QuoinMonkey’s photo earlier this week of Spoonbridge and Cherry, 1985-1988, which came out in red Ravine post “White Elephants on Art,” reminded me of a fascination I once had with spoons. Their shape and size, the way they have a roundish end and a straightish end. How they are made to fit into other spaces.
Spoons. I like spoons. I prefer spoons to forks and knifes. If I were stuck on a desert island with only one of these utensils, I might just choose a shapely spoon. I could dig.
