“I feel an artist should go about his work simply with great respect for his materials…sculptors of all places and climates have used what came ready at hand. They did not search for exotic and precious materials. It was their knowledge and invention which gave value to the result of their labors.” — Alexander Calder, The Whifetree, circa 1936 standing mobile, painted sheet metal and wire.

Once I had a child

He was wilder than moonlight

He could do it all

Like he’d been here before
