|"... - a feeling of much space. It is a very beautiful world." 1942 Georgia O'keefe in a letter to Arthur Dove|
Pictures from my bike ride last Sunday. The trail pictured above meanders through neighborhoods along the old sugarpine railroad trail. At the outermost part, where the city is still somewhat sparse, the foothills are still visible from the bike trail. My hometown just approved a measure to further develop the bike trails and bike lanes. Yes!
When my parents first moved to what was then the outskirts of the city, I could walk in the fields near my home and view those same foothills and mountains in the above left photo. The fields are now homes and shopping centers, but my fond memories of those walks with my dog still remain.
I've spent the week reading O'keefe's biography. I can understand her love for the foothills and the ever-changing landscape.
