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.
Wonderful painting. Recently was introduced to the works of Fredric Church while visiting his home Olana in the Hudson River Valley. Coincidentally I was introduced to the Hudson River School and its members. The view from Olana introduced me to the inspiration of the members. They have done well capturing mystery and beauty in nature. This work by Heade is no exception.
