All right, who didn’t light a candle?

Yes, those are cracks. They are large cracks.


We are not to worry. We will patch these cracks with a marine epoxy, perhaps even with some colorant. And actually I kind of like the pattern they made.

I don’t know when I’m going to do this. Maybe between midnight and 2 a.m. one evening between now and Saturday.

Tomorrow morning I sit in on a rehearsal of my Waltz for string quartet & bassoon, although I’m not sure whether they ever recruited a bassoon.

  1. It just now occurred to me that I didn’t see the tiles. I was so taken by the cracks that I didn’t look. In the morning, perhaps.

  2. When I first saw the picture before reading the text I thought this was some design you had in mind. By the way, Dawn won’t let me play with matches so I guess I can assume partial responsibility for this frustrating yet intriguing development.

  3. The cracks indicate the natural order of things has been violated. A bowl should not have a hole. Makes a provocative “anthropological” design, though.

  4. Two updates: the actual patching will occur at home in the labyrinth, and the Waltz work was rescheduled for tomorrow.
