the contract. I’ve workcamped at many campgrounds, state parks and various other places such as rescue ranches and theme parks throughout th ..read more
