I was shipwrecked on an island of clouds. The sun’s pillars bored me though, so I set foot on a small indigo place… from “The Map” by Adam Fitzgerald
Kim’s passion in life is to till the earth and watch things grow. With scholarly dedication, he studies the nuances of sun, rain, and wind on his vines. He pays attention to every bird nesting in and around the vineyard and to the gulls and grackles that follow him in the field as he plows. In the barrel, he notes nuances of flavor in wine made from grapes planted where raspberries once grew and flavors from vines planted in hillside shale. It was not a hard choice for me to marry a poet. I was happy to live in an old farmhouse by a creek. Looking back now, I see that - in a sense - I had chosen to become shipwrecked on an island of clouds. In addition, as foreshadowed in “The Map” by Adam Fitzgerald, when I pulled myself away from the mainstream contemporary art world, I would set foot on a small indigo place. This may explain my preference for a palette of cool blues and greys.
