You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘Thomas Moran’ tag.

“Moran” means one thing in many Eastern and Southern US ports.  It refers to something/someone else out here.  There was Michael in the mid-19th century, and around the same time, there

were–likely unrelated to Michael– Thomas and Edward.  Thomas painted the western wonders, although he had New York roots.  His brother Edward painted the sixth boro.

“Steamboat” has another meaning here too.  In this unearthly landscape, the

sounds and smells

outstrip the sounds, smells, and power at a gathering like the  “pageant of steam.”  Below is “steamboat geyser,” currently in neutral.

Meanwhile . . . the road beckons . . . but with

occasional stops.   I’ve no idea who this bird is or what he was telling me.
