Artist's Description

*This is a intersection of carriage roads in Acadia National Park, just up from Jordan Pond…the one to the left goes to the amphitheater, and around the mountain…the one to the right continues along the lake…these ‘carriage roads’ were built by the Rockefellers when they owned Mt. Desert Island, used by the ultra-rich purely for their amusement…now great places for easy hiking, horses, and riding bikes (and walks with your dog!)… they wind though the park, placed and built so that they aren’t seen from overlooks, etc…

This image brings to mind lyrics from Dan Fogelberg’s “Nether Lands”…

“…Once in a vision
I came on some woods,
And stood at a fork in the road…
My choices were clear,
Yet I froze with the fear
Of not knowing which way to go…
One road was simple,
Acceptance of life…
The other road offered sweet peace…
When I made my decision,
My vision became my release.”……..

High on this mountain
The clouds down below
I’m feeling so strong and alive
From this rocky perch
I’ll continue to search
For the wind
And the snow
And the sky
I want a lover
I want some friends
And I want to live in the sun
And I want to do all the things that I
never have done.
Sunny bright mornings
And pale moonlit nights
Keep me from feeling alone
Now, I’m learning to fly
And this freedom is like
Nothing that I’ve ever known
I’ve seen the bottom
And I’ve been on top
But mostly I’ve lived in between
And where do you go
When you get to the end of
your dream?
Off in the nether lands
I heard a sound
Like the beating of heavenly wings
And deep in my brain
I can hear a refrain
Of my soul as she rises and sings
Anthems to glory and
Anthems to love and
Hymns filled with early delight
Like the songs that the darkness
Composes to worship the light.
Once in a vision
I came on some woods
And stood at a fork in the road
My choices were clear
Yet I froze with the fear
Of not knowing which way to go
One road was simple
Acceptance of life
The other road offered sweet peace
When I made my decision
My vision became my release.
