Artist's Description

I have long loved the poetry of James Dickey. Early in the morning when I stood by a lake and saw the empty lifeguard chair, I thought of Dickey and his rather ominous poem, The Lifeguard.

I can recall the first time I read it and the ambiguity I felt. I needed and desired to reread the work. During the last few decades it is a work I return to. The title of the poem is a line I “borrowed” from the “the Lifeguard”.

Title from James Dickey’s “The Lifeguard”
