I have not read a better appreciation of Frank Lloyd Wright than the one penned more than thirty years ago by Vernon Swaback. Granted that I have become more openly sentimental in recent years, I was brought close to tears near the end of his piece as the enormity of what Wright gave, and left, was evoked and described.
Every apprentice who has spoken has delivered a unique set of recollections and thoughts about time spent at Taliesin and with Mr Wright. Swaback's response to the experience, which like others began at a very young age, bridges for us the inevitable and inescapable chasm between those possessing some form of that experience, and those without. Paradoxically, the passage of time and the appearance, one by one, of these remembrances, brings us closer to, not further from, understanding who Wright was.
