If you find the somewhat insane and possibly inane ramblings on this blog useful or entertaining, and want to encourage this sort of caffeine and whiskey-fueled behavior to continue, consider making a small donation to the cause using PayPal.  The price of a cup of coffee goes a long way in the minimalist household.*  Clicking the donate button will take you to a secure PayPal page.

Donate Button with Credit Cards*The cause, in this case, is to escape the ridiculous and humdrum existence that is mid-level academia and dive full-time into the realm of pre-industrial craftsmanship in the modern world.  Please, do not feel obligated in any way by this option.  Friendly and supportive comments are just as welcome as any other donation.

      1. Hi George – I was pleasantly surprised to see your entry on Wm. Sidney Mount . His painting Eel Spearing in Setauket is probably a fairly close image of the boat Henry Thoreau and brother built for the 2 weeks on Concord and Merrimack Rivers . Mount’s sympathetic portraits of Afro-Americans are in sharp contrast to contemporary lampoon images of others . Mount’s paintings can be seen at the Stony Brook Museum on Long Island which also has a great collection of antique horse drawn wagons including a Conestoga and gypsy caravan . I’ve given classes here in Stuart Florida to inner city elementary school students in making cigar box guitars and diddly bows , they were a big hit . Thanks for your articles ! Chris Englund
