|"Kindred Spirits in a Garden" - MMSikes|
Last summer, by complete chance--is there really such a thing?--I found Daisy Hickman's Sunny Room Studio and there I discovered a kindred spirit. Since then I have found other spirits kindred to me while visiting her site.
What an amazing thing this Internet is! Daisy and the other special people I've discovered using the electronic wonders of our world live far across the country or even across the globe from me. Without the Internet, it is doubtful we ever would have known one another.
What are kindred spirits?
"Kindred Spirits" is a painting by Thomas Cole created in 1849. It's from the Hudson River School--among my favorite paintings because of the mystical feeling generated by that series of works. This painting may be the best known of the glorious, evocative work by an adventurous group of artists.
For me, kindred spirits are those people with like thoughts and interests. I hope I shall encounter many more as I travel and make notes along the way...
