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.
My favorite Bergman film is Fanny and Alexander. I like it because of the supernatural atmosphere and the great cinematography. I found most of his films interesting earlier in life, but now I waste little time watching exestential pap. Life is too short to dwell on the angst, or the futility of our existence or other hopeless BS. As Pudleglum would say: " Even if Narnia did not exist, I'm going to live life like a Narnian".
