Speechless Sunday: Dallas, a Juxtaposition

Industry Observer

Sometimes if you're distracted, you'll miss out on hidden beauty.  I was recently at the Dallas Arboretum for an exhibit by the renowned artist, Dale Chihuly.  The artwork, which was brilliantly displayed amongst the flora and fauna of the Dallas Arboretum, was truly a sight to behold, but as I turned away for a moment, I spotted this view of downtown Dallas across White Rock Lake.  It reminded me of how special Dallas is in its balance of urban and non-urban areas in such close proximity to one another.  Truly a special city and a special juxtaposition!

you are right about balance.  sometimes we spend so much time working that we miss the beauty that lies around

Steve  Beauty is always around us if we look  ,I think it is us who sometimes hides from beauty

Balance and beauty... two of the several necessities of life.  Luckily in the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex we have a healthy portion of each.  And yes, everyone... the photo above shows the close proximity of White Rock Lake... which is part of the city of Dallas... to Dallas Intown, Dallas Uptown, Lakewood, Lake Highlands, and so many of the wonderful Dallas neighborhoods.
