That was very impressive.

I've never been sold on the need for the American Revolution but Jefferson was definitely a very impressive man.

Thank you. My first trip after my husband left was to fulfill the fantasy of driving to Monticello. I wanted to see the clock with counterweights that went through the floor. I suddenly remembered the trip from that link! Thanks again.

PS...

It's all your fault. I rooted around in my journals and am writing the story of my run away from home. So I have to thank you yet again!

Loved this post. Thank you. The Husband has been to Monticello, but I have not. Got to put it on my places to go list.

I had seen parts of this before, on the NYT website. It was wonderful to see the whole thing. I think the artist helped to create a universe that said volumes about the man, the times, our country.

I find his love for his wife to be very touching, making all his other flaws forgivable

I just recently saw this.......and you are right, it is worth seeing through to the end.

Great post. thank you for pointing us to this artist and her story.
I have visited Monticello several times. It is beautiful. There is also a slave graveyard on the grounds that is very sad.

The smokehouses are also still there. The walk up to the house is unbelievably beautiful.

Monticello is truly a national treasure.

T^hat is one impressive article, specially to who didn't know him, like me. I had the opportunity of reading and signing the Declaration of Independence and I found it overwhelming. Jefferson must have been a genious. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for this. I loved it. The art is so fresh and engaging. I have shared it further.

I am so amazed at how you get to visit so many blogs! How do you do it?

love,

That was wonderful. I've been to Monticello a couple of times. It's absolutely beautiful. You find the best stuff, wise, human, and motivating.

That IS well worth the read. Were you reading nytimesonline and just happened to come across it?

Nancy said...

California Girl - Yes! And she has done this on other topics - look at the bottom of the page.

What a creative biography of one of our country's greatest men. I took my son's 4th grade class to Monticello on a school field trip, when I lived in Maryland. It's beautiful and very stately. Thanks for this informative post.
