Something about Spanish moss is strange and romantic to me.  Romantic as in the period, not as in love and romance.  You know, that mysterious sometimes gothic and usually harsh literary period that brought us Coleridge and Shelley (both of them) and the Brontes?
So, I much enjoyed ambling around in this dripping with Spanish moss and studded with pleasing architecture Southern town for the past few days. Downtown it's compact and sophisticated.  It's artsy and smart.  New and old at once, in the way the best cities are.

(Yeah, not real.)

We came to tour the Savannah College of Art and Design with my youngest son.

I didn't take a picture of it, but inside the building where the college tour began there was a gigantic cluster of lightbulbs hanging from the ceiling and dangling from them were small cards upon which hopeful students had written their goals and aspirations.  Inspiring aspirations!  If we could all remain so forward thinking and optimistic, open to experience, original, fresh and wise--wow!  What a world this could be!


  1. Savannah is a gorgeous place and I hear that college is really amazing. Good luck.

  2. I love your first photo - Savannah looks very exotic, and warm! The inspirational light bulb display sounds wonderful.
