  1. Darling, you are speaking my language....

    I just spent 4 days in Highlands, NC with 4 incredible friends at the most amazing 1830 house. Along the way, I met a man there who owns a gallery and used to live and own a gallery in Sannibel, and I asked if he knew Robert R, and we traded stories back and forth. It seems we have both been fortunate enough to encounter him and Jasper and others along out way...
    We spoke of Black Mountain reverently. Cannot believe you just wrote about it, but why should I not. It seems you are my secret twin!
