"Did you ever just want to get on a road north and drive until it ends? Just to see how far it would take you and what you would see? I guess that's the role of the artist, isn't it? To supply that wonder. To take someone wistfully to another place; a place unfamiliar but within their own imagination."
Michael McCurdy, who was a friend of The Coracle, and who was the subject of a Friday profile last summer, died quietly some weeks ago. While his obituary may be found online, I would direct the reader to the link provided via the quotation above for a personal appreciation of both his character and his art.
