It’s the Weekend!


Fan of the Hudson River School

Congrats for making it through yet another week, so now it’s time to get out there and soak up some of that first-weekend-of-autumn fun. But before we head out for the weekend, we’d like to send a great big thank-you to everyone who dropped by this week to add encouragement, support, proof-reading and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about

A very special thank you to Cale, who was one the primary inspirations for, and who enriched the website with his steadfast devotion and creative contributions since its inception. RIP Cale.
