On a less frivolous note, a thoughtful reader left a comment yesterday about Howard Pyle's image of Thomas Jefferson writing the Declaration of
Independence: "The painting struck me because of the loneliness--the dim
candlelight by which he wrote, and the quiet isolation of his room. It
is strange to think that a government would come of this--one man's
quiet thought. This is what a revolution looks like."
I'm having horrible connectivity problems because of recent storms. Pages and images load like it's the 1980's. Signing off now—see you tomorrow!
