Just wanted to report I've received the catalog. It's not hyperbole to say I'm speechless -- and breathless. I know my emotional reaction may be unique, and when I look at it I'm looking at ...a piece of Walter. A beautiful piece of Walter that is going to last, that is going to exist, that no one can demand it be "taken down" or erased from the world. It's here. He's here.
But I also see all the care and heart that the Julien's folks put into this, wanting to make it the very best they could. Maybe because I was involved with the process, and saw their devotion and refusal to compromise, but looking at this catalog I find that very moving as well.
More later, maybe, after I wrestle my emotions into a more socially acceptable form`
