Excerpt

"The table my father built is long gone and only the memory of it remains, possibly transformed into the sculptural tables I've been creating in my studio. Our Fleury Street house had no sewer, water, power, telephone, sidewalks and fences. The ashes and cinders from the City incinerator were dumped on our streets. We had an outhouse. Going to the "can" was quite the experience. The City "honey wagon" came by regularly to pick up the full can and leave an empty. Our outhouse door faced north and so one of the benefits of a late-night visit was a spectacular view of the star bright night sky. With the outhouse door open to the world, I was able to locate Ursula Major--the Big Dipper--Polaris and the summer triangle. Often, I would catch a glimpse of a shooting star. In the deep winter, the Aurora Borealis, alive with colors would perform a magical ribbon dance. Waves of greens, yellows and rosy hues twisted and turned, constantly in motion filling the northern sky."
