Urchins From Many Walks

These are the railroad tracks in Medfield where I found the tie for the Urchins sculpture. One boy noticed me taking his picture and started dancing. Watching, I was reminded of "Stand By Me".

Here is a compilation of relics from various walks. At the top is a porous, man-made rock from Webb Memorial State Park, one of the loveliest of the Boston Harbor Islands. Balanced below is a railroad tie I found while hiking across the tracks out by my hometown. The curved driftwood is from Cape Cod, and either end is lightly covered with bark that holds the same purplish hue of the rock. Suspended from the wood are coconut shells sitting atop sea urchin spines which make the most delicate sound when they clink together.
