Once upon a time… The reclusive, elusive, enigmatic and inspired Buck Weedleman visited a pearl of a city, adjacent to a free port on the Pecatonica River, and surprised three researchers having a drink at the Yellow Creek Inn. Our trip begins there. Weedleman, while considered delusional by some, is perhaps strangely enlightened in his lost reality like a hero in a fairytale blissfully unaware that he exists within the fairytale. I don’t know. I can only report what he said in response to a few questions I posed. I found Weedleman’s demeanor to be kind yet caustic, authentic yet obstinate, genuine yet hidden from perception, heroic yet villainous, or perhaps just captivating. Buck Weedleman’s reality is either that of a true visionary or a deluded parody; Reality or delusion – I guess that’s for you to decide.
