The world came together yesterday! I couldn’t believe that I had mixed up some of the poetry lines – had to correct them. The final view shows some of the strips coming away, so the globe feels a bit unsettled, slightly incomplete. And the poem requires that the viewer search for meaning. But isn’t all this part of our experience here on Planet Earth? The world is also an extremely beautiful place and I hope that comes through as well. And there it is, hanging by a thread – in some ways that says it all.
Thanks to my friends and neighbors who have tolerated my intense distraction with this piece for the past many months. I appreciate the support everyone has given me. This piece is now spinning in search of its place in the world . . . wish me luck!
