08 Jan Still Life with Recycled Steel Grill and Central Park
My friend Debra sent me some great shots of her Firebird Grill with the NYC skyline all lit up behind the bowl. You can see the lights of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings, the Triborough bridge and other landmarks. I can’t wait to see the spring pictures she’s promised with cherry blossoms in Central Park. She also included the following note:
John! You gave me a Fire Bowl! I’m stunned and delighted and moved. And I received it on *Sept. 21*, Fall Equinox/culmination of Lamas. Which is a time when you’re supposed to burn your Lamas doll that you’ve created at the beginning of Lamas, and then live with until Equinox, and then burn it, ritually. And now I have this beautiful work of art to do my burning. It’s just gorgeous. Thank you so much! It truly is a work of art. I am going to be studying it intensely over the next few days. I’m just thrilled and surprised and appreciative. It’s on my terrace now, on my Italian tiles from the late 1800s. Getting acquainted with its new home (it seems content out there!).
