My Sight on Flight
Yesterday I had the honor of judging the Ridge Art Association‘s Aviation Exhibition. It was my first time visiting the Winter Haven Municipal Airport and only my second (I think) in Winter Haven. Listening and car-dancing to the “top 105 party songs” on the drive over set the afternoon’s soundtrack. Photographs, pencil drawings, mixed media, watercolors, a cafe with gigantic pancakes and colorful shiny jets on the airfield—this short road trip held much for the senses. I’ll be returning and scheduling a future Destination Journal in the fall, with two very different environments—Gilbert Field (the airport) and lavender and Lace, a tea room in nearby Lake Alfred. In the meantime, more details coming soon on the next DJ. It’s a Sensory Tour related to smell at the Gallery at Avalon Island in Orlando, FL on Saturday, June 15.
Today, take a drive to an unknown location. Does the music on your car radio stir any memories? What smells hit you upon arrival? See or feel anything unexpected? Take note in your Destination Journal.
