Luke Ramsey

The trip to Vermont was wonderful. I didn't take any pictures because they would have looked small and stupid, and Vermont demands majesty!

Anyhoo, Ryan showed me a room that his friend Luke Ramsey painted for a nephew of his. Would the fruits have scared me as a kid? I was a very sensitive child...

Sorry for the sporadic blog postings - It's not school that's keeping me, it's the Olympics! USA! USA! (and all that stuff about international harmony as well)

"A consistent manifestation of unenlightened perversity.”

It's so weird when you're going to Vermont and the featured article on the NY Times site - your homepage - is about going there. Well, more precisely, about a Depression-era travel guide for the state.

The title of the post, by the way, is the guide's take on how outside observers view the "creative chuztpah" that Vermonters have. Amen! I'm hoping to find a lot of such perversity when I visit my friends Emily and Ryan. If you go to the interactive feature in the article, you can even see a short slide show on Brattleboro, where they live.
