from my Journal Log:
Flavor Bay will carry You away on a cushion of Air, with or without Your flair. The bacon smell is growing wings and eggs will soon be cracking. Green deep loveliness, reflections on the water, purple clouds and bright blue sky and ripples where the fishes are. We had City Bill’s farm-fresh eggs and bacon, fish and toast for Breakfast. Also We, Meredith, Emil and I started working on a new song, as I mentioned earlier, last night.
Butterflies in the bushes, Ducks on the Pond, the Bass-boat Fishing overload, of which, I am not fond. Styro-foam House on the Hill, Big-time Stars live up there still. Tomato Plants are growing tall and magic ARTs hang on the wall. Big City Folks are SO busy, with the schedules that They made, while I am on my Lake-a-Day-Cycle, I’m just chillin’, not even getting paid… A dome of land, sea and sky, the Lake-a-Day-Cycle does not imply swimming (as previously mentioned), nor does it imply only one Lake per day. At its most wonder-full vibratory nature, there is both swimming and more than one Lake. I have started the Cycle properly by jumping in three times already into Flavor Bay!
“It’s Summertime now and I’ve got that itch… I’m gonna head North again. People from away just don’t understand, it’s better in the State of Maine!’ – from “Summer in the State of Maine” by the Dynamic ARTs League.
After Krekel and I left Hallowell, where We visited the Second Street Bed and Breakfast (I have a painting hanging there over the mantle in one of the common rooms, entitled “HOONs ina Yard”),
we headed out into the Country to Cobbosseecontee Lake for a Lobster dinner and Moon-light Pontoon Boat ride with Our Friend Joey Gange out there. Cobbossee is a favorite Lake of Ours and We were super-excited. On the way Jason made a call to Scotty Perrow, a drummer and Famous Sound Man, who was gonna loan Us some equipment to do the performances with the Blue Bunny ALL-Stars. We drove wildly down backroads and found Our way at last to the Gange Camp, which is made up mainly of old road signs…
We rode around in the darkness with no lights on on Joey’s Pontoon Boat, recreating a now-famous expedition that occurred in 1998. Krekel played Guitar on Old Favorites and We ALL sang along. We stayed out there in a Horse-shoe Cove for quite a while floating, singing and drinking beers.
Since We woke up at Flavor Bay that morning, and already swam in the Sea, then visited Cobbosseecontee Lake, it was time for Us to go to Our third Lake of that particular Wednesday and also Our final stop where We would spend the Night with a Great Fellow: Dancing Bobby Watson, up from Louisville, KY, for the whole Summer on Maranacook Lake, only a few minutes drive away by motorized-vehicle.
