We moved to Saint Louis around Labor Day 2008. I soon found the Arch to be a captivating subject. It is always beautiful. The structure is magnificent. The design awes me. It captures and reflects light. It soars into the clouds. It is flat. It curves. It is huge. It is thread-thin.
Caught up with so many other things, I left it alone for months.
I went there this morning. It completely awed me again. I felt vertigo looking straight up at it. I saw a man on a cell phone walking near it so slowly, looking up and up, trying to explain it to someone.
