always APROPOS...

We are nauseated by the sight of trivial personalities decomposing in the eternity of print. 
~Virginia Woolf

  1. Says it all this political season with those horrible men who have treated America as a Slave, those men who for the lack of better words mask as Politicians but are true Klansman practicing Racism & Greed, thwarting the rebuilding of infrastructure, human rights, and general well being in everyday citizens for the benefit of the few! In another era of our founding fathers, they would've been rounded up, tried and shot as traitors for subverting the common goal of Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness for their benefit...not to mention the invocation of Religion which has no bearing in our governance according to the Constitution.

  2. It's easy to say, but I think it's fair to say, Woolf's complaint would have been a continuing pre-occupation in John Huston, which we feel we can almost observe in this outstanding portrait. As I think of his lows and his highs, I can't forget that he went out with the most beautiful film of Joyce ever put together, with a gifted daughter and son at his side to see it through. I thank you very much for the discovery of this portrait, where one can feel this to be foretold.
