“Moonwalkers” Series / The Human Race
Moonwalker Series, The Family 4, 5, 6, 7 &8 of 30 This Series is my commentary on the ( Human Condition )
“A series of postures expressing the strife of surviving on earth now and in the near future. A few redeeming Poses ( People helping others ) and the rest express anguish, horror, desperation, greed, helplessness, and brutality. This work is my mission for the rest of my life. For the most part we are fortunate in the west yet we cannot avoid a future of human struggle. We are bad caretakers of ourselves and earth. This is one man’s opinion ! “
” My Debtor’s Prison”
I’ve hoarded the trailing’s and leavings of my adopted world
and like a fisherman’s worm I am dangled a still wiggling bait.
From distance great and small my debtors wail like a siren’s song upon my walls.
I must have hoped for too much food, two morsels here a morsel there.
A stamp of emblazoned guilt upon my back burns deeper as again my stomach cry’s loud
the sound of it echo’s across landscaped pigment circling upward past O’Keeffe’s water towers.
Delirious drifting reminders, companions in the dusk, tired thoughts entertain
There should be more light in my room or more room for my light.
As low with dogged determination of sprit blazes a ray of sunlight
Eighty stories down never finds me but there in the scape of fields and streams.
The light is splendor and wholeness of healing.
I’ve asked too much again.

Smiling at my mother in 1978. Taking a break from building my stone house on Grindstone Is.
Our house on Grindstone Is. started in 1975 Home made of Piction Is. Red Granite. We salvaged the Cut Stones made from the quarry’s on Picton Is. for the actress May Irwin’s home on Club Is. It burned in 1932. She had the stones moved to her farm near Spicer Bay. They were found by me in 20 ft. of water off Irwin Pt. in 1985. I brought them to Grindstone and finally finished the stone work in 2002.
Here are some Videos to start off with…

“Sculptures on their own make no impression, they are simply a cluster of atoms in the forest of cosmic dust. Blah, blah, blah. (-;
Then the thing happens that gives them life. We acknowledge them by seeing, sensing, touching, discovering.
We see a thing and it becomes a part of us, we hear a sound because it is in us.
The crow’s Caw Caw Caw ( Click Here ) from afar, becomes something in us.
A work of art, a song, dance, chant, birth, picture, anything we become aware of exists through awareness.”
I’m happy to put my few works up for you to see, and I hope I have made a connection.” W.L.S.
