I love this video! I found it by accident years ago but I never hear or see anyone mention it. It contains three things from my youth 1) Stockbridge 2} Norman Rockwell 3) Arlo . I live in the mid Atlantic now but I grew up in New Jersey(not Jersey) yet I attend camp in the Berkshires for 8 weeks a summer for 11 years and even worked at the camp it's final year in 1975. Arlo didn't write it , it was written by Steve Vozzolo+ Joe Manning but it just seems very much him. The memories I have from back then are just wonderful, the Berkshires in the 60's and 70's was a very special place that I still love today.

I am pretty sure others have mentioned it, but thanks for bringing it out and sharing your own perspective and the sparking of your own memories too!

One time decades ago, I was in Scandinavia somewhere and wandered into a restaurant/bar. There lots of Rockwell paintings (copies) on the walls. I sat there alone looking at MY doctor, MY friends, and thinking to myself how small the world gets every once in a while.

Exactly! And that was MY doctor too! And MY doctor had THAT painting (or print) (if it’s the same one you mean) on his wall even when he changed offices. Along with that one called “Shiner” (love it) and another painting (print) that was not Norman Rockwell (a doctor with a syringe, a baby oblivious to any needles in the room, and two nervous parents huddled together in the background horrified), but would still put your head in a good place. :)

PS It would not allow me to "reply" with more than 3 consecutive quotes together, so I had to just work with it.

My Kids have given me Two numbered Rockwell prints of Stockbridge itself over the years. Stockbridge at Christmas and the other is the view of Town looking towards the Tower in Spring . I have them in my "man cave" and look at them daily they give me peace.
