About TADA’s Revolution

 

In 2008, after 12 years of sizing pumps, dodging chemical burns, making cleaner flue gas, drawing rotors, chasing spy satellites, and making bigger, better cows, I left the world of engineering.  It was a decision that elicited mixed feelings, but a necessary transition given the relative importance of staving off suicidal tendencies.

 

In my hiatus from cubicle-life, I awakened a long suppressed love for art, and discovered great joy in drawing, crochet, and sewing.  It was shortly after that I also acquired Tada.  Tada was a loveable but heavily tattered bear.  His many adventures had yellowed his dilapidated fur, clouded his eyes with wiggle eye cataracts, and wore his smile down to the stuffing.  Tada had one foot in the dumpster and one foot out, but I decided that I would give this old bear a second chance at adventure for the low price of $2.99 on eBay.

 

I have decided to name my collection of work after Tada because it shares much in common with Tada’s experience.

 

TADA’s Revolution is rebirth.  It represents redemption from the garbage pile; it represents salvation from an ordinary, dreary, monotone reality.

 

Tada invites you to join his Revolution.  Please enjoy your visit!

    I have a TaDa and would love to share his pic…. I may try to ad a pic to my facebook page and leave a link here… i am 64 years old and he has been with me since i was 6 weeks old… him and poodle dog. Teddy Bear has been worn beyond recognition from all his great adventures…. and has truly been blessed by God from all the prayers i said while holding him… This site makes me think of him and how precious he is to me.
