It is never too late to have a grand passion. I have several….and today it is architecture! I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and was exposed to the magnificent architecture of the city. My interest was renewed when I started writing a second blog, Main Street Rocky Mount, a place rich in history and with a vast architectural inventory. It is more than structures that call to me. “Architecture is the very mirror of life. You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society.” I. M. Pei
I am taken with the work of R. Kenton Nelson (born 1954), an American painter and muralist from California. He has a large body of work that goes beyond these commercial and residential examples, but when I look at his work, I can imagine the beginning of a story…another reason to acquire a passion for architecture.
I heard a noise from the adjoining building. Even the cat, nestled beside me, looked up from where she slept. The sound was implausible coming from the silent and vacant space on the other side of the wall, a welcomed barrier that separates me from any neighbor who tries to interfere with my life and solitude.
