Mountain family

Margaret "Mars" Clark, her sisters; Mary and Libby on the shores of Hunter Lake, the Catskill Mountains. Mars and husband, Marc, celebrating 20 years at the Barn. A 4th of July extravaganza with fireworks, catfish po boys, egg toss, hot dogs, roaring fire, skits, songs and other general madness and poetry.

Molly and I just returned after 4 days, and while I'm glad to be back in Brooklyn, I am grateful and blessed to be considered part of the mountain "family." Highlight: Dank singing "Rawhide," loud enough to wake the dead, at two in the morning. While I was trying to sleep, I couldn't help but smile at his vigorous rendition.
