En route to NYC, we stayed with our friends David Gubits and Mariella Bisson in Woodstock. David is a highly successful attorney who generously devotes time to preservation of wild lands. He’s also the most knowledgeable music and art aficionado we’ve ever met. Mariella is a brilliant artist whose creativity extends beyond the canvas. She possesses the mental equivalent of a Ferrari and handles it like Mario Andretti. Because she usually says what she thinks, being in her presence is stimulating and refreshing. Visit www.mariellabisson.com to see how her waterfalls leap beyond conventional landscape art.
