gimme an I! gimme an R!
Long but satisfying day today: a field trip with colleagues – mostly, thankfully, not from my own dysfunctional office – to study public art in Cleveland. Admit it, you're jealous! Well, maybe you should be: it was truly inspiring. These images are from the reading garden at the Cleveland Public Library, a splendid little urban pocket park.
[Updated to add: These marvelous things didn't just materialize! Let's give credit where credit is due, shall we? Bronze figures and gates by Tom Otterness; reflecting pool wall by Maya Lin and Tan Lin.]
From the home front today, J reports this observation from Iris about a sign they saw: "I! R! S! Those are letters in my name! ...What are all those extra letters not in my name?"
A couple signs I saw in Cleveland that made an impression:
"Beehive School." I can see this going either way: a busy hive of activity, or a colony of worker drones?
"Indisputable Barber Shop." OK, I believe you!
