In a way, I am so glad I am not at the park today as I would be missing this brilliant morning on the deck surrounded by The Quartet, a healthy breeze that keeps the wind chimes bouncing, the very loud cardinal, and the morning echoes of traffic and folks moving about. It truly is a pleasant sound and environment.
But, I do miss my Work Wife, the animatronic figure of Edith Deeds that stands about thirty feet away from my tall desk in The Atrium. Visitors love to “push” Edith’s buttons… the buttons encourage Mrs. Deeds to share her story of the carillon tower, her love for Carillon Park, and her passionate devotion to Dayton, Ohio.
There are four windchimes about the deck and each has a slightly different timbre (color) in their tone. Their combined animated sound is quite extraordinary to me. The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a chime! It’s 73-degrees and is expected to only get to 79-degrees by 3:00 PM, just before the rain arrives by 4:30 PM.
I have several projects on which I am working and while I would love to share more about my morning at The Haasienda, that shall need to wait until a good chunk of my research and exploration of items is completed.
Enjoy the world about you and be sure to make it a great day!
