I am constantly drawn to stained glass, always looking for a practical way to use it in homes without being gaudy or cathedral-esque. The first time that I saw reference to the Wholeo Dome I knew that it was right up my alley.
Completed in 1974 by the artist Caroling, it now sits at the Farm School in Summertown, Tennessee.
The other appeal of the dome to me is its encouragement of meditation. I think that "slow" moments are unique to everyone, always called by a different name. Here in the South, the typical moment of calm comes on a breezy porch in a rocking chair with the sweetest glass of iced tea.
Reflecting is important- Whether you have a gazebo, a park bench under a thick cover of foliage, a courtyard or just a blanket you can take outside and sit a while, take a moment and look around- listen. You may be surprised what you're missing.
