HAPPY THOMAS MORTON DAY!


HAPPY THOMAS MORTON DAY!

Merrymount CD cover Jpeg

Well, Matt Damon is busy with leotard-fittings to play Aqua-Man, but someday Boston and New England are going to claim their real-world first heritage with a worthy film about the life, misadventures and achievements of our first English poet and naturalist among this continent’s first peoples, our first multicultural rascal and political exile, Thomas Morton of Merrymount.

True Revelers are too few these days. Morton was the primeval precedent for locking them up. To the dance of money, the last wilderness they’re taming is in us.
