Visiting Dick’s Wife
In the October 05 residency I went to visit Ruth, Dick’s wife, to tell her about the sculpture. My instructor Charlotte Hastings came with me. While there I took this photograph.
I was told that this is the chair where Dick corrected the packets for the ADP program. To me this chair is as much a photograph and a part of Dick as a picture of his face.
This is the beginning of searching for the spirit of Dick Hathaway.
While there, Charlotte told Ruth about the sculpture. I held Ruth’s hand and promised I would try to do him justice. I think I heard her say, “I know.” Her eyes twinkled, we both cried.
