Monday, the start of a new week. Let’s start something new, purples that aren’t flowers. Apparently there are lots of purple flowers and as I mostly shoot nature, it’s more difficult for me to find other purples. However, this part of Chicago’s WNDR museum featured a plethora of purple hues.

Ann-Christine has set us the task today of find spots and dots, and shares three examples from the amazing work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, whose ‘Infinity Mirror Room’ Installation we saw at the WNDR Museum in Chicago. As we only had a minute in the room, you can understand my slightly demented look as I strove to both enjoy and photograph what was around me. You know how cool it is when you get several mirrors just right to appear to go on forever? Multiply that by a factor of a million and you might be able to imagine this.

My life is a dot lost among thousands of other dots.
— Yayoi Kusama

But let your eyes rest, look at some other examples and enjoy some random dot quotes.

Bird spots and dots and not of the droppings sort…

Purpose is the thread that connects the dots to everything you do that leads you to an extraordinary life.
— Oprah Winfrey

Prickly desert spots and dots…

Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path. ~Steve Jobs

Frozen spots and dots…

Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation. ~Lois Wyse

And at the other temperature extreme, some almost-boiling spots and dots.

I don’t think Seurat would have been aware of the dots – he would have been aware of what he was trying to do. The dots were an instrument.
— Frank Auerbach

Happy mid-May! I hope wherever you are that you’ve gotten at least one vaccination shot and are able to spend time with friends and family in person.

This house in Redondo Beach really caught my eye, both for its gardens and its doors. This one’s beautiful on a very human scale. I’d live here. Nothing more to say. Just enjoy.

Although this has nothing to do with my photo of the heron, I was SO excited to find when I scheduled this post that WP has finally brought back a way to tell whether you have a post scheduled for a certain day! There’s now a small dot below each date that has a post, whether already out or scheduled. Finally!! My scheduling life has just gotten much easier. Dan, you’ll appreciate my joy because I’ve mentioned this lack to you more than once where we’re commiserating about WP issues. 🙂

Happy Tuesday to all of you!
