We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Ah, dear old Meredith. Decades ago, 60s or 70s, she was in San Francisco and working in a topless dancer bar to make money. She was also developing some of her early work and had me make a film of one of those dances at Mills College. Alas I was toomuch of a hippy to follow through on it, but I may have given her the 8 millimeter film. I simply don't remember.
A very early Monk dance, from her topless bar period, saved or lost forever.
