After another week of early mornings, long hours, and international conference calls in the evenings, I needed to visit the coast. I can now add the Indian Ocean to my list of beaches I’ve been to. Being from the Northern Hemisphere, it’s an adjustment getting used to the sun crossing the northern sky. All the same, I was glad I arrived just in time to see the shadows drift out with the waves. The waves were strong and the black rocks were smooth and worn from repetitive tides.

After a day of meetings, I went back to Trafalgar Square to see the National Gallery of Art in London. In the plaza, I really enjoyed seeing the sculptures of the lions and was quite amused with the variety of reactions that other people had towards them. No one seemed to be afraid, except for the few who managed to climb on their backs for a photo, who then worried about slipping of. Some people sat by them, and others were indifferent. There were a few who stood from afar off and admired them. It made me wonder about the figurative lions in my life, and how people treat them.

On occasion, I allow myself to be jealous of those who spend much of their time riding the waves of the ocean. I’d love to be there. The docks at the wharf are a place where mariners port for a time. Before finishing a another chapter of a visit to California, I spent the evening with family at the wharf and I watched as the sky fell over the boats in port.

The gray of the ocean is healing to me, the waves assuring. Marine air wraps around like a blanket, yet it is light like the clouds. I wish I could keep it with me, especially when I am tired or hurt. I think it would make a difference, not being lonely for the ocean, waiting until I can go back.

Sometimes I just like to walk cities. After I walk back, it’s the people I remember most, the scent in the air, moments, views, and fragments. They don’t seem to leave, and I’m glad for it. When you walk a city like this, you have to take the ups and downs to see the real views.

The last few weeks have been filled with unusually long hours at work and some very exciting projects that have occupied nearly all of my time. Honestly, I love it, and I love to run. Consequently, I’m finally posting some of my travels nearly a month ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even when I love what I do, I need time to rest and refresh. I hold onto promises and assurances of a day when the test will be worth it and the race will be behind me. Until then I choose to run for the win. I offer everything I have, hoping it will be enough, because I believe in a perfect day - a day worth waiting for. Until then, I still find destinations like this to remember little things, to appreciate the smallest moments. Perfect moments. “To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel.”

While some are out catching sally others are catching 😴. The Shuk HaBsamim of the old city is always teeming with life, sound, and colors through its multiple veins but every once in a while you find a pocket of calm in the storm.

It was very refreshing to walk around the Gardens of the Johannesburg Temple after an afternoon of meetings. There were a variety of visual flavors - some that burned like fire, and some that quenched. Others just fill my mind with light and hope, full of promise. Life presents interesting patterns of opposites and contrasting experiences, similar to the extremes we face. Somewhere in the middle is the experience that leads to a peace that passes all understanding. Between the moments of contrast, I try to remember there is purpose in the patterns, and I focus on hope.

Locating an original Heinrich Hoffman painting in the Riverside Church was a little more difficult than I expected. After looking around, @lizmcconkie and I inquired and a lady took us to a locked room where there were a couple of large giclées. I did my best to seem grateful, hiding my disappointment that they were prints like those I had seen in other churches. We thanked her and nearly left, when she asked, “Have you seen the Gethsemane Chapel? You can’t leave without seeing all of it.” She led us to a small chapel next to the nave, large enough for a few people to stand in with a kneeler in front of the painting of “Christ in Gethsemane.” It was a simple painting, aged with craquelure. I was glad we hadn’t given up. I wonder how many people have knelt there imagining what it may have been like for Him to kneel in the garden. I wonder how many others have given up before finding the real thing.

Each time I went to The Met, there was an exhibit that pulled me back to see it. The fashion designs of, “Heavenly Bodies,” made a fascinating comparison between a Catholic ceremonial pilgrimage and the runways of a fashion show - both of which rely on metaphor and imagery set in processional motion to music. The designers took inspiration from their Catholic upbringings, and their designs were set in an exhibit hall surrounded by medieval artifacts. It was beautiful, haunting, and sublime all at once. It felt both old and new. The designs were simple and grand. The contrasts were a paradox, and yet it played to the senses in a way that made me wish I could stay after closing.

When I visit a museum like the Met, I tend to do a quick scope of the galleries to get a lay of the land and then go back and visit a few of the exhibits on display. It’s like a visual menu of options, or a sampler plate I use to decide my favorites of the day - the pieces that seem to hold my attention the most in the moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me, creative energy is often fickle and fleeting. Inspiration may appear like birds or something blown by the wind. I try to notice when it happens because my mind will often make subconscious connections. When something pulls me back again and again, I know there is staying power.

