Yesterday I received an e-mail from a friend I met while in my early 20’s. He and I used to go around a bit about the pros and cons of staying in the Los Angeles area versus leaving the metropolis to live and travel. You may be familiar with that theme…should I go or should I stay…my hometown…and so on. In our case, Los Angeles County was not small but it was familiar and full of late nights with friends and intriguing films.
He stayed, I left. After having met Peter, I took one false start to San Francisco Bay’s north penninsula, then a leap to the home of my heart…Idaho. Up north, there was always something to work on, another wall to paint or tear out, another vegetable or flower bed to care for, children to bring to the river.
Down south Peter was always working on something too: rebuilding a sports car, making a movie, always learning to do something new. A very creative fellow is Peter. He’s been sending photos of one of his latest projects, snapshots of his designs through to the actualization, and most recently a link to a video clip of his work: Elephant Fountain.
Now you and I don’t have to leave the Arctic or New Mexico to travel to Burma, Peter brings his travels to us. Enjoy!
