I’m always sad to see summer go, but Fall is truly a beautiful season. Here’s a link to an interactive map, for all the leaf peepers out there.
The 2020 Fall Foliage Map is the ultimate visual planning guide to the annual progressive changing of the leaves. While not perfect, it’s meant to help travelers better time their trips, to have the best opportunity to view peak colors each year.
“Above the Waves” is the title of this whimsical hand cranked wooden dragon sculpture by Cecilia Schiller.
Located in the subway beneath the Rochester Mayo Clinic Marriott, in the James Krom Natural Images gallery.
She’s an amazingly life-sized sculpture carved entirely out of wood. A two hundred and ten pound butternut log, to be exact.
Sculptor Fred Cogelow, of Willmar, Minnesota, took six months to create her. Completed, she weighs in at 62.5 pounds after being hollowed out to prevent cracking.
She currently stands in the subway beneath the Marriott at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, in a gallery with equally impressive works of art.
She can be yours for a sum of $157,000 (dollars), but I have a selfish request.
PLEASE don’t buy her! It would break my heart 💔, and the hearts of those that welcome the pause, she gives us from our worries.
If she has to be bought, let Mayo Clinic be the one 🙏🏻🙏🏻
Playing tourist in my hometown of Chicago, on a spectacularly warm October 🍁weekend.
For the best city view, head out to the planetarium – snap a selfie & then cab it to “da Bean” (or Cloudgate which is the sculpture’s official name)
LUCENT – the sculpture in the John Hancock center lobby, represents the stars in the northern hemisphere – simply gorgeous!
95 stories up (John Hancock building) is the attraction called TILT which allows an unprecedented view of the city by – you guessed it- having the viewing window MOVE out & DOWN 😱. A MUST DO!!!’
Wendella Boats offers an architectural tour, that was the perfect way to spend the warm & sunny afternoon
Until the next time, sweet HOME Chicago 😘all photos & film mine, unless watermarked™)
I hadn’t been back since Hurricane Irma, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Still one of my most favorite places on earth 🌏
Artists take over a 5 story bank building in Berlin, and the results are nothing but astonishing.
Long may Dignity™ reign – 💙✖️💯
