Favorites? / by Conor Edwards

For my new website, I was recently asked to delineate a few of my favorite pieces. And I had a hard time of it.  I enjoy all of my pieces on varying levels because they each, in their own way, taught me something: about themselves, about the art, about engineering, about looking and perhaps most importantly about thinking. I find it a difficult task, made harder by the fact that I may see something new every time I review them to fulfill the goal in this process.

Perhaps it is the word favorite. Maybe that is the restrictor here. The implication is the best, precious, something to cling to, favored. What if instead of favored there was a list of Today’s Specials? Or given my lack of propensity for writing often- Weekly Specials. What do you think?

Let me know,
