{simple pleasures} perdu + trouvé: lost + found

Saturday, June 3, 2017

"make no little plans. they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. make big plans. aim high in hope and work. remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die."
daniel h. burnham

{today's simple pleasures}

perdu + trouvé: getting lost means stumbling upon the unexpected, even while visiting + exploring my hometown of chicago. i happened upon the baha'i temple, a domed structure standing 191 feet tall; from afar, its simple poetry moved me. its milky exterior, made of concrete + quartz, is surrounded by immaculately manicured gardens + blue sparkling fountains. this edifice brings to life a lovely place to meditate, to contemplate + to take in the spellbinding details of an architectural marvel, the oldest surviving temple of the baha'i faith
