A Day In the Gardens of Taliesin

Took in some VERY interesting volunteer time yesterday... Worked in the gardens at Taliesin... A memorable day, and I'm invited back, which is a certainty if I'm in the area!

"When I see architecture that moves me, I hear music in my inner ear." - Frank Lloyd Wright

"Music and architecture blossom on the same stem—sublimated mathematics. Mathematics as presented by geometry. Instead of the musician’s systematic staff and intervals, the architect has a modular system as a framework of design. My father, a preacher and music teacher, taught me to see—to listen—to a symphony as an edifice of sound. All my lifetime I have listened to Beethoven—especially—as the master architect of all time: the most profound student of Nature known—one whose inspired imaginative resource is beyond comparison. I am grateful to music and to him for genuine refreshment in architecture—my field of creative endeavor. Dissonance will take care of itself." - Frank Lloyd Wright
