Museum | Pullman, WA | June 2019

Mirror-sided buildings offer opportunities for reflection. They appear ethereal — thin, light, transparent — yet often anchor a cluster of more traditional, more solid structures. Enlightened people do the same. They stand centered in themselves and their surroundings, fully engaged yet slightly apart, receiving yet giving. Their presence gives us pause. In them, we see aspects of ourselves (beauty, goodness, connection) on which we most likely need to focus.
