Our Nephew, Singing and Cats

18 Jun

Our nephew, Mark Galen Lucas, is an artist in glass and his work is remarkable. He has given me permission to show you this beautiful piece about which he says, “This piece is about depression. As one hand is trying to evolve and flower, the other plucks the petals not allowing anything unfamiliar to take hold.”

Molecular Self-destruction by Mark Galen Lucas

We are learning ‘Lean on Me’ at choir, ready for singing at World Refugee Day on Wednesday. The arrangement by our leader, Claire Ingleheart,  is sounding amazing. I’ll give you a recording after Wednesday’s performance.

Two of next door’s cats visited this evening.

England won!

    Where is that sculpture? In Jerome, perhaps? Can’t wait to hear your version of ‘Lean on me.”

      Yes, it’s in Jerome. His other work is beautiful too if you ever get up that way. xx

      Yes, Mark is in Jerome and his studio is well worth a visit. I posted a version of the song and hope you like it! 🙂xx

    I’m stunned by your nephew’s sculpture and what it represents. It speaks a sad truth, in a beautiful way.

    That sculpture is astonishing. Does your nephew suffer from depression? It looks like it’s something he understands.

      Interesting comment. He lives in America and we see him only infrequently, last time in 2016 and I cannot answer your question, I am sorry to say.
