In Memorium

One day Chuck Wiley asked if he could take two buoys from our pile of buoys collected from Kehoe Beach. He gave no explanation about what he had in mind but the next day he returned with one. In a seemingly simple configuration he transformed the buoy. With two holes cut for the eyes and one for a mouth, it now holds all the mystery of the inscrutable Mona Lisa smile. 

We were stunned when we got the news of Chuck's sudden passing. We think of him every day as we pass by this totem that stands at the top of our driveway as guardian and greeter.
