Recently at a board meeting of Anywhere Art LLC (which consisted of Rick and I, Becky and the beagles, the other members live out of town and Max was working), we decided the word that best describes who we are when we travel is “thoughtful”. We strive to be thoughtful about the the country we are visiting. We want to learn about new places first hand. Otherwise, we would stay home and not have to pack and unpack.
We try to understand and speak with as many of the local people as we can.
Yesterday, we followed Lindsey, a certified walking guide around Bath. Lindsay explained a lot about the past and present and helped us appreciate and be knowledgeable about what we were seeing.
As we stood in front of the Bath Abbey, Lindsay explained that the sculpture angels climbing the ladders up to the top of the church and beyond were designed by the architect to make the bulding appear taller by directing your eye upward.
One of the thoughtful members of our Anywhere Art group was listening and thing about the climbing angel. She asked, “Why do the angels need a ladder if they have wings?”
Isn’t that a “thoughtful question?”
