And they made art.
Inspired by Alexander Calder's sculpture entitled "Red Fish Tail".
This sculpture is suspended from the ceiling.
It's considered a mobile because it has parts that move.
But there are parts to this piece that remain stationary.
That's called a stabile (pronounced "stay-beel")
The kids created art that included both a mobile and a stabile.
And me...I am struck.
I exist wishing to create art by the very life I live.
And there are facets of my life that are fixed, certain, sure.
And there are facets that are fluid, changing, moveable.
I am part mobile and part stabile.
I am found in a collaboration of crimson metal and wires hanging above my head.
A piece of art.
Projecting life as I live it.
As I suspect we all live it.
With some aspects firm and steadfast.
And some uncertain and transitory.
And I think I like it that way.
