WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: STRUCTURE

Jen H. says share a photo of the structure of something wonderful.

The Antler Arches in Jackson Hole, WY are great to the marrow.

The antlers are held in place by nothing more than friction and good placement, intertwined like a mega-jumbo puzzle.

 

All of the pieces come from the elk’s annual antler shedding, so no animals are harmed.  Scout’s honor.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: TEXTURE

Soul to soul, artist to viewer, quilters make fabric sing.  The skilled touch of their hands transforms thread into a symphony.  I saw these wall art quilts at an exhibit in Florida and was awed by the tactile and visual texture of the designs.

 

Richly layered and interconnected ridges.
Valleys of batting and cloth.
Creative minds and joy-filled souls.
Contemporarily brilliant.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SATISFACTION

‘May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.’
— Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

 

Grand Canyon, AZ

 

Abbey proposes: No more cars in national parks. Let the people walk. Or ride horses, bicycles, mules, wild pigs–anything–but keep the automobiles and the motorcycles and all their motorized relatives out. We have agreed not to drive our automobiles into cathedrals, concert halls, art museums, legislative assemblies, private bedrooms and the other sanctums of our culture; we should treat our national parks with the same deference, for they, too, are holy places.

 

Edward Abbey

 

The more high-tech our lives become, the more we need nature to provide joy.  Researchers know that overall life satisfaction leads to a longer happier life.  And that’s the most amazing view of all.
