It was an honor and a privilege to share the experience of the Deer Isle Archipelago with this group of artists. It is a place I have been to before and will visit again, but I will never see that Island in quite the same way. It has new mythologies and newly exposed ancient histories. Though not without its challenges, the week was a lovely one and I am truly thankful for everyone’s hard work in keeping each other safe, laughing and motivated.
