…One of my Summer Shows
Does anyone else watch “Maine Experience” on PBS? It is a local show that highlights Maine’s past using found films, photos, and interviews with ancient people.
I’m not sure what it is about it that makes me so happy, but it does. It’s weirdly exciting to see the famous huge hotels of northern Maine, or see a piece about the last surviving covered bridges that are in use, or a segment about a fiddler man who played for a President.
Particularly I love the “Moving Image Minutes”, where they play an old film that shows how towns used to be. It’s interesting to see the prosperity of towns that are now down and out. Well, interesting and a little sad, really.
And yes, I know this is just one more checkmark on my dorkiness checklist. Soon, I hope to be a full-fledged Dork.
