Lincoln: Now More Than Ever

(This image of Lincoln shows a statue whose upkeep had been neglected, just as our democracy had been. But it also shows Lincoln, his fist clenched in determination to preserve the Union no matter the assaults, much as the country must do today.

So How Many Dimensions Did You Say There Were?

I was exploring the Reach, part of the new additions to the Kennedy Center campus. I looked through the window on the Potomac River side of the building and could see the window in the perpendicular wall, which opened onto what looked like another world. That a figure happened to walk into this mise-en-scène only added another dimension.
