My husband and I took a much needed mini vacation last weekend and headed down the road to nearby Arkansas, taking our time and stopping here and there on the way to our hotel. First stop was Eureka Springs, where I did a little bead shopping (Czech glass, yay!) and where we saw two very different deities –
The Christ of the Ozarks, a seven story tall statue high atop Magnetic Mountain that overlooks the town below, and
the Goddess of Feminine Cosmic Energy, also known as Aza, or Adora Zelina Astra. Each was equally impressive in their own way!
As we continued on our way to Bentonville I spotted one of my favorite things to photograph – a fabulous abandoned farmhouse-
It’s hard to explain, but somehow I see a dignified beauty in the skeletal remains of old falling down buildings and always feel compelled to take their picture before they’re gone forever.
After a couple of days of relaxing (comfy hotel bed – yesss!) we headed back home – but on the way out we spent an afternoon at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. I’d heard a lot of good things about it, and they were right – it’s amazing! I’ll show you about that next time – stay tuned!
