As we were leaving NYC we stopped
along the Palisades,
one of philanthropy's greatest gifts,
to view an area that had for so long been our home directly across the River .
Looking back on the City that had
informed us, we were eagerly anticipating our arrival upstate
to another area that we also knew so well.
How wonderful and apropos
Frederick Church skies had followed us
We had spent a good part of each
year throughout our young adulthood
in the lovely town of Lake Lucerne
thanks to Bill, our dear and generous friend who had a house
on the Hudson River not far from Lake George.
As we entered Yaddo we were surprised to see lights on in the Mansion and wondered.
It turned out that there was renovation work going on in other buildings
and the Mansion was being used
for the first time in decades during the Fall season.
Our amazement only increased when we heard we were to be in Katrina's room.
With Stone South Studio as our work space,
we were truly blessed and like honored guests returning, knew upon arriving at Yaddo,
we had returned home...
for this was where our collaboration formally began twenty-five years ago.
