This last shot is of me back in the day when I was 5 feet tall, standing beside what was said to be the tallest saguaro cactus in the state of Arizona. The base of the cactus is down in a gully, so it's even taller than in looks in this picture. That's a LOT of cactus!
A ccouple of friends and I went to see the Sistine Chapel exhibit in Charlotte, NC several weeks ago. We were fascinated to see the art work, and I remain dumbfounded to imagine how challenging it would have been for Michelangelo to produce such stunning works of art on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
