a little adventure…

Oh Arkansas, your beauty captivates me.
IMG_3855Those are words I never thought I’d say, but there you have it. I have been mystified by the beauty that is the northwest corner of the ‘natural’ state. If you have ever entertained the notion of Arkansas as a desolate mountain-scape, you might be right….
but you’ve got it wrong.

FullSizeRenderI could go on for days about the beauty that is the Arkansan Ozarks, which is unfortunately how long my stay lasted in the lovely city of Cave Springs. *Sigh*. I could’ve spent a lifetime. I wish could put into words the simple, but immense, pleasure derived from driving those winding country roads.

And the sounds of nature.
Not on a CD.

And the stars at night.
Oh yeah.


Did I mention the surrounding food, shopping and culture?

Art lovers: You’re going to want to plan a trip to the Crystal Bridges Museum. Trust me on this one. This piece by Tom Wesselmann and entitled Smoker #9 was one of my favorites.


They say that in the country life moves at a different pace, but time sure doesn’t!
My visit seemed to end just as soon as it began.

What’s a place you visited recently that made your heart sing?
