ECCE (et chay) Latin for “Behold”

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

“ECCE” (et chay) This award winning mountain house is perched on a bluff 300 feet above the upper Delaware River. ECCE is situated on 60 wooded acres and is in the southwest Catskill region, 90 miles from NYC. Established in 2004, this once private home is now a five bedroom Bed and Breakfast.

How fortunate that I know the owners: Kurt & Alan which makes this B & B that much more of a¬† special destination for relaxing and enjoying the company and wildlife. You just might get the opportunity to see an “American Bald Eagle”.

Celebrate Special Occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and reunions. Ideal setting for a small out door wedding, or even host off site executive retreats.

You will Not be disappointed in a sumptuous country breakfast, WOW!

You will discover this experience to be a very personal and a  long remembered treat.

*ECCE is only 15 miles from the “Bethel Woods Center” for the Arts.

“Shidoni” Foundry*Gallery*Art Services

One of the greatest resources available for sculptors and art collectors is located five miles north of Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the village of Tesuque (te-soo-ke).

Shidoni, a bronze art foundry, sculpture garden and gallery is situated along the Rio Tesuque on a former apple orchard.

The Bronze gallery is opened daily. Bronze pours are held on Saturday only, and when scheduling a visit make sure you don’t miss this opportunity…I found it very interesting to watch molten bronze being poured into ceramic¬† shell molds.

Take a picnic lunch and sit among the sculpture garden, and then stroll around each sculpture, you will find this very inspirational.

The gallery represents 100 different sculptors from all over the country. Make sure you don’t miss this when you are visiting “Santa Fe” New Mexico.

The Bronze Pours are Held on Saturdays only.

“Codorus State Park”

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

Codorus State Park  is located in the Southwest Corner of York County 3 miles Southwest of Hanover, Pa. Memorial Weekend May 30th I enjoyed a bike ride that took me around this beautiful lake.

3,452 acres “Codorus State Park” is in the rolling hills of York County, 1,275 acre Lake Marburg has 26 miles of shoreline and is a rest stop for migrating water foul and shorebirds. Anglers love the lake for warm water fishing and can also fish the Codorus Creek for trout. Sailing, picnicking, camping and swimming in the pool are just a few popular activities.

Our bike ride started at East Berlin, Hanover area and ended back at East Berlin, total of 64 miles. Great Day with Beautiful weather and sights.

Sometimes I find my most creative ideas come from absorbing  nature.

Mercersburg Academy

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

Mercersburg Academy prepares young men and women from diverse backgrounds for college and for life in a global community. Fine Arts is just one of the eight basic disciplines : English, History, Language, Mathematics, Physical Education,Religion and science.

I had the pleasure of working with a senior student “Kip Hawbaker” on his senior project, stained glass as well as a kiln formed bowl.

If you should ever have the opportunity to visit “Mercersburg Academy” be sure to visit the Chapel.¬† The Stained Glass Windows in the Chapel are breath taking.¬† Nine stained glass makers (American, English and Irish) designed and executed the thirty-six windows and twelve clear glass windows. Each is rich in symbolic figuration and invested with thoughtful design.¬† Also, you will appreciate the beautiful Details in the Wood, Metal, and Stone. Mercersburg Academy is located at 300 East Seminary Street, Mercersburg, Pa. 17236
