Time goes to a place where the four winds are free
To meet and play in the tree tops and dance with the full moon.
Listen closely for the faint familiar music you hear…
The trees are whispering their island dreams into the night wind.

Painting of Lookout Point – Harpswell, Maine
Painting and photo of a delightful island at Lookout Point, on the west side of Harpswell. Part of its magic is its tight cluster of Spruce trees. The other part of its magic is that for half of the day, the tide is out and you can walk to and around the island. The other half of the day the tide sweeps up Middle Bay and returns this tiny kingdom to island status.
There is a parking lot where you can park your car, enjoy a picnic lunch, and look out to the island. Time it for low tide and you can have your lunch on the island!
On our coast, there must be a thousand small islands with classic spruce trees like the one depicted on our Island Dreams pendant.

My son and I visited a lobsterman and his wife for a weekend out on Criehaven Island. Criehaven is Maine’s outermost inhabited island. The island is covered with spruce trees. I remember late one afternoon hiking the length of the island through spruce forests to the very western tip of Criehaven where a small wooden sign at the end of the island said “Land’s end”…spruce trees all the way down the crest of the island to the rock cliff edges.
Most Maine islands are spruce clad. Spruce must be salt spray tolerant because a short distance inland on the main land many other tree varieties begin to show. Nature selects what grows best for the land, soil, wind and rain. Nature has chosen spruce for Maine’s coast and islands.
My youngest daughter, Victoria, has decided to become a jeweler. One of her choice pieces is the Island Dreams necklace: A spruce tree on a small Maine island hand-pierced in silver with a 14K yellow gold harvest moon rising. I’m very proud of Victoria and quite delighted with her first piece. -RHP
