Taylor Photography

June 23rd, 2-3 PM
Albert Church Brown Memorial Library

Mike Taylor / Taylor Photography

Taylor Photography is a freelance imaging studio based in a 19th century farmhouse in central Maine, owned and operated by Mike and Sonia Taylor. Mike has been a landscape and studio photographer for over 20 combined years.

Observing and photographing the features of the night sky is an awe-inspiring experience that so few people ever get to enjoy. The atmosphere of the night, the sights and sounds, are so very contrary from normal daytime hours that it is literally a different world - a radical world of diffused light, excessive shadows and noises that you will simply never see or hear when the sun is up.

These existential awakenings will spark your inner child to marvel at the world again. There is so much to see, so much to hear, so much to enjoy during the dark hours of each day - the Moon, the stars, the Milky Way, the occasional meteor, and the spectacular Northern Lights displays.

Free, open to the public, refreshments will be served.

An Evening of Poetry with English Poet William Ayot

TUESDAY, AUGUST 28 at 7:00 P.M.

“The Second Question:
Soul and Compassion in a Fractured World”

an evening of enjoyable and accessible poetry 
with award-winning English poet


Arthurian myth tells of Sir Parsival, who lost his way in life but rediscovered his compassion, and in so doing, found the Holy Grail. In a world of graceless conflict and deepening division, we too can lose touch with “our better angels.”

This entertaining and hopeful evening of poetry and conversation sees English poet William Ayot return to China Village to chart Sir Parsival’s inner journey from youthful numbness and naivety to empathy, understanding and kindness.

If you are a leader, a businessperson, an artist, a carer, a parent or a therapist – a person in recovery, or seeking wholeness in your life – if you are downright depressed or simply yearning for a kinder world, this is an evening you won’t want to miss.
