Are there objects of beauty
that make your heart sing?
If I've learned anything in my travels,
it is that humans are art makers
and they express themselves
with an astounding variety of mediums.
Yet each piece is unique.
When I look at or touch a piece of art,
I think of the artist who made it.
I try to imagine his or her thoughts and emotions.
I feel a connection that transcends time and space.
My heart sings to dreams in silica.
To think that exquisite and fragile objects
are forged from sand in fire
is amazing to me.
Silica to Glass
My heart sings
when I see the imagination of Chihuly
take flight in fire.
To my absolute delight
a Chihuly Exhibit is gracing
the Denver Botanical Gardens this fall.
So last weekend Terry and I took in
the joyful and exuberant exhibit.
A number of Chihuly installations,
large and small,
are dispersed throughout the gardens:
each different, each surprising
in its juxtaposition with nature's inventiveness.
Here are a few more images
of the first large installation we discovered.
If I ever win a lottery,
you know where some of my $$$$$ will be going.
