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.
Mrs. Chairman remarked that "Isn't it funny how often, when people talk about abstract art, they tend to translate it into metaphors about representation - and when they talk about representational art, they talk in terms of line and shape and flow and abstract form and dynamics?"
And here I thought you actually lived in Vermont, where a neighbor of ours when I was a child was named Maggie and lived in (almost) the house depicted above. I doubt you'd have taken a day trip all the way to Storm King.
All that aside, I'm glad you mentioned it because I think it's one of those wonderful, special places that we should all visit at least once a year, kind of like the ocean. Thanks!
