Rhythms and Roads

Welcome and happy Tuesday to all! I'm posting to City Daily Photo.

Out and about a bit of this and that making the most of what gorgeous days we have around us.

Stairs and more stairs. Up and down, art at the Minnesota State Fair in the Fine Arts Department. 

In the Fine Arts Building too.

Fast cars!

Do what makes you happy.

Live wildly!

Yes. This. Always this.

"Be around those who crave new galaxies in you.

The light through your veins.

Poetic science.

Wider vision.

Gentler strength.

The moon in your chest.

Gravitational pulls.

Possibility everywhere.

Stars in your eyes.

Expanding horizons.

Something wild.

Something fervent.

Something stunning.

Something divine.

Victoria Erickson

"Let's not travel to tick things off lists or collect half-hearted semi-treasure to be placed in dusty drawers in empty rooms. Rather, we'll travel to find grounds and rooftops and tiny hidden parks, where we'll sit and dismiss the passing time, spun in the city's web, 'til we've surrendered, content to be spent and consumed. I need to feel a place while I'm in it."

(She is so spot on!)

So, what's an inexpensive reusable material to us in building a gigantic Moose? Why cardboard of course!

The Story.

"To be fully human is to be wild. Wild is the strange pull and whispering wisdom. It's the gentle nudge and the forceful ache. It is your truth, passed down from the ancients, and the very stream of life in your blood. Wild is the soul where passion and creativity reside, and the quickening of your heart. Wild is what is real, and wild is your home."

Victoria Erickson

"Everyone returns us to a different sense of ourselves, for we become a little of who they think we are."

Alain de Botton 

Thanks for sharing your time with me.

Take good care of you.

Good morning Jeff, no I haven’t but I’ll have to check it out. I so waiting visit my old stomping grounds before the snow flies again, but not sure it’ll happen this year. Enjoy your day.
