Starry, Starry Night at Mount Rushmore: The Night Vision of Wally Pacholka

Thanks for that Gerard. I've had a few days off and actually have been outside flat on my back looking up at, of all things, the Big
Dipper. (Thanks to my daughter who insisted we sleep out).

The juxtapostion of the celestial with our short historical blip in the history of the world goes hand in hand with your piece, "How beautiful we were".

Beautiful, chilling, sad...

Isn't Wally Pacholka amazing! His photographs leave me breathless. I don't think I've ever seen Mt. Rushmore captured so beautifully. Wally's "Mars and Orion rising over Monument Valley" is my personal favorite, and I would love to have on my wall as a giant mural.

It's 11 P.M. now, as I write this, and 90 degrees at my house, here on the south side of the Texas hill country. Just looking at Wally's snow frosted image makes me feel cooler.

I thought of the Alaskan flag with the Big Dipper. Lovely.
