Dragonfly in Sculpture !!!!!!!!
May 29, 2014
As I was driving home from the 'girlfriend's weekend' in Shawnee, OK I took small highways to avoid the bland Interstate since I had plenty of time.
On the Interstate (going there on Friday) the drive from my house to Deb's is about 4.5 hours. But going home on Sunday, I decided to take a lot of smaller highways to see the countryside since I had plenty of time. It took me about 6 hours to get home, but it was WELL worth it.
As I was approaching Stratford, OK I noticed this structure from several miles away. I passed it first, then I pulled off on a small road to take a long shot of it, but it was so interesting that I decided to make a U-turn and go back to explore it more closely.

When I turned around and went back, I pulled into the driveway of the company, and I saw that the fence was locked, but there was a a hole in the surrounding fence, that I could squeeze through to get onto the grounds.
Just as I was contemplating whether I should squeeze through the hole in the fence and access the grounds or not, a man drove up and got out of his pickup truck. I asked him if he knew the owners, and would they mind if I went onsite & took some photos.
He said, "No problem, this is my brother's place. Have fun with your camera" I said "Cool and thank you. That's a neat structure of the hand over there" and he replied, "Yep, my brother thinks he's an artist. Have fun little lady." And he unlocked the gate for me.
I encourage you to take a look at this in the larger size.
I took lots of photos of the hand. I'm not a good judge of height, but this was a very, very tall structure. If you take a look at the link of the shot I took from a distance, you'll easily be able to see how tall it is compared to the buildings.
From "Spirit-animals.com".........If a dragonfly has zipped into your life, the native American's believed that:
"They are asking that you pay attention to your deeper desires and be mindful of the outcome we wish to have. There are lessons to be learned and you are reminded that “what you think” is directly proportionate to what you “see on the surface”. In other words your thoughts are responsible for your physical surroundings."
"The Dragonfly is also letting you know to live your life to the fullest with what you have. It also beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits that need changing. Use the Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation. It will bring you the light and color of transformation into your life."
Have a delightful day today my friends!
