Glass in Greens and Golds

and Beyond, the Arboretum

and Beyond, the Arboretum

The doors of the University of Wisconsin – Madison Arboretum are panels of stained glass deeply tinted in greens and golds. And I love that you can see just the hint of the natural world through this colorful portal. As for the choice of colors . . . green and gold remind anyone of a certain National Football League team?

I’m just sayin’ . . .

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.
