Currently working on my journal from my 3 week wandering in France with my bestie …
~ Cemeteries, Castles, Chateaus and just the day to day “funnies” along the way ..
~ #Lucyandethel wander through history
I spent a beautiful lightly snowy and foggy (early) morning at a gem of a cemetery over looking a beautiful lake. I must say, I was a bit spooked at times as the gates had just opened and there wasn’t a soul (no pun intended) insight. But I thoroughly enjoyed it and wandered for sometime, losing myself in the peace, quiet and fog.
This cemetery was founded in 1871, This quite interesting story began with several New England-born men and women who came to Minnesota around the late 1800’s. These were the men and women that helped to build the city of Minneapolis. They were progressive, enlightened and envisioned this amazing plot of land as a place for the community members to be buried in beauty and tranquility.

If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this like is a wandering to find a home’, why should we not look forward to the arrival

Time to start planning my adventure to Sedona and the Grand Canyon that is just a short 2 weeks away.
A little R & R in beautiful Sedona followed by a hike in the Grand Canyon, a short road trip to Dallas…then a flight home.
The beauty awaits. I have an empty journal and a empty SIM card!
I always dream of my trips to Europe, but I have to say, even though It doesn’t have the architecture that I have come to love, I will have God’s beauty to inspire me!
1). The Seven Sacred Pools, Sedona.
2). Oak Creek Trail, Sedona.
3). Chapel of the Holy Cross, Sedona.
4). The breathtaking Grand Canyon.
It’s been several years since I have been to this area and have wanted to revisit, and now…it is in only 2 weeks.
One of my very favorite sculptures, carved in marble.
Commissioned in 1787 and sculpted by Antonio Canova. The statue entered the Louve Museum in Paris in 1824.
Not to be missed, it is simply breathtaking.
You could also find the second version in Rome at the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg. And a plaster cast version in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
(There are small differences with each piece). I am partial to the original!
The love story is so beautiful as well.
