Pretty Brilliant Accessibility

Wow, that's pretty brilliant. 

Stairs and ramp in one.

Love thinking of those with disabilities as part of what we do!  ;-)

Love this view from the bedroom. 

Over the terrace and into the sunset.

Two Flutes Are Better Than One

Beautiful architecture on the side of this building. 

Now, I know there are people that can play two flutes at once. 

The real trick would be to be able to play three! ;-)

Beautiful Building Architecture


Such beautiful pillars on this building in Miami.

Colorful, vibrant, energetic!

Wow, I think I'd like to see a whole building like just like this. ;-)

Beautiful Japanese Pagoda

Japanese pagoda signifying the elements of earth, air/sky, fire and water.

Beautiful integration of stone into natural surroundings. 

Centered, self-reflection, mindfulness, enlightenment, peace. 

You can see this at Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden in Delray Beach, Florida.

Majestic Architecture of Department of Commerce



Some beautiful architecture at the Department of Commerce. 

The Herbert C. Hoover Building (HCHB). 

They don't make them like they used to. ;-)

Israel 2020: Day 5

Went to the Holon Design Museum (south of Tel Aviv) today. 

They had exhibit called States of Extreme.

I found some really cool exhibits and ideas there.

Sort of felt my mind being expanded by it, which is I suppose one of the purposes of going to this. 

Two of my favorite from today:

1) The chair with people legs and 

2) The Fanuc robotic arm feeding the baby in the crib.


Hope you enjoy these as much as I did. 

And Shabbat Shalom to everyone from the Holy Land!

Plea For A Wireless World

If anything screams wireless...

There has got to be a better way.

One day people are going to laugh their heads off at they way we did technology.

D.C. Living

I can't believe this home is in Washington, D.C.

More like Florida.

All we need is a palm tree or two.

Plus a little pool in the back. 

And we're good! ;-)

Around The Corner

Thought this was a better design for a corner on a building. 

While I still don't really like the plain cinderblock underneath...harsh, boring. 

The colorful, Jenga-type pieces stacked interestingly on each side makes a nice inviting presentation. 

So I guess you would say this is an acceptable way to cut corners. ;-)

Beautiful Architecture, Washington DC

Check out this beautiful exterior architecture.  

This fine exquisite pattern is all around this building by Metro Center. 

I think this must've been restored over the last few years, because I don't remember it being this colorful and awesome in the past. 

Civilization can still create some amazing works...whether technology, medical cures, and even beautiful pieces of artwork. 

Now we just need to proceed with the positives of creativity and productivity without destroying ourselves with indifference, dysfunction, and mismanagement in the process. ;-)

Amazing Cuban Art







I never knew about Cuban art until we visited Cernuda Arte gallery in Coral Gables, Florida.

They treated us like royalty and gave us a personal guided tour of two buildings filled with works by Cuban artists still at home in Cuba and here in exile. 

This was better than many museums that I've been too. 

I just want to thank the gallery owners and our guide for a wonderful showing and tell them how impressed we were with the art there. 

Even while the Cuban people are repressed by their dictatorial leaders, there is so much of interest in Cuba: from their colorful colonial architecture to their cool "oldie cars", renown cigar smokes, some pretty talented artists, and I'm sure much more. 

Cuba is only 485 miles from the USA!

I pray for the freedom of the Cuban people. ;-)
