How far you go in life...


 
Browsing through old photographs, I found some I shot two years ago at the Botanical Garden in St. Louis, one of the best in the nation.  The quote below is from George Washington Carver, a fellow who, born into slavery, has chosen the path of education (read: enlightenment) to become a brilliant scientist and inventor.  




























And why is it that any time we see anything that slightly 
resembles a shelter we feel the urge to enter it, to be part of its peace, of its promise?  The picture below shows a gazebo in the Shaw Park, part of Botanical Garden as well.  

Every time I visit the Park somehow this gazebo finds itself in my path.
