Hopeful Art And Historic Architecture

I try to take walks every single day as time and schedule permits... I look for places I'd like to take walks around. Historic neighborhoods are like an outdoor Art Gallery to me. There was so much character and design in the old ways of building, attention was paid to details... a Thatched roof, grand Columns, Gingerbread Wooden trims, interesting entryways, wrap around Porches, detailed walls and fences, actual Art on the facade elements of a building... the list goes on and on of the architectural elements sadly lacking in many of today's cookie cutter subdivisions and stark Commercial buildings and Schools. If you're going to build something, why not make it aesthetically beautiful?!

I also enjoy finding new Parks to stroll around and I found one that was dedicated to and for Cancer Survivors, filled with Hope, Art and encouraging informative plaques along the pathways. Along with Beauty... Hope, Art and Encouragement are wonderful aspects of Life to surround ourselves with... they do indeed have Healing Energy and restorative powers to the body, mind and Soul. May your day be filled with Beauty, Hope, Art and Encouragement this day and every day thereafter... Dawn... The Bohemian
