As the old joke goes:
To be is to do.
To do is to be.
Do be do be do.
Got that one from Kurt
who continues to be an influence.
That's literature for you: the persistence
of thought long after the thinker's death.
Another thing I got from someone else,
who in this case is happily alive and
the making of paper models to make work
My good friend Miroslav
Wanek impressed me long ago
with a scale model diorama of his Prague
made cardboard cut-outs of all his furniture
their ideal placement in a limited space.
working with salvaged lumber it pays to
visualize in paper.
I don't know what it all means. I'm
a Slav at heart and slav
means slave but I can't help but feel
great when given a task
I can attack with utmost devotion and
attention. It's not even
the way I was raised but I think it's in my
blood and there's no
going against that. (You can try
if you like to fail.) So I got out the
scissors and established a system. It's not to
scale but it worked.
I scraped, primed, painted, and solved all the
small problems that
make it so satisfying to build something that
will last in 3D space.
