A Thought for Today

Solitude develops perspicacity and reflection.

A Piece of My Work

Human memory is a wondrous matter. I recall my first visit at a physician who was not a pediatrician. I believe I was about 14-15 years old. It was a routine visit required for admission to a particular school. While listening to his talk, I noticed on his desk a human hand made in stone, which impressed me by its expressiveness. It was saying to me: "I will". It stuck in my memory... Now, after so many years, I suddenly felt that I must make it in clay and I glazed it.
