i love this assemblage....i made it during The Summer Of Mom. we had decided, as you may remember, to spend wednesdays together. at first awkward...soon warm and intimate. the 1st wednesday, we couldn't decide what to do or where to go. we ended up having breakfast at a little diner near my house. the birds in this piece remind me of us on that day...the door swung open on our cage - but now, where to go? what to do? is it safer to stay put in our familiarity? anyway, we got over it and flew.
