Metaphysical Supply in Washington
In 1995, the Washington Post did an article on me and my gargoyle creations. That article is below.
Jacob works on his Guardian Gargoyle in 1995.
Whisked away from the home I knew and friends and school and abruptly transplanted into a place unknown to me, I was forced to open my young mind. I was ten years old and left to find friends where there were none. None but a tangle of thorny raspberry bushes, a twig of a sorry creek, and an open mind for the moment. It was there that I found comaraderie; a spider, a minnow, a very willing crawdad and the never-ending, babbling conversation of my best friend, that skinny creek.
Here in 1982, Jacob flies back to base after a parachute jump. Jacob was stationed in Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
I gained much strength in character while serving in the US Army in the early 80's. I was a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. After my tour of duty had ended, I went on to do humanitarian work helping Homeless People. I still do this work today.
