~this is one of my favorite photos of little ty~
When Ty was little...Pre-School little, there was a
"rest time" during the pre-school day. I vividly
remember picking him up one day and listening
to him tell me about 'rest time. ' He told me
that he did not sleep like the other children. Instead,
he just shut his eyes and said: "I joked 'em."
We have quoted this phrase in our family
a bazillion times over the years when
other "joked 'em"moments have occurred.
And. There have been many.
These are paintings by the Spanish
painter and sculpter, Joan Miro...
...trained in Barcelona.
(Hang with me here!)
Years ago when we traveled to Spain with my parents,
Steve, Bev, Rick, and Deb, we saw many of Miro's
creations. My father, being the modern artist-at-heart
that he is, promptly came home and began creating
works of glass inspired by Miro.
I'm sure you can see the resemblance of this glass
mobile, made by my dad, to the paintings of Miro.
What I found hilarious, and have never forgotten
was sitting on the floor with little 'pre-school Ty'
looking up at this mobile. We looked. And, we
looked some more. And then he very seriously
said "It's too bad Grandpa ran out of orange glass."
I said: "Yeah. He joked us."
I love my Ty boy.
