“I had a mother who read to me” is from a familiar poem, THE READING MOTHER by Strickland Gillilan. My mother would not let us, her children, declare that we were bored. “You cannot be bored! Only boring people are bored! You could live a hundred lifetimes and never do the same thing twice. There is more here in this Earth to learn about and enjoy than you ever could.” This sculpture is for the miracle of the creation of the earth and all its miracles, and my mother’s teachings. Sitting on top of a world made of unlimited wonders, a boy and a girl sit back to back, engrossed in their study. Through learning about this world, the potential for all children is infinite.
