How lucky for the world that you were born to show just how extraordinary, in the right light, this world really is! I never would have noticed the beauty of the Northeast coast if it hadn't been through your eyes, your photography. Thank you, my friend.

Recently I have had the distinct pleasure of working with David Lang on an upcoming collaborative artful project.

David has been building sculpture since 1969. Much of his early work was large outdoor public sculpture, mostly in Cor-ten and stainless steel. He is also an accomplished watercolorist, photographer and writer. He chaired the Art Department at Middlesex School in Concord from 1972 thru 2003. Since retiring from teaching he maintains studios in Natick, MA and in Co. Clare, Western Ireland. His focus is mostly on kinetic interactive narrative sculpture. The work is intricate, delicate and in many ways enigmatic, frequently presented on welded wire wheels. It is often whimsical and playful, and always thought provoking.

This video clips is of my two little magic friends, Ben and Emerson, discovering one of David's pieces entitled "The Day the Castinetti Sisters First Learned to Fly".

Sharing an interest in abandoned spaces and the residual emotional energy left behind in images, smells and touch, David and I share a common artful path that will reveal itself as a collaborative installation in the very near future.

Please stay tuned....

My best,

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.

And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

~Charles Swindell
