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.
Flicka, my favorite, and Rusalka's Moon Song. Oh you've hit a great one here, so beautiful, her work. She did a definitive performance of Showboat with Hadley et al. A stunning Met. opera star, I got to meet and relax with her brother, what an opportunity to hear of her life at a personal level. One of those never to forget experiences I treasure.
