Peaceful Buddah

In Laos, we came across this very peaceful temple – the sun shining on Buddah – what more can I say.

Balance is something I inherently strive for in spaces. This is a wonderful example of harmony of space and light. The Lion Fountain was undergoing restoration, but wouldn’t it have been fantastic if there was water flowing from and to those beasts!


Getting Back In The Rhythm Of The Seasons September 25, 2013

Sometimes the best laid plans………. The change of seasons, the start of school – it seems like a good time to get back into posting on my blog.  My plan is to post a picture of a remodel of a kitchen or bath, a fascinating building or relay some pertinent information on remodeling daily.  But today, I found an outdoors picture that is awesome and majestic.

This picture was taken in September, 2005.  My father wanted to see Denali, and so I jumped at the chance to travel with him and maybe get a peek of the peak.  We were blessed with a crystal clear view on our day trip from Fairbanks to Anchorage. I learned later that pilots were circumnavigating the mountain two and three times as it was such a rare day in Alaska.  I hope you enjoy this view as much as I did.

Weathered Barn

Wandering around the grounds of a Bed and Breakfast, I was intrigued by the sturdiness of this structure. It reminds me to think about how we build, how it will weather, and how it will get better with time. The timelessness of beauty.
