Even after all of these years, it’s still sometimes difficult for me to live in a city. It’s hard to explain why to people who are used to it, who love the noise and bustle. I am very happy with the state of my life right now, but there’s a part of me that always wishes I were out in the hush of the woods of Acadia, which is not really a hush at all but a different set of sounds.
Will Greene is the son of Bo Greene, the most excellent high school geometry teacher there has ever been. I babysat Will when he was five years old and his mother was still my geometry teacher, and we talked about black holes and rhombuses—he remains on my list of top five smartest children I’ve met. Now he is a senior in high school himself, and he created this time-lapse video of the seasons passing in Acadia. I’m keeping it bookmarked in my browser so that I can visit it whenever I need to let the city fade away around me, when I need to feel like I’m back in the woods with no one else around.
