“The sexiest curve on your body is your smile. Flaunt it.” ~ Unknown
Those Shakers with their simple symmetry. In all the times I’ve been in the Trustee’s Building I had never gone to the top floor until the Rental Sister trip. This is what I found. Such simple beauty.
For the Shakers there was beauty and Godliness in simplicity. And also in symmetry.
Weeks ago at Shakertown, the rentals and I took a brief hay ride. With Kelly and Cassie engaged in conversation, Pam and I had our own talk. She and I had a few of these talks that weekend. They are treasured moments for sure.
Shakertown is fabulous all the time, but it’s especially moving at sunset/sunrise and at night. The Rental Sisters and I were out and about at sundown after a fabulous dinner when I passed the Center Family Dwelling, nearly 22,000 square feet. I look forward to doing it again. Maybe I’ll remember to take my tripod next time. Look for a ton of nighttime photos if I do.
In the first family dwelling at Shakertown, which they outgrew and it went on to be the architect’s building and something else, it’s opened today to the public with displays of various activities that took place there. The upstairs has been cordoned off, and under the stairs this moment of positivity appears.
