Shining Freedom sculpture catches fire!

During my recent walk around Coronado, I came upon a dull, lifeless metal sculpture standing at the center of a small park. But then a rising sea breeze moved the nearby trees. The sculpture began to slowly turn. I stood in one place, snapping a few pics…

  1. How amazing! Creativity is expressed in so many ways. I think we need it as much as food and water. It connects me to something I find difficult to describe. If it were a feeling it would be wonderment, bliss or even transcendence. No, not on drugs. Life is high enough.
