Telepathic Tricycles . . .

Back in October in these blog pages, a piece under the title of "Found Art" shows a rather flat tricycle hanging on a door which I photographed in 1987 in Pennsylvania ; and which led to meeting someone who has been a friend ever since. In July, 1999 near Cahors, France, it was another tricycle hanging provocatively in view from the road as a sign of sorts that led me to stop and discover another artist. . . Bertrand Chenu, the keeper of the Museum of the Absurd, or in French, le Musée de l'insolite. An Ali Baba's cavern of the miraculous, the magnificent in the mundane, the immortal imagination of a true magician when it comes to taking objects from all walks of life and transforming them into unforgettable masterpieces of mythic proportions. Don't miss it ! And if you can't get there physically in the immediate future, at least take a look virtually on the Museum's website here. And thanks for that titanic tricycle Bertrand ! ! ! In my dreams I will be riding it through a starscape to the land where the wild things are. . .

For some reason it makes me think of The Headless Horse. Do you remember seeing the old movie/TV show on the old Walt Disney Show? I read the book, but don't know if you ever did.
