This sculpture is just near the fine foods store and benches I showed you the other day. The work is by Dale Heinzerling and is entitled The Unknown Student. It makes reference to Rochdale, an open-learning type college that once stood on this spot. Unfortunately, like many of the social experiments of the 1960s, it didn't quite work out. But I do like this memorial to the times.
Enjoy Saint Patrick's Day! Drink some green beer and eat some soda bread. I'll always remember five years ago when my husband and I stepped off a plane with our heavy winter coats slung over our shoulders in Jackson, Mississippi. The hot, humid air was a shock after the German winter, but we have enjoyed every minute since.
