Peace Out.

I know. Hot sign, huh?

Yes. It's Thanksgiving time which means one thing: I get to visit Maya Lin's Peace Chapel back in my hometown of Huntingdon, PA. This year (Here's last year.) we'll try something a little different . . . BAD CAMERA WORK. In a semi-inspired moment I used the video function on my little crappy camera. I've no cinematography skills, but mad heart. Work with me on this one, kids. Just turn your heads to the side when necessary. Follow me, and remember that I don't do this for a living. For that we can all be thankful.

Oh. Wait. Blogger is having a bout of Hooverdom, and I can't upload my video. So, just like old times, here's some photographs.

What's with the new sign?
Please tell me the poetry stone is still there.
So sad I missed my usual trek out.

The poetry stone is not only still there, but it looks like they've given it a good cleaning. Remember how difficult it was to read? Not anymore.

i discovered the chapel this summer while i was at a conference at juniata. i took a break in the middle of the conference while i was probably supposed to be doing something else and hiked up there. it was lovely, and just what i needed. i'm surprised and pleased to know that you know it!

CBK. I'm happy I know about it too. Very cool to find other fans out there. Truly amazing space, the way it frames the view from the inside out.
