    A love letter to Calder’s Lone Yellow which (fret not, lovers!) will come back on view in our expanded building.

Dear Calder mobile formerly hanging in the SFMOMA atrium,
I love you—come back to me! How I long for your graceful welcome stirring quietly in the air currents. How I miss your impeccable balance, your monumental whimsy. You are stately and understated, meticulous and marvelous, peerless in your simplicity and precision and wit. You remind me what perfection means, and in your presence I am both awed and exalted. I should never have taken you for granted. Come back! Please—come back!
XOXO JSV
