This piece brings back two memories. One, when I was a young craftsman, living the single life in Santa Monica. I took a four month break from the day to day vigors of earning a living to wake up late, play tennis with my neighbor, play with the Cleopatra pinball game I had plunked into my kitchen after the arcade switched over to mostly video, and built this piece in my one car garage studio. Well, this life ended when I decided to enter into my first marriage. What was I thinking?

The second memory is of the time my oldest daughter ran into this piece, violently, carelessly, at the age of about ten or so. It was so reckless it appeared intentional, and it brought on a bit of rage in me. Both of us still recall that moment, now a bit more lightly. She, along with the piece, obviously survived the trauma, and graduated with honors from Stanford University last month. Yes, I am a proud papa.
