Tuesday’s Thoughts


Today’s thought is brief and yes, it’s another cold-weather exercise for the mind. Keeping those batteries charged is a good thing to do when we spend less time outside. Tuesday’s thoughts center on architecture we drive by all the time. Hit your pause button, stop and view what buildings are around you. See them for more than bricks and mortar. Look at the design as this always reflects what was popular and creative during that time. And if it is still standing, it’s a testament to being solidly built and well-designed. 

So keep your eyes open to the different structures erected in the cities and towns you may travel through today. Be observant to timeless buildings as you buzz around on autopilot. What strikes you as being frozen in time? Johann Wolfgang von Goethe called ‘architecture frozen music.’ When you start to notice this frozen music, it’s an automatic reflex. You begin to view your entire surroundings; you pay attention to what’s happening outside.
