“All that you are seeking is also seeking you. If you sit still, it will find you. It has been waiting for you a long time.” -Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA: I’ve left her behind time and again, but I always return. Whenever I’m away too long, I miss the city dearly. Recently, I heeded Clarissa Pinkola Estes’s advice and hopped aboard an airplane and sat very still. Within two hours I was magically transported back to the land of my birth. The City of Lakes awaited me with open arms and glorious weather. I snapped hundreds of photos, a few of which I’d like to share with you.
Coosje van Bruggen and Claes Oldenburg’s iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
What sculpture–comprised of aluminum, vinyl, plastic, rubber, lightbulb, and cord and completed between 1964 and 1971–literally sucks? Why, it’s Claes Oldenburg’s “Vacuum Cleaner,” currently on display at the Walker Art Center. (Photo credit: Jeff Lovrencevic)
No trip to Minneapolis would be complete without a visit to the award-winning Hell’s Kitchen. Here is a chandelier you’ll find on your way down to the dungeon . . . ahem, restaurant.
