I really like this picture! It has a lot to say. Charles MarshburnEditor's note: Yes, it says so much and has as many levels of ambiguity as the novel Moby Dick.

It can be interpreted many ways. In my understated, unbiased way of looking at things, the picture of quiet contentment was itself a prayer of Thanksgiving, with both cat and man grateful for each other and Gradyville-on-Big Creek, KY; for being so privileged as to live in a perfect place like Adair County, where immigrants from such diverse lands as Vermont and Idaho, and such strange ones as Florida and Arizona, can find idyllic Edens, right here. -EW
