Larry's gifts....

I can't help it...when I see incredible stuff, I have to share. These are just a couple of examples of my much-too-humble blogpal Larry's sand sculpture. You can find links on his blog under sand sculpture on the left, and navigate to find more work. It's simply wonderful.

    Hey, folks, it's just sand... but no one else does anything like this. I'm driven by a desire for beauty that runs into a requirement that I leave no tracks.

    Sand leaves no tracks. The sculpture disappears. But... the sculptor is working in a highly public place. Sand sculpture requires tons of sand and water and there's only one place to find those.

    It's interesting. Sand sculpture started as an engineering exercise, gradually changed to a design exercise as the engineering became more established, and then became a revealer of something I never thought I'd tangle with: Love.

    I got saved in 1971, started doing sand sculpture in 1979 while camping with a friend in Maine and then departed from God in about 1982. I kept doing sand sculpture, and when the time was right God brought a man to the beach when I was sculpting.

    God, sand, love, Jesus. Who'd have thought it. We are fearfully and wonderfully made, as BJK has pointed out today.

    Man, that's awesome. Have you ever seen food sculptures? That stuff amazes me also.
