a special burn……….

“Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better.”~Henry Rollins

Art of the Architecture

Art of the Architecture

By the light of the Moon

Like all large metropolitan cities, Seattle has it’s darker side, at ground level the beauty seems, in constant competition with the unsavory, usually your attitude decides who wins.

 And, like many other things in life, we only see what we focus on…On this day…my focus was on UP….to the buildings, to the clear blue sky and on this day….Beauty Wins.

The Cobb Building, downtown Seattle (my personal favorite) is regarded as one of Seattle’s finest buildings in the Beaux Arts mode.  The facade features large terra cotta cartouches incorporating a stylized Indian chief’s face in full headdress. These are attributed to craftsman Victor Schneider and were supposedly inspired by the photography of Edward S. Curtis.

As the mist leaves no scar…….

As the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill,
So my body leaves no scar
On you, nor ever will.

When wind and hawk encounter,
What remains to keep?
So you and I encounter,
Then turn, then fall to sleep.

As many nights endure
Without a moon or star,
So will we endure
When one is gone and far.

~Leonard Cohen 

English: Leonard Cohen
