It’s 2012!

Let’s hope it’s a year which will…

Here’s a slideshow of Dale Chihuly‘s dazzling glass sculpture installation, Desert Towers, which is part of the permanent collection at Phoenix’s Desert Botanical Gardens.

Happy New Year to everyone!

If you think the Mayans might be on to something, you can countdown on my Mayan End of Calendar page, listed in the sidebar, under “Pages.”

  1. Those sculptures are sure interesting! As far as the Mayan predictions, well, their civilization didn’t turn out so well for them and I will be very surprised if their predictions will either.

  2. I love Chihuly. We were gazing at the piece at the VandA on Friday. It has such joy and freedom.

  3. Dear Candace, I wish you a very happy new year and best wishes for you and your family in 2012!!
