Day 224: Something Beautiful—Leonardo’s Last Home

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

Paris. Paris in  a month. Close enough to lure my visions away from Alaska. A pattern seems to be emerging in this last chapter of my life. Always be within the orb of an adventure—either planning it, living it, or remembering it—and begin again. I am grateful to be weaning myself of the last frontier. If I did not have Paris to anticipate, I would certainly grieve those vistas too large to imagine.

Now I think of the architecture in Paris that rivals Alaska’s scale in a different kind of beauty. Exquisite buildings. Searching for treasures like Ste. Chappelle, I came across this image by David Constanti. St. Hubert Chapel. Located in Amboise (France) contains the tomb of Leonardo Da Vinci. Splendid composition and uniquely beautiful — Composition splendide et d’une beauté unique.
