Homage day

Dramatic sculpture. Simple concept. Well executed. A curved steel sheet with a cutout-outline, bent at a slightly different angle. Harder to describe than to contemplate.

Sculptor: Xavier Medina Campeny (b. 1943). Title: Homenaje a Martin Luther King. The sculptor is Spanish, from Barcelona. The piece was a gift from the 1992 Summer Olympics host city (yes, Barcelona) to Atlanta, the host of the next Summer Olympics, in 1996. [If Wikipeeee is correct.]

Being judge-y

This is a ho-hum photo of commercial decorative art, yet somehow it catches the eye. Still: it’s ho-hum also.

On a personal note: trying to stay calm in advance of tomorrow’s voting.

Delayed post

I did pick a picture, massaged it. Thought it over-saturated, yet interesting. Couldn’t figure out what to write, and was tired, so I just went to bed.


We will stay warm

You may be wondering if I put that leaf there. I did not. Serendipity touched my day several times in joyous ways—like this pretty leaf in an artistic location.

However, the weather is changing and tomorrow may be more slog than serendipity. I’ve been braced for this for several weeks, and now it’s coming.

Spectral colors

Behold: dispersive optical prism wavelength spectrum. If I have the jargon correct.

Believe it or not

Darned close to true color.


Special exhibit

We “did” culture today. [Better in person.]

Great hands. And the mini-hands show almost 4:30. PM, I assume.

GA to KY, and beyond

Once again, I create a post while the Guru is driving and by the miracle of technology I can upload it for your reading plezhur.

This morning was quiet-with-coffee, then a mini whirlwind of organizing, packing, cleaning, and miscellany. Then, under intermittent rain, we headed into the mountains, where the rain mostly ceased. After a hundred miles or two the overcast disappeared, and the sunset was clear. In Kentucky.

And after I make this post, the plan is to head on into, tahdah, Uh-hi-uh. Yup, northbound, we are.

Topical heterogeneity

Post life

Visual reference/joke*. [Also: yes, overcast and grey-gloomy.]

Bison meatballs ready for roasting, then adding to pasta sauce. Yum.

VA bicycles stop

I remember going through bicycle dos and don’ts in school, Brownies, 4H, plus from parents. In all: stop completely and put your foot on the ground at stop signs. Old curmudgeonly ways, it seems?

* This is a post, eh?
