Time Flying in Stained Glass (2)

It was a different kind of day. Testing. I was a helper-outer on the second floor  the first two periods.  When I returned to the art room I came down a stairwell I don’t use. The window with the sun coming through. An hourglass with wings?  All those inventors and scientists. I wondered what ones the students would know. It was my prep. I went to the art room and got my camera.  I remember a statue of Howe in Seaside Park in Bridgeport CT where I went to college.  Remembered I lived on Howe St. when we first moved to Pittsburgh. I had to look up McCormick. Cyrus.  And George Stephenson.  Good thing it wasn’t Jeopardy with the category of inventors.  An unexpected find at school today. The hourglass with wings struck me. Scroll down to see the detail shot.
