“There is no use trying,” said Alice; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ~ Lewis Carroll
Appreciating Chihuly in Dallas
On my recent visit to the Dallas Arboretum to see the Chihuly glass art installation I found myself transported to a magical world. The over-the-top glass art dropped into the beauty of various natural settings was compelling and challenged my concept of what is possible.
If I didn’t know better, I would have thought I had gone down Alice’s rabbit hole and landed in a world of enchantment: glass water birds nestled in a secret fern garden; Venetian boats filled with glass beach balls ready to float out to sea; huge flowing jewel-colored lava fountains; giant lotus flowers in a coy pond; ice cubes of sea blue glass floating down a rocky stream.
Check out a few of the highlights in my 30 second video, Appreciating Chihuly in Dallas.
