"These are the days of miracle and wonder." - Paul Simon
137 - Stargazer
This is a lyric from the opening track on Paul Simon's landmark Graceland album. The words were not specifically about Simon's African experience, but more about his own observations that life is filled with so much potential (days of "miracle and wonder") but also so many challenges. In a Rolling Stone interview, he explained, "'That's the way I see the world, a balance between the two, but coming down on the side of hope." This beautiful tile is a bold tribute to hope everywhere.
