MAQUETTES:  Physical Memories

         A maquette is a scale model.

         For years, I have brought home rocks, bones, coral, and shells

from places to which I have travelled that meant something special

to me.  They serve as a physical memory. 

         One day I put two together from different parts of the world.  

They took on a new identity, becoming more than the sum of their

parts. As a group, they form a quiet universe of their own.

          What connects them is one lone walker.
