|The Big Rock 1974|
|Perched On Top - July 1974|
Though a 1/4 mile out in the woods, we chose to build our homestead nearby. It would become a hub of our endeavors.
Rocks hold a certain significance in our history. While everything else may change, they have permanence. In James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Saga, Deerslayer or Hawkeye was to meet Chingachgook, the Mohican, at Council Rock. This was at the base of Lake Otsego (Glimmerglass) in New York State. This was next to the lake's outlet which is the headwaters of the Susquehanna River. Though this story is a bit of historical fiction, the landmarks therein can be found today. Thus magic is woven into our lives.
