Yeah, yeah, I know I haven't blogged since June. Try having an operation on your elbow, wearing a sling and doing everything with your left hand when you're right-handed. Well, it sucks.
But I've been watching the lot at Ardmore Avenue and Lancaster Avenue daily.
It's nice to see someone (a disciple?) has stepped in to build and re-build the rock sculpture using the large, heavy, granite rocks I left, as well as whatever smaller stones he/she can find. Initially, the sculpture was just the three large rocks placed one upon another. Over time the quality of the sculpture has evolved into a more artistic work.
Maybe it's not the same person or maybe the person has learned from his/her earlier efforts. The picture below shows what it looked like yesterday morning. Unfortunately, when I passed by it today, it had been knocked down. (Been there - seen that.)
And though I've been disabled by this elbow surgery, I built a sculpture in my drive-way single-handed (literally). It's not the intricate, complex structure that I had made in Ardmore, but it gave me a feeling of satisfaction. I'm sure my orthopedic surgeon would have a fit if he knew, but who could possibly tell him?
Wonder what would happen if I do get the OK to continue building rock sculptures. Have I relinquished all rights to the Ardmore Avenue site? If I returned with my own rocks, would re-building the sculpture become a mutual collaboration? I'll just have to take things one rock at a time.
