Hilton Head Island: my best words; Raptored
Like I expect most of you, I don’t often visit the main site. I regret having separated the journal from that site, but uploading and revising a post with Blogger is decidedly faster than with iWeb.
Nevertheless I have just made changes to the home page of inthepresentsea.com.
This followed reading an interview this past weekend with an original artist during which some of my words were mentioned.
While there is no doubt in my mind that ‘A sailor is an artist whose medium is the wind.’ is my best known and likely will be longest remembered sentence, my statement of an artist’s defining responsibility may be my best. I am not aware that anyone else has ever said it better.
I wasn’t sure there was room for those words. I’m glad there is.
I finished applying the Raptor non-skid to GANNET’s deck. Just in time. A blister has formed on my thumb from using the shears.
Being white on white, the Raptor panels don’t show up as well in the photos as in person.
I like the way it looks and it seems to be a good non-skid surface. Water over the deck, inevitable in time on GANNET, will tell.
