I fell in love with this sculpture on the grounds of the Bass Museum, Miami Beach.
I took this photo from my Lyft after a very early morning meeting. I see a face in each color.
I posted this photo on Facebook yesterday and a few hours later, my friend from Vegas, Frank Siciliano, replied that the same sculptures are in the desert 10 miles outside the strip.
The artist is Ugo Rondinone.
Frank and his lady Amy.

Why the Trumps are fighting to keep their business secrets.
I’m using my personal blog to express my anger against Bob Mueller. Bill Maher is the only one who had the guts to say it. Mueller failed America. Instead of holding Trump accountable, he left us with bread crumbs. What a big waste of time. Mueller wanted to remain a good guy at the expense of our future.
