It’s been a while since a night off, so let’s take one. I’m still on the road, but back home, traps are coming up as winter comes into view.... [Photo by Buddy Poland.]
We wish you a good night's rest, Heather! I've decided I'm giving copies of your book to most of the folks on my Christmas list. Getting them to read your book will be a great way to prod them into action in 2024!
Heather, you are remarkable!
You deserve more than one night off a week.
You put your heart and soul into every letter you write! I have learned so much about politics, history and life from Letters From An American.
All I want for Christmas is a country/world so peaceful and SANE that Heather can take off two whole days and nights.
Enjoy the rest, and thank you again for reporting of the moving speech by Senator Schumer. It revealed even a person of his status feels some sense of racisim in America. I myself feel closer to Senator Schumer now.
Good call. I’m exhausted watching all your interviews and politic chats. 😝 Where on earth do you get your energy?!
Love to you and Buddy. Always great to see his and your photos.....I just got your book from Amazon in India! 😻 I LOVE IT!
Agree with Kathleen, be safe. Love Buddy’s calming photo, as usual.
I can recall chartering a ketch or yawl out of NE Harbor, trolling the winds and waves of Casco or Pennobscott Bays, putting in to small town harbors for the night, and cooking up the chicken lobsters we had earlier bought for $1/apiece from lobstermen returning to harbor from a day hauling traps.
So much has changed since those lazy Summer days cruising the deep Maine waters and its rocky shores, but the same watery aesthetic with its coastal traditions yet remain to attract weekend sailors and other land-bound “down East” flotsam.
Well deserved time for a little R & R and self care. Books for Christmas - I like that idea Linda. Night all. Tomorrow is a new day - 3 weeks till Christmas
Thanks, Buddy, for another picture that shares the Maine atmosphere that very few non-natives ever get to see. Heather, thank you for helping us to see, and understand the import of, current politics and the way history has gotten us to this point. Sweet dreams to both of you.
Have a restful sleep.
A little R 'n R is good for all of us. Thanks to you, Heather, and Buddy and Peter!
Rest well and sweet dreams, HCR.
Sleep well in your well- deserved night off. And please take good care of yourself. You have maintained our sanity and centeredness in the world for several years. Blessings wished for you and your family.

Lord knows you deserve it, and I am sure you need it. Rest well, Heather
