Crichton and Earhart

Now there’s a couple of names I never thought I’d see in a sentence.

As I work furiously on a few projects I sometimes turn really inward and become a philosophical crazy man.

It’s the reason all the great quotes are coming along.

The 1st was sent in by a long time reader, and commenter of this blog. The quote is from Amelia Earhart, coincidentally I just sat through the trailer for the upcoming movie on her life, it looks terrific!

“Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.” – Amelia Earhart

So well put in so few words. An amazing woman. I would have loved to have met her and spent time with a woman of her courage, strength, vision and “can-do” attitude.

The other quote is from well known author Michael Crichton —-

“I am certain there is too much certainty in the world.”

Well said Michael, well said.

Back to the conceptuals. If I am lucky I will get to show this project off someday.

Not the one below, that’s just added because I like showing the progression of a job. Plus the post needed an image!!!

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.

  1. very helpful landscape blog!
    I really love this stone waterfall!– even if its a work in progress
    I had this guy do my landscape and front gate (out of stone ) as well as a stone waterfall for my front lake and pool. His name is John Zito I think there are photographs in the gallery of his works. Its based in south florida (where I live) but when I saw your stone waterfall, his landscape came to mind. I hop you enjoy:
