When a Maine real estate buyer lived out of state and whatever they did not like pushed them to move to the Northeast.
It is still hard to let go and not knee jerk react to the new surroundings in Maine. When the property buyer is used to mountains of paperwork, permits, delays in getting the simplest of things done.
It is easy to forget Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore but Maine.
It is not like that in smaller sized towns, not so restrictive but simpler living in Maine.
So the part of not locking your doors, friendly people making eye contact and with manners.
To hold doors open for you at the post office, the foodliner. To not suddenly sprout a dorsal fin and the Jaw's music starts up low and under looking for that last parking space.
Because in Maine, help youself, there are plenty to go around. No circling need, turn off the background bed of edge of your seat suspense mood music for added effect.
