Day 120: Something Beautiful—Armstrong Chapel and TED

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

The Armstrong Chapel in Indian Hills—southern Ohio, where it is as green as Wisconsin is grey. Even in the waning light of the day, it is technicolor after a week in visual limbo.

Sixteen hours on the road gives a person time to think. Big thoughts. Meaning of life thoughts. During those journeys, I listen to that which stretches my thinking. Inspiring listening. One lovely coincidence on this trip that so perfectly aligns with this initiative was the  TED Talk: What is beauty?  Take time to listen—an incredible treatise on beauty’s many facets. Art in its own right to fill your heart and expand your mind.
