My recent trip to Dallas was a short turn around. Doesn't leave much time for exploring but you know I found some time to find a few 'beautiful things'.

Finding Beauty Wherever You Go

There is really not much to see on the short walk from my hotel to the convention center in downtown Indianapolis, but, if you look real hard, no matter where you are, there is always something beautiful to see. A great example is the underpass on the way to the convention center. At first glance,... Continue Reading →
