|Homage, 1974, modified typewriter by Leopoldo Maier, Hess Winery Gallery|
My first memory of a typewriter. It was red and flameless. A Tom Thumb. A gift from my mother's sister. One of the most extraordinary gifts I received. Others, include pencils engraved with my name. Be aware of the gifts you give; the gifts you receive.
Recently, I was given a wooden spoon. A treasure. Treasures can be practical.
How are typewriters and spoons similiar? They both are vehicles to stir, whether words or soup. Please sit down, a meal has been prepared for you.
