Gorgon



            In Greece, there is a statue, fully white with two men trying to walk through a wall.  It is believed that statue has its own mysterious story.  Long ago in Greece, there was as gorgon named Medusa.  Medusa was a very powerful monster.  She would never take no for an answer.  One day she told these two men from the village to do something for her.  The two men did not agree to do her work.  Medusa could not digest the fact that they said no to a person like her.  Right when the two men were about to walk through the door, Medusa froze them with the snakes on her head.  That statue is still alive and is at the museum in Australia.  Nobody knows if the story is a myth or if it is true.

THE DOG  
           
As I was walking down the street, I saw an old, beautiful, brown dog laying on the grass. I went over to see if the dog had a collar with its name on it, I could not see one.  The dog looked worried, lost. I took my camera out, took a picture of the dog and posted it on the walls.  I was getting ready to take the dog to the vet, when it suddenly started to breathe heavily. Before I knew it, the dog had died, right there on the spot. I was heartbroken, but I buried him all the same. The news is still hard to hear and even harder to forget about.

The Giving Tree  


            I hated New York. Its litter, constant pollution and the fact that no one else cared. No one else helped the problem. I had enough, I was going stop it. 


About thirty years ago, I built a symbol in Central Park. The Giving Tree, that is what I called it. It took me roughly 20 years to build it.  The Giving Tree is a big hand with a tree in the middle.  It represents the Earth, in our hands and how we should take better care of it.  I want people to learn about taking care of our environment because if we do not, Earth will not last long.
