Norman Rockwell painting inspires him
Moseley has bought only one painting in his life. It's
a Norman Rockwell print that he bought when he and his wife visited
the Rockwell Museum in Philadelphia. It shows an elderly man painstakingly
crafting a cradle and chair in his woodshop.
When the Moseleys moved to D.C., he wanted to hang the
print in his office. Kathy didn't think the picture matched the motif
of the room, but then again, it wasn't exactly Dogs Playing Poker, so
on the wall it went.
"It's a grandfather making a cradle for his granddaughter,"
says Moseley. "He's just very diligently working. Nobody is paying
any attention to him. But someday, somebody will be the beneficiary
of that cradle and chair."
Does he see his own grandfather, and even himself, in
"Absolutely. All the time. What we leave for the
future is what is important," he says.
"It's not what we do here and now. The important
legacy is what we do for our next generation, whether it's your children,
or grandchildren, or even for somebody else's children. That represents
the real legacy we create."
