I am a collector of things. I collect round things. Rusty things. Precious things. Things in the midst of some grand journey. I am a creator of things. Finely crafted things. Functional things. Non-functional things. Things that simply must be made. All these things take up residence in the mysterious world I call home. They live and die. They evolve and decay. They speak of other things they once knew--of remarkable things that I don't understand. With wonder and curiosity, I do my best to participate.
