Skywatch Friday: Monticello
The latest trip to North Topsail Beach, North Carolina, included a stop at Thomas Jefferson's place in Virginia, and it was well worth it. A thinker, innovator, diplomat--visionary. His home--Monticello--and its dumb waiter for the wine bottles and ecclectic artwork and skylights and....is gorgeous. It struck me as fitting that the man who largely shaped our nation in its early years had a clear vision of the beauty of life.
