Ladies and Gentlemen,

Since very ancient times men have set up a marker, or designated some stone or tree, to hold the memory of a deed or happening far longer than any man’s lifetime. Some of these memorial objects have lived longer than man’s collective memory, so that we know ponder the meaning of a monument, or wonder whether some great stone is a record of human action, or whether instead it is only a natural objective.

There is something that makes us a solid presence, a substantial form, to be the tangible touchstone of the mind, designed and made to endure as witness or record, as if we mistrusted that seemingly trail yet amazingly tough skein of words and symbols that serves memory and which, despite being mere ink blots and punch-holes, nonetheless succeeds in preserving the long human tradition, timer than any stone, thougher than any metal.
