Repurposing

I like seeing visual art made from items that were previously something else
four decades later I remember the glass bottle house in Marin
or, the Button car
and broken china garden mosaic paths
I had a friend in Florida who built sculptures out of found materials
I admire that
I like to see beautiful things made from "garbage"
it seemed like a gift to me
could be someone rebuilding an old house into something wonderful
I like to see others doing this
it seems right to me 
perhaps because I often feel driven to transform wreckage into something better
had some bad luck?
bit of a disaster?
crashed into a big fat wall?
how can it be transformed?
