Friday Photos: IChing No. 59 Dispersion

26 May

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:

Friday Photos: IChing No.4 Youthful Folly

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.

Thicket, Cumberland Gap National Park

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”.

Global Style

Emily Henderson’s (HGTV Design Star) blog post on “Global Style” reminded me of my grandmother!

Mam-ma Tuggle taught elementary school then traveled to the far corners of the world with teacher’s groups on her summer vacations from 1964-1990.  MDT’s living room was a treasure box of images and objects from her travels…Europe, Philippines, Japan, South America, Alaska, Greece, Australia, Canada, Central America, Caribbean, Hawaii…

Thank you Emily Henderson for naming this style, which sometimes feels like Pier One but is not.
