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

“If you are bitter, you are like a dry leaf that you can just squash, and you can get blown away by the wind. There is much more wisdom in forgiveness.”
–Vusi Mahlasela

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.
