Dismals Canyon in Alabama, a place I'd love to visit. Why is it called Dismals; probably after the dismalites found there. What are dismalites? Click on the link to find out. I came across the Fredrick Kiesler Grotto for Meditation designed in 1963 for New Harmony Indiana and built posthumously in 2012 in Houston Texas.
An unusual concept using steel construction for a grotto. Yet I can imagine sitting inside must have a nurturing or cradling effect. When I went down to the studio I was thinking the season is for giving. Sometimes I feel like an infant in a cradle needing love and at the same time having so much love to give. Yet feeling inadequate or helpless on how to give or receive love.
