The Barrier

The Barrier

“I’m woven in a fantasy,
I can’t believe the things I see
The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall…
…It rises now before me,
A dark and silent barrier between,
All I am, and all that I would ever want to be”
–from “The Wall” by Kerry Livgren and Steve Walsh

The Wall

“I’m woven in a fantasy, I can’t believe the things I see.
The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall.
And with each passing day I feel a little more like something dear was lost”
–from The Wall by Kerry Livgren/Steve Walsh of Kansas.

Architectural EKG

Architectural EKG

An architectural EKG on the East Side of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  I walk past this building on the way to the library from my home at least once a week. Yet in all that time, I don’t think I’ve ever noticed the angles of the roofline.

A Place to Sit 3

“Inspiration is highly overrated. If you sit around and wait for the clouds to part, it’s not liable to ever happen. More often than not, work is salvation.”

A Place to Sit 2

“The human body has two ends on it: one to create with and one to sit on. Sometimes people get their ends reversed. When this happens they need a kick in the seat of the pants.”
–Theodore Roosevelt
