by a series of small things

brought together.

Going home, going home By the waterside I will rest my bones Listen to the river sing sweet songs To rock my soul

Going home, going home
By the waterside I will rest my bones
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

Little Fly Thy summer's play, My thoughtless hand Has brush'd away. Am not I A fly like thee? Or art not thou A man like me? For I dance And drink & sing; Till some blind hand Shall brush my wing.

Little Fly

Thy summer’s play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush’d away.
Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?
For I dance
And drink & sing;
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

What is more appropriate than Metallurgy to mount a Metallurgic diploma? Jim Miller's signature formed rod mounts were the perfect solution, and we thought it paired nicely with this Larson Juhl Larson-Juhl frame.

"To be an artist means: not to calculate and count; to grow and ripen like a tree which does not hurry the flow of its sap and stands at ease in the spring gales without fearing that no summer may follow. It will come. But it comes only to those who are patient, who are simply there in their vast, quiet tranquility, as if eternity lay before them. It is a lesson I learn every day amid hardships I am thankful for: patience is all!" -Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
