The Coast Walk will be going on hiatus for about a year. Here’s why:
I produced a photo-essay for Chebacco (the annual journal of the Mount Desert Island Historical Society) last year about stained glass windows on Mount Desert Island. I photographed the glass in ten buildings, and was astonished at the quality and variety of the windows. The historical society was so enthusiastic about the project that we also created a small exhibit in the Selectmens’ Building in Somesville, which will be up through this summer. The building re-opens in June, I believe, so you’ll have a couple of months to see it.
I haven’t been able to get the project out of my head, so I’m going to buckle down and write that book. Since I only have room in my life for one obsessive, all-consuming, unpaid project, the Coast Walk will have to wait until The Stained Glass Windows of Mount Desert Island is finished.
If you are interested in following that project, I’ll post updates on my blog: http://jenniferbooher.com/wp/
