Architecture fills our eyes with man made structures of boxes, spires, and circles.  The creativity of our species rises from the ground and surrounds us with jewels of steel, wood, and brick.  Buildings are characters in our life stories.  They offer shelter for our souls, alter the weather, and hide our deepest secrets.

More beauty in the world than we imagine…

There’s a place, not far from home, where trails go on for miles, turtles and tadpoles mingle, and flowers bloom in all the colors of the rainbow.  It’s a friendly location, where even flies greet you with a “hello and welcome.”  Humans call is the Cincinnati Nature Center, but deer, rabbits, fish, and birds call it home.  Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing with you scenes from this wonderful place.  Enjoy and Happy Easter.

Regardless of the reason these two fearless or crazy (take your pick) men were up on that roof, it was an interesting sight to see.  I guess to some extent, we are all dancing that line of brave or stupid and fearless or crazy.  To think about it further, we are…

No, More Than Once
