The Very First Post of a New Blog!

CIRCUS FRIENDS FROM MONTREAL PRACTICING
Circus Friends From Montreal
I had a fantastic time this summer up in Maine in July and August working to get "Eureka" up and running.  In August, I got together with circus friends, yoga teachers, directors, touring artists, photographers, video makers, and many other friends and artists who stopped by to check out the finished space.  As expected, the weather in Northern New England was unbelievably nice.  We had some amazing sessions, parties, feasts, and awesome adventures around Maine.

Now I'm back on tour for a couple of months in Europe but have time to work on the marketing to get ready for next year.  A web site is definitely the first step...  (www.eurekaretreat.com)  I really want to get the word out there about this wonderful project in the backwoods of Maine that I've been working on for the past 13 years!

Yes, it's called "The Eureka Retreat."

So... yes, I have finally decided on a name for the retreat.  So far, feedback has been great.  It was difficult to find a good available domain name that also worked as a title for the space.  I hope the new branding creates something which is not too narrow and yet draws interesting people and projects to the facility.

The new website is a bit of a skeleton right now, but I'm working every day on getting more pages up and don't mind feedback.

  1. Great idea, Michael! So when I`ll come back to Maine for a retreat, I will check out your place! Try to get listed in the international list for artist residencies: http://www.resartis.org
    Good luck for your project! Best wishes from Uschi
