Weekly Photo Challenge: Structure

I’m gonna show my age and admit that when I hear the word “structure”, I can’t help remembering Madeline Kahn in Paper Moon telling Tatum O’Neill that she’s got good ‘bone struck-cha’. 

How my sisters and I giggled over that line!

I do love the resilience of ancient structures, man-made…

…and natural. 

I wonder what structures will crumble in my lifetime, and which will remain for my children’s children. What kind of masonry am I working on now? I work for a Land Trust. I like to think I’m working on building a network of green space that will resist development…forever. 


Weekly Photo Challenge: On or Off the Grid?

To grid or not to grid?  That is the question.  Grids are man-made structures, frameworks onto which we hang our systems – and sometimes hang ourselves, I think.  They are made of straight lines and intersections, rigid and often unforgiving.   They can be useful…or they can take over and dominate our landscape, our thinking, our creativity.  A wise person knows when to go “off grid”.  Where are you today – on or off the grid?
