Alice… Alice look at me. You are. You are worth dating.
THE GHOST CLOCK
Located in the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The description on the plague says:
"At first glance, Ghost Clock appears to be a grandfather clock hidden by a large white sheet tied with a rope. A close look, however, reveals a masterful deception: this entire sculpture was hand-carved from a single block of laminated mahogany. With meticulous detail, Castle re-created in wood the contours of soft, supple cloth, then completed the illusion by bleaching the “drapery” white and staining the base of the “clock” a walnut brown. This work is the last in a series of thirteen clocks the artist created in the 1980s; unlike the others, it lacks an inner mechanism. Its haunting stillness and silence suggest eternity—the absence of time.”
Martha was annoyed to discover that the #7 bus, instead of taking her to bridge club, had dropped her in yet another damn fantasy world.
The fauns in the last one had been very polite, but she’d had to fight that thing with the tentacles off with her handbag.
Andrew made a little Internet Whoops today — just in case you missed it.
Best EVER? Noooo.