On my second day at The Met, I decided to feed my fascination of ancient Egypt with rich encaustic paints, facsimiles and scripts from royal tombs, miniature carved scarabs, and sculpture from limestone, bronze and ceramic.

Visiting The Met is always a must for me, with so much in their collection to feed my creative metabolism, both for image and language. Truthfully, it can also be a bit daunting to stare at the works of master artists over centuries and millennia. Among my friends who consider themselves artists, I’m not aware of any who don’t feel some artistic emptiness at some point. It’s a feeling of inadequacy and enormous lack that bullies the creative mind into believing terrible lies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are times when I look at one of my drawings or paintings I thought was finished, and suddenly I see it differently, as though it were pathetically and poorly attempted. It’s normal. It happens to all of us, and it’s real. The one thing that may be more daunting is a blank wall where no painting resides, simply because it wasn’t even attempted.

On my first of three days of visiting The Met, I walked into this gallery and felt that emptiness. I had hoped to see one of my favorite paintings, only to find out it was on loan and was not in the museum. I felt sad, both consciously and instinctively. The gallery reminded me of frames that weren’t there, and frames that might never be. For a lack of exhibit, it was a very moving gallery.

The realist and idealist that wrestle inside me are evenly matched, but for the slight advantage that I always give the idealist. It’s worth seeing an exhibit like this, but it’s also important to ignore the lies.

Purchasing a ticket from a machine is what you do at any subway stop, but it’s not the same experience as passing through the vaulted ceilings of Grand Central on your way to wherever you want to go. It’s a nostalgic destination that still feels ceremonial, as if purchasing a ticket was paramount to traveling abroad. Waiting in line carries more anticipation because the station creates a unique experience and offers the traveler something in return for waiting.

Walking up to the two vanishing pools at the 9 / 11 Memorial was sobering to me. Different from the monument, the vanishing pools leave suggestive evidence of loss, anguish, and emptiness. My eyes were fixed on the flowers left in the voids of the carved out names and I felt deeply for those who lost loved ones in the tragedy. I believe we feel the hurts of others by comparison. We may begin to comprehend what someone has lost when we too have experienced loss. It’s as if our remembering is added to their remembering, making a memorial greater than it’s materials.

One of the most important sites for me to see on this trip was the 9/11 Memorial. My kids really don’t remember it happening, but I remember where I was when I heard the news that the World Trade Center had just been hit. I remember the emotions of that day, and the quiet air that followed the next few days when airplanes were still grounded. Just adjacent to the memorial is what I could consider a monument. The Oculus, designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, is skeletal structure that feels familial to many of his other monumental buildings in notable cities around the world, this one designed to resemble a winged dove. Whether fully intended or not, I saw it as a monument to freedom, hope, and the resolution of the hard things we face. It feels light, airy, and grand. The reality is that the monument would likely not have been built had the tragedy not occurred there, but what grew out of tragedy is far more beautiful. The Oculus is an impressive transportation hub. When people pass through, on their way to wherever they are going, I wonder what they think of. I wonder how much they stop and take notice. It wasn’t possible for me to simply pass through. In perhaps a different way, I stopped to consciously remember where I was, and remember the emotions of the present day, and then I boarded the train.

Bryant Park is one of my favorite places in New York. By the 1970s the park had deteriorated and was predominantly used by drug dealers and prostitutes. Efforts to revitalize the park culminated in 1988 with a major renovation that resulted in the park becoming the “Town Square of Midtown.” It went from being a non-destination to one of the most densely occupied parks in the world. Thousands of people occupy the park daily, and it is evidence that people love to be around people. The social energy is compelling.

The contrast between life above the streets and everything going on below is intriguing to me. They are two different worlds that meet and intersect intermittently all over the city, overlapping but seemingly invisible to the other. The subway is lined with a support system of columns that keep cadence with the rhythm of the tracks, a reliable constant that allows the fast pace of both worlds.

Architect, Hugh Hardy, made quite an impact on the city of New York, particularly in the theaters at the Lincoln Center and on Broadway. His design teams were responsible for some very elegant and signature performance venues that anyone who has seen a show in New York would likely be familiar with. Certainly these spaces transform when the audience lights go down and stage lights focus our attention, but they are also powerful spaces in their own right.

