A couple months ago Wilson broke one of my favorite glasses, one from a set of four with phrases by Jenny Holzer that I have always adored, long before I even knew the coolness of Jenny Holzer who projects words on cities, like in Providence a while back.
The four are:
the most profound things are inexpressible
boredom makes you do crazy things
you are guileless in your dreams
protect me from what I want
It was "protect me..." that Wilson decided to knock over.
The glass is still sitting dangerously sharp and fragile on my studio windowsill. I stare at it for long periods each day from my desk.
