Why is Mike Seaver Staring at That Wall?

I was promised a conference call with Kirk Cameron, and I am almost sure that isn’t going to happen.  As I was attempting to follow-up on that promise by searching the Facebook page of Monumental for information, I ran across this odd picture of Kirk Cameron staring at a wall–through some glass.  I hope he finds
