About Me

My name is Melanie, and I live in the beautiful and curious state of Maine, USA.  I am a backwoods writer and storyteller, and I am the keeper of the woods and streams in my area.  I chronicle daily the happenings of this most unusual place.  I do this with my trusty camera, an eye for seeing the unusual, and poetic license.  Some of the strangest things happen here--beautiful things and magical things.  There are no limits to what the eye can see after the mind has been prepared.

Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope you'll visit often and participate when the mood strikes.  There is still some beauty and wilderness left in this world, and I hope you will find it here along with peace and playful fun.
