A blog of personal reflections, adventures both close to home and far away, political musings and commentary, and thoughts on negotiating life as a twenty-something, queer Mainer transplanted to New York City hoping to write, inspire, teach and change the world.

Smile and say "North Carolina"

It's quite a mouthful to say in a photograph! This is on the back stairs of the Biltmore estate leading out in to the gardens. It really recalls Vaux Le Vicompte, which I visited in France this summer. In fact, some of the garden design and ideas for the rooms were lifted directly from there. The Biltmore estate transports you to another place entirely, but it's also a huge momument to capitalism and hierarchy.
