Example text

Languid splash of a jumping fish, mesmerizing ripples. Fragrant morning, fragrant river. A veil of coolness just barely Payne Hollow Summers + 23 holding back the heat of the day. Harlan's rowing seemed all of a piece with the tranquil surroundings-smooth, economical of effort, harmonious and symmetrical. And wondrous, because there were no pins in the oarlocks to keep the long, heavy oars from slipping and turning. Harlan strong-armed them, not wasting energy by scooping the water, but efficiently skimming just below the surface.

Friends from earlier days, friends who respected the quiet of Payne Hollow, friends who offered to help with some work, friends who came for congenial conversation or to play music-these were welcomed wholeheartedly. Anna especially enjoyed visits from her women friends. She was hungry for girl talk, Harlan said. When Madison and Hanover friends Anne Horner, Marcella Modisett, Helen Spry, and Nita Webster visited, conversation might run to birds, wildflowers, herb gardening, and news of mutual acquaintances.

Anna was offended that the man seemed to expect her and Harlan to accept instantly the breakup of his former marriage and welcome the new person who was now filling the role of wife.

Nearing (1883-1983) and his wife, Helen (1904-95), wrote books on their homesteading life in Vermont (Living the Good Life, 1954) and Maine (Continuing the Good Life, 1979). By the 1970s they were handling up to twenty-five hundred visitors a year, often dozens in a day.