If you haven’t been to Central Park, try imagining a forested area carved out of a mass of high rises and skyscrapers, half a mile wide and two and half miles long, complete with museums, ponds, fountains, monuments, statues, and a zoo. There are roads for driving and paths for walking, running, and biking. Bridges and tunnels allow for paths that weave above and below. If you have been to Central Park, this should all be familiar, in which case you might also agree that the most fascinating part about the park is the people that fill it.

One thing I loooove about New York City is the pace, the energy, and everything happening all at once. You really have to think on your feet. It’s a different kind of running, and it’s just my style. Different from most of downtown, our temporary Airbnb home in the upper west side was charming and quite a bit calmer. It was like stepping from one story into another. The streets lined with studio apartments were full of character. Everything from the canopy of trees to the ornamental stone to the people and conversations was inviting. Well, almost everything. The evening trash pick up along the sides of the street was temporary. The connection to the Empire City has never gone away.

I visited one more shrine before leaving Hong Kong. The Kwun Yam Shrine is positioned on the south side of the island in Repulse Bay. Statues of Kwun Yam, the Goddess of Mercy, and Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Sea, watch over and protect the fisherman and seafarers in the bay. The guardians remind me of angels that minister and attend to those in need.

Not far from where I’ve been staying in Hong Kong, Man Mo is a small temple built the same year my pioneer ancestors crossed the North American West. It is small and intimate with some beautiful details. I am fascinated with the temple designs of other faiths and religions. There are often unique similarities between them, and I love to see the poetic expressions of devotion. Carved sculpture tells significant stories. Lanterns and statuary honor individuals of influence. Coils of incense spiral upward and the ash that falls downward is evidence of movement in both directions. “Man Mo Poetics”

After a day of meetings, I really enjoy walking the streets and alleys of Hong Kong. They have not only felt safe, but alluring. The touristy places don’t hold my attention like the places more familiar to everyday life for the people who live here - the porch, the deck, the narrow passage between buildings, the private entrance. I love to see how people live, and I seem to always be hungry for the detail that makes personal culture rich. The streets combined quiet moments and conversations with noisier gatherings at shops and corner markets. Here is a tiny taste

My flight from Bangkok was delayed another hour and we didn’t arrive at the hotel until after 3:00 AM. Yeah. Rough night on top of sleep deprivation and jet lag to boot. It’s just routine for international travel. What I could see of Hong Kong was fascinating, but it was limited because many of the city lights were out. This first shot is what I could see in the middle of the night. What I saw the next day made sleep deprivation worth it. Hong Kong is a vertical city and everything is tall. There are amazing views everywhere. The colors that changed throughout the day were fascinating.

These images have been in my head for a couple of days now and I can’t get them out of my mind. Wire management in Bangkok is something of a curiosity to me. I haven’t done much sightseeing on this trip, but I have seen lots of wires like these while traveling to and from each meeting. I love the high contrast, and the variety of each situation. It’s one thing to see it, and quite another to experience.

Spring had a new warmth today. I felt it differently, and I was grateful to sense winter growing more distant behind me. I’m especially grateful to be walking again. It has been six weeks since my hip surgery, and the walking part came fairly quickly. What I least expected is that the pain would be minor in comparison to the emotional difficulty from the surgery, as my body reallocated any spare energy to physical healing. Dark seemed darker, and the sky felt smaller, like it was closing in. Anxiety and depression are awful companions, but I know there are many others who are even more familiar than I. Too often I fear I paint too pretty a picture of my life, both for myself and others. It is extremely hard, but also amazing. I suppose that is what comes of being both an realist and an idealist where the latter is always allowed to win, even if only slightly. Well, today the pretty picture was a welcome one to me. I visited one of my favorite places in the world to offset a few of the darks. Summer may not be here yet, but there is enough promise that I will find it. With winter, it was easy to forget that I am an artist, at least in what I have to show. Perhaps that season will come again as well. I can only hope. For now, I content myself with beautiful memories, and I let the idealist win, if only slightly. What a gift spring is to bridge winter and summer. I still believe in promise.

With time for one last stop, we visited Isa Kahn’s tomb and then the much larger tomb of Humayun, the second Mughal emperor and the great grandfather of Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal. The resemblance between Humayun’s tomb and the Taj Mahal is self-evident. Different from the Garden of Five Senses, the grounds were calmer and more reflective, which seemed to match the lowering sun. We stayed until the grounds were closed and the sun was gone.

India was an experience beyond what words or pictures alone can describe. Its impact has been profound and indelible. The memories I hold, but part of me remains there and keeps me tethered. “Humayun’s Tomb and the Lowering Sun”
