Walking the grounds at Forest Hills, I realized that I was among generations who once contemplated and experienced life just as intensely as we do. As I looked at the names and dates on the markers, studied the ornament and craftsmanship, the symbolism and the history, I felt a certain kinship. I would truly enjoy hearing their thoughts, especially from their historic perspective, on my choice of this object and icon as a vehicle of thought. Perhaps a lively debate is even now in progress.
My first piece at Forest Hills, The Poets Chair, also relates to my sense that one is surrounded by personal stories in a cemetery. It offers visitors a place to take a seat and wonder, as many have before us, about life.
