"An idea is salvation by imagination."

One of my favorite lines in Brent's films is from Paulina Hollers "God builds like Frank Llyod Wright. You can marvel at the complexity, the ingenuity and occasional beauty but we are by no means sound. We're not even weather proof." This makes rounding out the day at Taliesin, Frank Llyod Wright's studio and home in Spring Green Wisconsin, a perfect experience. The compound was actually closed but we were lucky enough to find the nicest Wright Fellow ever, Floyd, who took us around on a mini-tour of the main house (pictured nestled in a hillside). After wandering around the grounds and seeing all of the architect's visions I realized that Brent and Wright are very similar spirits, going after beauty with everything they have at hand, disregarding the legacy but becoming a part of it in a sense. The detail and patchwork are all part of the process and wonder, it really made me appreciate what Brent does on a greater level and he seemed so at home in this hand built masterpiece.


We ended the day where we started, at Mike & Holli's home in Chicago (pictured & adorable!)! Today, filled with homes and splendor, made me even more excited to rebuild Leonard Wood's home in Louisville this Spring! So excited!  For now though, zzzzzzzz.....
