Taliesin, June 18, 1957.
This is a condensed version of an interview that can be found here for free: www.myfamilymemoirs.com. The video was split into several segments and rearranged to shorten what was originally 14 minutes.

"No man is free who is afraid. And he is afraid until he has developed the certainty that comes from a creative life and a creative role in life by way of art, religion, and science." - FLW

"Mediocrity is always dishonest. You may not think that is a true statement, but let's go it the other way around and say dishonesty is always mediocre."-FLW

"Why have we denied and gone against every fundamental principle that we found our forefathers—or would have found if we studied it—declared as freedom? I can't understand it, unless it is that all our standards are so mixed, like our blood, that we have lost sight of anything straightforward, clean, true, and original."-FLW

Refinishing a Frank Lloyd Wright house - 1st Coat Sikkens Cetol 1
It took us months to decide what to do with the parts of the home that needed refinishing. Should we use the latex like paint that the house was painted with in the 90s? The original Monsanto product was taken off the market as carcinogenic. As much as it would be easy to just paint the house in as close a match to the existing as possible, Janet and I longed to have the wood grain come out as we had seen on many of the other Frank Lloyd Wright homes we visited. After determining that the Sikkens polyurethane finish should last as long if not longer than latex, we decide to take the plunge. The fact that the preparation is three times as long and the painting three times as long didn't play in the decision! We're doing this for fun, I keep telling myself. And so far it has been. This is the first coal of Sikkens, Cetol 1. Today I'll take off work for 1/2 a day and put on the second.
