Goin' Nowhere

I lived in L.A. for about 8 years and met quite a few Actor/Model/Waiters who were going to become famous, they told me. They would talk about all the possibilities and movies they had a chance to be in. The other thing they would keep saying was, that if they really wanted it, they would one day, make it. I always thought that it wasn’t how much you wanted it, because there are quite a few people out there who wanted it, and never got it. People tend to focus on the arrival point and forget to enjoy the moment. It would be like focusing on a goal while playing soccer. Lord knows how rare it is to score in soccer! The fun is all that happens during the game. The attempts at scoring, the blocking etc… If you score that’s great, but it isn’t the only thing going on, during the 90 minutes of a game. If you really enjoy and focus on the “now’, that’s how you eventually get somewhere, and if you don’t, at least you had fun while trying.

We use the finest wood available. The wood is given a look of forged, hammered metal. It looks like an old pewtered mug one would find in an European castle. The frame will fit well with a contempory environment or a traditional home. The finish is neutral with a width of 2 5/8" and Rabbet 5/8".
