Covered Bridge (Parke Co IN)

8 Nov

Turkey Run State Park hiking trail (foot traffic only) AKA Narrows Covered Bridge

Modern concrete bridge directly behind the original covered one (notice the arches).

Built in 1882. The purpose of covering the bridge was to extend the life of the wooden supporting beams (safety).

Perfect souvenir? circa 1985

11 Oct

Needlepoint canvas purchased in France

“Margot, Creations de Paris.  LE CASTEL d’apres Laura”

Yes, this canvas was well within my budget for a souvenir from France in 1985.  The merits also included being light weight, easily packed and a remembrance of travels while needlepointing.  The problem is… it is still unfinished in 2017…over 30 years later!

I’m back to work on it with great lighting, a support frame and good seating.

The most beautiful examples of “dispersion” (I can think of) are the stunning Chihuly glass sculptures displayed through out public gardens.  These photos were taken in Dallas in 2012.

For more examples of “dispersion” of art in the garden:

5 May

“Youthful Folly” is Wilhelm’s translation, which also includes “hopeless entanglement” in the text.  I appreciate David Hinton’s translation of “thicket” as a concise visual.  I found this thicket on my walk in the woods.

Clinch Mountain overlook (Obviously a favorite photo…see header)

David Hinton translates hexagram No. 2 as “Earth”.  Wilhem translation is “receptive”.  Other translations include “field” and “flow”.
