      WEIRD.  Did you ever see his little painted cabin?  That was a TRIP and a half.

        took me to Shearwater Pottery when I was a kid and I got to see it long before anyone knew of him outside of the local area. She did her Ph.D dissertation on him and was the first to catalog his work. I was in love from then on. It's his utter weirdness that made me love him. Tied himself to a tree on Horn Island to really experience a hurricane and then untied and moved to the other side of the tree after the eye passed...you know...just to see what that was like. Casually rode his bicycle to Pensacola to visit his friend. What a man!!
