Solitude and Splendor: Living in the Schoolhouse, is the story of how Maria Termini followed her dream of living alone in the forest. As she lived simply and close to the trees, snow, bugs and mountains, she thrived in her handy person’s special of an old, one-room schoolhouse in the rugged wilderness of western Maine. Without electricity, a phone or running water, she was able to walk back in time away from the chaotic modern world. She was spellbound by the amazing power of the forest to reveal itself to her in joy and wonder through the ever-changing drama of the seasons. Solitude and Splendor presents a vivid account of the challenges she overcame as I she sought a different way to live as an antidote to the 24/7 speeded up, multi-tasking character of today’s world. She survived the cold and a chimney fire, bonded with bats and mice, and followed her artistic inspiration during this transformative adventure in her forest home. Solitude and Splendor celebrates the richness and beauty of nature as she was so privileged to feel it. She learned that peace can come from having the time to savor everyday joys.

Maria Termini also makes collages, drawings, fiber art, mosaics, serigraphs, watercolors, music as well as her wonderful writing. You can see her art for yourself at ; Adventure, beauty, rich images, music, a search for justice and a reverence for the earth are some of the many colored threads that have woven the rich tapestry that is the weaving in progress of her life. She has followed her bliss to backpacking with twins in Europe, a solo bus trip to Central America, serendipitous carpentry jobs in Hawaii and the Virgin Islands, building houses with Habitat for Humanity in Nicaragua and Boston, helping refugees in Texas, serving in the Peace Corps in Bolivia and much more. Check out the rest of her resume at her web site. Wow. We're in for a fun ride this Wednesday. Buckle up! Let's go! Maria Termini will be our fearless guide!!
