The Kansas City Art Institute
Notable Alumni - Walt Disney, Dennis Hopper, and Marc Davis to name a few.

A strange and beautiful entryway into a world of imagination and creation.

This is a retry from a subject I tried awhile ago.

I have a monochrome image of this as well that I will post soon.

I have been evolving subtly over the past half a year and the one simple element that I have embraced is adding "calm" to my daily. In the forest, I get this way more often than in the city that I dwell in on most days.

Being in nature has become my teacher on living life with goals, and purpose. I suppose each of us in the journey of life go through these mini revelations at some point in our life. For me, I am trying to keep a positive attitude in all situations that come my way. This is not always easy.

I do try.

Yesterday afternoon, I sat in a Kia dealership for an hour and ten minutes patiently waiting for my cars simple oil change. While in the lobby, chaos ruled this space. A total mess of too much noise. There was a vending machine making a loud humming noise, four service men each with loud voices trying to get their customers to spend more money on frivolous "things they found in their car inspections". Three televisions turned on in three sections of the waiting room, all loud and all on different channels. To top it off, there was overhead music being played.

Ironically, through this entire time, I settled down into my book of choice aptly called; One Square Inch of Silence, by Gordon Hempton. Here is a link to his website with the same name; onesquareinch.org/

I realized while sitting in this manmade jungle, that I am indeed, most happy in this life---while in a forest.

Off the Road to Hana on Maui, the magnificent Pipiwai Trail contains a dense, dark path through bamboo forest... an amazing journey through light and dark.

Fingal Head, Tweed Region, NSW, Australia

Fingal Head boasts some of the most spectacular examples of columnar jointing to be found in the whole of NSW. The name "Fingal Head" is actually derived from a fabled Scottish hero who was involved in the folk story surrounding the creation of Fingal Cave in Scotland and the Giant's Causeway in Ireland. The local indigenous Goodjingburra clan's name for Fingal Head is Booninybah - Home of the Giant Echidna: "Booniny" means Giant Echidna. The spectacular columns of Fingal Head resemble the spines of an echidna, and so the Goodjingburra believe that the spirit of the echidna inhabits the headland.

As always, thank you for your visits, comments and faves!
Cheers

As I'm continuing to look back through the last year...I found this one from last April at Ft. Fisher, NC. It's similar to one I posted a few months ago, but a slightly different rock formation for the foreground. The sky really lit up with pink color that morning :)
