The past touches the future in a grandfather’s loving touch. In an ideal world, the influence of grandparents shapes and gives flight to a child’s dreams and imaginations in ways never intended for parents themselves. I suppose I romanticize the notion of grandparents–though I only knew my father’s mother, we were close before her death, and when I dream of "home", the house is hers.
This sculpture, aptly named "Grandfather", is found outside Rembrandt’s in the Bluff View Arts District of Chattanooga. It is one of my all-time favorite pieces of art.
