If you want to lie on the beach, do not go to Maine. But if you like a rocky coast (and cold water), old inns and white clapboard houses, and the best lobster you've ever tasted, get thee to Maine. Virginia may be for lovers, but Maine is for hikers, bikers, boaters, kayakers, explorers, antiquers, photographers, history buffs, lighthouse aficionados, and eaters.

Our minds don't absorb things immediately. They say it takes 10 exposures to a new word before it becomes part of our vocabulary. Most of us don't learn things the first time we hear or see them. I've known this all along. Sometimes, this cushions us from life's blows. For example, the sudden and unexpected death of someone close to us can take months to become a reality. We wake up each morning thinking the person is still alive, only to remember with a jolt that the person is no longer with us. For a few seconds, we expect to hear that person's voice in the next room; we think we can't go on a vacation because that person is not home. This only lasts for a second or two; our memories jar us into the present, and we remember. Still, it takes a while before we no longer expect to see that person.

In the archives of the Norwalk High School Library there is a book titled "Principles of Football," written in 1922 by John W. Heisman, the head coach at the University of Pennsylvania. Does this name sound familiar? Yes, he is the same Coach Heisman for whom the Heisman Trophy is named. What the real story in this is not the book and author, but the fact that the book was given to the High School Library by Mrs. Heisman, who signed the inscription in the cover as E. Maora Heisman, Class of '88. A quick check of the NHS alumni directory shows that E. May Ora Cole was graduated in 1888, and one can come to the conclusion that the famous John W. Heisman was married to a Norwalk girl!
