Now that we are settled in for the next three months in Idaho Falls, we’ve been exploring the surrounding area every weekend. This part of Idaho is a close neighbor to Wyoming and Montana, Big Sky country. That hemmed in feeling that we’d been experiencing in the Bay Area seems like a far away memory when standing in the middle of a Yellowstone valley, with only the bison for company.
These paintings by Irish painter Tom Climent “reminds us of how our spatial ability becomes spatial knowledge as we navigate our world and with this knowledge we create a place for ourselves.” Most of us have it within our control to decide what our place in this world looks like. The places we occupy, whether permanently or just for a time, effect our psyche, offering chaos or peace.
