There’s actually an interesting political story from today, and I cast around for hours wondering how to frame it so it was somewhat upbeat for the weekend.
And then I saw this image from my photographer friend Peter Ralston. It jumped out at me.
It’s called “Hang Together,” and Peter says: “A very simple photograph, made over in Port Clyde. Really not much to it, yet when I saw this I immediately thought of Benjamin Franklin’s observation at the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”
Perfect for this fraught moment in our history.
On that note, I’m going to hand Peter the mic, and take an early night. I’ll see you tomorrow.

Notes: People always ask how to find Peter. You can find him and his wife Terri at their gallery in Rockport, Maine, or on the web at https://www.ralstongallery.com/ If you reach out, say a personal hello. They’re lovely.
