Keep Saving The Mount!

This spring, I wrote in a state of anxiety about the campaign to save The Mount, the home of the American author Edith Wharton, in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. Although the Edith Wharton Restoration, the organization that maintains the house and garden and opens them to the public each summer, has been granted a six-month extension, the danger of foreclosure remains high. Only a little less than a third has been raised of the $3 million needed by October 31. Some of the money raised is, yes, mine. If I, an unemployed artist, can make a donation, so can you.

There. Now don’t you feel better?
