This month’s raft was difficult — 
Difficult to construct, 
with multiple figures in the water, hanging on,
difficult to deal with the subject,
difficult to feel.
The base is layered with roped logs
on a seaweed texture then topped with bark.
A mother reaches to pull up her child 
who grasps the braided rope of the raft
On another part of the raft 
this man…
…holds onto a rope
that might pull his family up.
Seen from above (as we would in a gallery)
this would be awfullydifficult for them.
