The Goddess of War and Wisdom who lives in Nashville, Tennessee


Everyone knows about the Parthenon the Ancient Greeks built to honor Athena–their goddess of war and wisdom. But did you know Nashville, Tennessee has built a replica that houses a full-size Athena statue? It is free to visit but about $6/person to enter and see the art gallery and statue.






There’s no pictures allowed in the art gallery on the bottom floor, but when you come upstairs you see…

The perspective is off on this panorama, but the room is lined with columns.

Wandering Kansas City + the Library District


During a week-long business trip to Kansas City, Missouri this fall, my coworker and I took a few hours to explore the cute city.

It’s a lovely city, much quieter than I would hav expected.

This is literally THE PRETTIEST library I’ve been to 😍

The library used to be a bank, and the downstairs vault is now a movie theatre.

Another safe.

U. S. Mail letter box.

These are beignets with caramel-bacon sauce 😋
