It would be gilding the lily somewhat for me to try to talk too much about this, so I'll just say that author/artist Maira Kalman visited Monticello and captured the experience in one of her trademark picture-essay blog entries, entitled "Time Wastes Too Fast." It is, in the words of one commenter, "sublime." And the comments on her entry (379 and counting) are the most remarkable outpouring of emotion about Jefferson that I've ever seen. You must see this thing.
