Tahiti . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

There is something wonderful to be said for a natural way of life, close to the Earth, unrestricted by modern sexual taboos. A life of plenty, of simple joy in the abundance of nature. Homes made of wood, small and neat and easily constructed. Of sharing with neighbors, lifting up our friends in need, comforting the sick, welcoming babies into the world, teaching a child a trade. Loving life.

I am reminded of the paintings of Paul Gauguin while he was in Tahiti. Here are a few.
