Day 116

Launched Ribbon by Dorothy Gillespie

I am not overly fond of this sculpture, but after thinking it over, I believe I would like it more if it were in another part of the city. It is at an intersection that is almost devoid of trees, and there is a vacant building immediately beside it. I think the sculpture would look better in a park setting. Of course, I think everything would look better in a park setting. Why don’t they move it to Columbian Park? It is just down the street.

It felt really good to go out on my own this morning. It has been at least two weeks since I’ve felt up to doing that. I took enough photos this morning that I had trouble deciding which one to use. I’ll be going out and taking new views of at least a couple of the places so I can use them in this blog at some time. I think I was looking at things with a fresh eye this morning. I may also start carrying a notebook to jot down text ideas for the blog. I used my smart phone to take notes when I was in the hospital, but I felt limited by slowness of using one finger to make notes. Also, I was dependent on my memory to add specific phrases to the text. My memory isn’t what it used to be, so I’m sure I forgot a felicitous phrase or two that I had come up with while lying in bed. What a loss.

I’m looking forward to this weekend and the next. Cindy and I will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary (if I have the number wrong, I’ll hear about it). I’m planning one surprise, and I hope it comes off. The following weekend is, I think, the Mulberry Fest in Mulberry, Indiana. I believe we will go to it this year. I like the small town festivals in Indiana.
