Richard Feynman talks about the beauty of a flower. Neil deGrasse Tyson describes looking up into the night sky and feeling connected to the universe. While Munari’s books about the sun and the trees bring me joy, the words of Feynman and Tyson in the following short videos, about 3-5 minutes each, reinforce my desire to indulge in exploring the mysteries of this life and to be open to the possibilities. I hope you have a chance to view them.

On the left is the silhouette of the spiral staircase and to the right is its reflection.  Just a lovely play of light and shadows in the hallway.

Water flowed across the asphalt, a broken pipe perhaps.  In the bright light of the day were reflected the reds, greens, and golds of the overarching trees, and the thick dark lines of the neighboring fence.

And nearby a butterfly perched, the brightest one I’ve seen all year.

A small, powerful detail in a corner of the stained glass window, David’s Charge to Solomon, at Trinity Church in Copley Square. A little dark but I hope to work with the image over time.  Meanwhile, learn more about Trinity Church, its history and architectural tours via this link. Have a good weekend. 😉

One of my favorite exhibits at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston is the Endless Repeating Twentieth Century Modernism by Josiah McElheny.  It was installed in 2007.  Over the years, I’ve paused, stared, pondered, reflected before racing on to view whatever show or exhibit I was actually at the museum to see.  Oh, how I have admired the beauty, but only recently have I taken the time to photograph what was before me and to learn more about the artist’s intent, as well as about his creative journey.  As I learn more, mostly what I am fascinated by is how he uses glassmaking as a storytelling tool.

Via the following PBS link you can read more about McElheny and see a short video of him at work.  http://www.pbs.org/art21/artists/josiah-mcelheny

I was standing by the window waiting for them all to take flight and so I nearly missed the one that did.

Cliche but that’s what it was.  These images were taken in the dying of the light, as we exited the Brooks Estate.

That same day there was a glass on the table, and it too filled with light. As you might imagine, it was a very hard day to concentrate. It would have been easy to pull down some shades or find a dark corner, but I do declare, I just couldn’t do it.  I have no regrets even though I had to stay up a bit late to finish some writing assignments.
