    It’s been many years since the children began leaving home and going off to school. Longer still since the sound of their young voices rose and fell in the excitement of playing the newest game or with the newest toy. The children still return occasionally to the place they once called home, but they have moved on now to homes of their own.

    The parents have activities and interests that keep them occupied now that the children have gone. They have slowly learned to adapt.

    But what about the toys, the ones that remain behind, the ones that generated so much excitement and fun so long ago. They sit now silently in place, ignored and pretty much forgotten in rooms no longer occupied by the children they once delighted. They wait for the visits that come less often now, never complaining, in quiet resignation, they wait. They wait for the times when they see their children again, and hear their voices. Perhaps just a glance in their direction from the children or a smile, recall memories of days long ago when they were the center of attention. They wait for those moments.

    When our son was very young he couldn’t say the word children, he said gilgen instead. This painting is titled, Waiting for the Gilgen. It is 18 x 24 oil on canvas.

    I am a self confessed generalist, generally interested in everything. As such, the UFO phenomenon has not escaped my gaze. Here is a little bit of fun directed toward that subject. It is called the King and Queen of Outer Space and is 18 x 24 oil on canvas.

    When I was very young and my grandfather was very old we played a game that he taught me. He called it the imagination game. My grandfather would take a blank piece of paper and with a pencil he would make a mark or a few marks on the paper. He asked me not to think about anything as I looked at the paper and the marks he had made. Instead, he asked me to draw what I saw and not what I wanted to see. I loved my grandfather and I loved the game as well. I still play the game over 50 years later, only now I play it without my grandfather making the initial marks, or maybe in some way he still does. Here is one example of what happens when I play.

    This is my first post to the Personal Cargo Space.

    This project "The Space Collective" can be a valuable tool in helping us understand the vastness of our similarities as human beings as well as our differences. If used well, we can examine our history to help us understand how we reached this point in time and then what the future may hold for us. I am pleased to have the opportunity to participate.

    From time to time I will post some of my art work here in the cargo space. I am currently working in analog methods and materials, but am fairly comfortable using digital media also.

    Welcome all who pass this way.
