    "wired" article about how this hoity toity watchmaker (Greubel Forsey) is selling a line of watches with microscopic sculptures by willard wigan. saw an exhibit of his stuff in georgetown a few years ago, and it is truly captivating. this is one of those consumerable items that, if i were a gabillionaire, i would immediately go withdraw $1.5 million from my ATM and head to the closest hoity toity watch store.

    so after submitting a not-likely-to-be-approved proposal to sandy spring museum last week, i've been fixing things up. the legs on the table that broke (when a large body fell on it), the clothes dryer, the dripping sink, and today, one of the blue lights in the yard (soldering a very thin connection). in the back of my head, though, i've been thinking about the next project. a lot. it's already september, and i need to get started cutting before the cold infiltrates the garage and my hands.

    voila! no idea where i'll put it, so i will probably immediately try to sell it, but it will be this gigantic wooden flower-shaped sort of sculpture. petals will follow the numbers of a clock and kind of explode from the ground. the middle will be a giant stamen with links hoops and swirly things at the top. lit, of course.

    psyched to go get some 3/4 inch wood tomorrow. whoo hoo!
