Friday Reviews . . . ThornCrown Chapel

This is ThornCrown Chapel a marvel of grace and beauty just outside Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

The builder of the chapel originally bought the property for his retirement home. Instead, this chapel that wasn't intended to be, that the builder didn't have the funds to finish; has been named 4th on the American Institute of Architects' list of the top buildings in America built during the 20th Century.

It is one of those places that takes your breath away. There are pages of pictures on the web page. None of them do it justice. I have been there -- in the stillness, and the sunlight, the trees and the Ozark mountains.

If you are locked into freezing rain, sleet and snow; as I am. Page through the picture galleries.
