The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Walkers and The Capitol

I cannot help fearing that men may reach a point where they look on every new theory as a danger, every innovation as a toilsome trouble, every social advance as a first step toward revolution, and that they may absolutely refuse to move at all.
Alexis de Tocqueville

Alexis-Charles-Henri Clérel de Tocqueville (29 July 1805, Paris – 16 April 1859, Cannes) was a French political thinker and historian best known for his Democracy in America (appearing in two volumes: 1835 and 1840) and The Old Regime and the Revolution (1856). In both of these works, he explored the effects of the rising equality of social conditions on the individual and the state in western societies. Democracy in America (1835), his major work, published after his travels in the United States, is today considered an early work of sociology and political science.

Girl playing and The Washington Monument

Colombia is Passion. Musical performance by Verny Varela Orch. at The Lincoln Memorial



When you think of Colombia, hearts don't immediately pop to mind. Coffee beans, perhaps, or maybe that other "c" word, but not necessarily valentines. However, as part of a new tourism campaign, "Discover Colombia Through Its Heart," the country is planning to spread the love with an exhibit of heart-shaped sculptures sprinkled around Washington.
To illustrate the idea that "Colombia Is Passion!," 47 fiberglass creations of varying designs will be installed in such areas as Georgetown, Adams Morgan, the Mall and Union Station.
The exhibit runs Sept. 5-15, then moves to New York Sept. 22-28, 2009.
