“SEEING IS FORGETTING THE NAME OF THE THING ONE SEES”

I wish all that I learned today was just an April fools joke, but it wasn’t.  You can’t take away my memories of watching her that day as she walked us about her home introducing us to the treasures that filled every space.  She stopped and went to a special shelf caressing each piece of sculpture whether it was porcelain, marble, bronze, ceramic, or wood… it was a delicate “being” of an object.  Each piece represented a special friendship, a longing for that special moment she once shared with each Artist.  She smiled my way as she went into the next room with another colorful story to share.  Time stood still that day.

FYI  The quote is the title of Lawrence Weschler’s book about Robert Irwin.  No doubt, she probably knew him too…
