Every single piece of sculpture that I have made
Is a piece of time etched into my memory

I remember the smells, particularly
I remember the setting and the weather
I remember the impulse and desire
I remember all that went around it

This is one of the beautiful things about art for an artist
There are so many occurrences in the rest of my life
That I can't know or comprehend as well
Though I strive too

As a rule; there is no worth in meeting new people past an age.
It is important to not stop breaking rules.

Audrey is nine years old
She is the goddaughter of my partner, ours
We spent a great week this past summer with her
At her grandparents place in the south of France
I spent too much of that time pacing the garden
With Long Walk to Freedom
When Audrey recently learned of Nelson Mandela's death
Apparently her immediate response was 'poor Tyler...'
(as if he were a relative of mine or something)
Ha!....Aren't kids spectacular??!!!

learning to trust

I am not 'anal'
Nor a perfectionist
I am particular

Vane's wreath, 2013

Revolutions are great and I am an admirer of nearly all of them. I think however,
That if I were to start one, I might target something smaller...
Packing peanuts say

You'll encounter many voices
Some you'll read, some you'll hear, others will be 'live'
Look through them if you can
Use your eyes to pierce the cacophony
Never doubt what you think you see
In other words; try not to question
That which you're sure you've seen

The philosopher is simply one who has a difficult sense of humor.
