Be a Yowling Creator…Express Your Spirit

Be a Yowling Creator…Express Your Spirit Isaac is a 13-year-old, blue-eyed, blond-haired kid. He’s sometimes shy, but being a yowling creator brings him out of his shell.

The Yowling Creation of John Frame

The Yowling Creation of John Frame Recently I experienced the yowling creation of John Frame’s “Three Fragments of a Lost Tale: Sculpture and Story” and found it both eerie and awe-inspiring.
