Maine meeting rekindles romance 51 years later


Portland Press Herald/Bill Nemitz/Maine Meeting Brings Romance After 51 Years

"His name is Jim Snodgrass. He's 79, has lived most of his adult life in Southern California and, until last week, had never laid eyes on Maine.

Her name is Dodie Schmidgall. She's 70, has spent the last 35 years living in midcoast Maine and last laid eyes on Jim ... what was it, 51 years ago?

Theirs is a story about loneliness, about loss and about that modern-day miracle called the Internet.

But mostly it's a story about hope..."
You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.
Franz Kafka

Be not simply good. Be good for something.
